10 interesting projects using Arduino boards

Keeping with the 80's theme, J44 Industries has brought back the fun of Laser Tag with their Arduino-based Duino Tag system, which pairs a light gun with an Arduino but goes beyond what the original platform featured. Their MK 2 Duino Tagger houses an Arduino Duemilanove dev board in the gun's clip, which is powered by a 9V battery. Housed in the top of the weapon is an IR transmitter and focal lens to hit other opponents who wear the receiver. The five slots on the side are red LED backed and act as an ammo counter, letting users know how much they have left before needing a reload, which is done by pressing a button on the side. A speaker housed in the back compartment of the weapon allows for those futuristic firing sounds, making it easy to know when you've scored a hit. Obviously, using an Arduino allows for any number of customisations such as making it rapid fire or changing the sounds. Not bad for an inexpensive alternative to the Laser Tag system.
