PODCAST!

One of the great things about working on the Arduino platform is having access to a TON of help on the internet. When I started these projects over a year ago, I really knew nothing about programming and hardware. I only had a vision and a passion to make certain devices that would be compatible with the Lazer Tag gear I'm so heavily invested in. So I searched the web and taught myself through many of the great on-line tutorials recources that's out there.

PROJECT UPDATES

Even thought it's been quite here on my blog, I've been busily working on updating all of my projects
- which has been actually pretty intense. So I'd thought I'd take a quick timeout from coding on the Arduino to bring everyone up to speed.

ZOMBIE SENSOR - This project has been known as the FERAL IR SENSOR - it will get a formal name change soon.  Last summer the "Mark I" version was used extensively at TagFest. I've been working on some updates to help improve upon the "Mark I" and it's looking really nice. I'll be making an announcement soon about this, along with a video to show off what's different.
