Step 5: Place Wires On Each Side Of Card

Place one of the two main wires on each side of the business card (or poster board).  Be sure to leave a small amount of the plastic insulation of the wire overlapping the card.

Which nerf gun is that? Jacob will love it. He had a green Tommy gun knock off nerf gun, but it broke and he needs a good replacement.<br><br>Great job on making the interuptor. I needed one for a bubble machine he got for Christmas. Cheers! john.
It is the &quot;Nerf N-Strike Vulcan EBF-25&quot;, available here: <a>http://www.amazon.com/Nerf-N-Strike-Vulcan-EBF-25-Blaster/dp/B0013U95U2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1294385977&amp;sr=8-2</a><br> <br> The plastic tripod that comes with it doesn't really hold it in position well. I have much better luck mounting it to a table or wheelchair with a &quot;Manfrotto Magic Arm&quot; (aka Universal Mount) with a clamp on each end.<br> <br> There is more info on setting up and mounting these on my &quot;Combat Wheelchair&quot; project page here: <a href="http://www.gavinphilips.com/projects/combatwheelchair-1">http://www.gavinphilips.com/projects/combatwheelchair-1</a>
I have been thinking about this Light Strike guns :http://tinyurl.com/86k3puk<br>The battery interrupt should work to fire. Maybe a couple of servos to aim. One for up\down, the other for left\right, wired to your chair's joysitck or an Arcade joystick.
your Combat wheelchair is insanely awesome! I have made my son Jacob a Batmobile, a Land Speeder, and wanted a combat water gun. Your chair goes so far beyond, lol. Nice!
Can you use a stereo jack instead of a mono jack?
I suppose you could, and it might work alright. &quot;Ability switches&quot; in general use a mono plug, and I have had a few issues when connecting stereo to mono. Sometimes it seems like the contacts don't quite line up, and you have to pull the plug out slightly to make it work well. It's definitely worth trying, though, especially if stereo is all you have on hand.<br><br>If you try it, please let us know how it goes.
Nice, I use this kind of thing for clocks a lot to measure longterm signals in experiments.
Cool, I hadn't thought of that sort of application.
Nice project, you should swap around the pictures in your first step, so that is shows your finished version as the thumbnail, opposed to the commercially available one.
Done. Thanks for the input!
Thanks for sharing a nice easy, but useful project!
