Last six weeks i’ve been working on the firmware’s for the three parts of the first version of our laser tagging system. They are finished and released now, but aren’t fully tested yet.

I’ve made a little test platform to test the firmware’s. Only the PU is missing. Also i am using not that powerfull IR leds. For firmware testing this does not matter.

OpenLaserFrag Laser tagging system

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

OpenLaserFrag is a open source project to create an laser tagging system. The project has died and has been restarted two weeks ago. There was an IRC chat about the restart and i joined it out of curiosity.
Even though i’ve said to myself that i will not participate in the project due to time constrictions i have joined the project.

You can find the website here: OpenLaserFrag.org.

A draft of the specifications of our first version can be found here: openlaserfrag-09-draft1

We will keep the first version as simple as possible. I’ve been working on the weapon module lately. The schematics are finished and now i’m working on the firmware.
