|I'm designing a Laser Tag, or MILES Tag, RPG. I've ordered a mock-up of the weapon and I'm in the process of fleshing out a circuit that will give me an audio and visual weapon signature while triggering the Laser Transmitting device.
I expect to use a basic circuit that I've used before when doing similar projects with machine guns. Trigger switch closes the circuit on the transmitter, simultaniously closing the circuit on an audio poweram which features a cheap RShack MP3 player with the audio signature on repeat. While LEDs flash to create the light signature.
For this project I want the electronic copmonents to reside inside the weapon, which essentially amounts to a four foot peice of PVC tube.
Thus, the rub: I need this to operate using a relatively small powersupply. All my prefious efforts have used 12v batts.
Any ideas, I'll keep you posted with my progress.
