Introduction: The 2 Minute Laser Tag Circuit

Do think laser tag is pretty cool?

Well if you have an Arduino and an LDR, you can learn how to build and program a laser target circuit quite literally in just 2 minutes!

At the end of the video you will see how it works, its not easy to hit the little LDR from several meters and if you add some kind of score counter to the code this could be quite a cool game to play against your friends

This looks like a very fun project. I will have to make a few and play lazer tag with my friends, thank you.

I need some help here. I love this project! I want to modify it to use a Wave shield (by adafruit), instead of the buzzer, so I can play a steel target sound effect instead of the buzzer that I can't hear because of my service related hearing loss - but everybody else hears and hates!! I would appreciate your help with this.

It seems very simple, I would start from here for my first Arduino UNO experiment! Have you ever tested it exposing to sunlight? Is it capable to discern environment light from red laser dot? If not... could you suggest me an affordable circuit or arduino shield? Thank you!

Nice project, can I suggest an ambient sensor for a mark 2?

Sounds like a plan, any particular sensor in mind, can you send me a link?
