This is a Weekend project made with a Tokymaker, an intuitive way for youngs and adults to learn the fundamentals of electronics, programming and solve problems creatively. If you don’t know what is it yet, follow the link and come back later!
Today is a boring rainy saturday because we can’t go outside to that laser tag activity we were planning to. What can we do?
Let’s make the Laser tag ourselves! that simple. 🙂
We will use a light sensor that detects when the laser is targeting the right point. Then, with the help of a servo motor, raise up a flag and show on the screen a message: “HIT!”
Learn to code your own prototypes using the simple visual coding interface and just one finger and program it without installing software or connecting cables. Understand the principles os electronics connecting in the most intuitive way, a large variety of sensors and actuators.
An LDR is a component that has a (variable) resistance that changes with the light intensity that falls upon it. This allows them to be used in light sensing circuits.
A servomotor (also called servo) is a device similar to a DC motor that has the ability to be located in any position within its range of operation, and remain stable in that position.
