As you may have heard, OmniCorpDetroit has been chosen to participate as one of thirty hackerspaces around the planet to try to incorporate technology into education in the Great Global Hackerspace Challenge. Inspired by collaboration and the progress collective thought can achieve, Element14 decided to give us $900 and said ‘go on!’
DIY Lasertag is what we came up with! One week into the development stage and we’re on our way to braking down a $2,000 professional lasertag pack into a much, much (MUCH, MUCH) cheaper DIY version, complete with step-by-step manual and side projects and experiments to try with your microcontrollers.
We invite you to follow our progress and see how we fair come Maker time in May.
