Anyone Made/Thought About Making This? (MILES Tag) Answered
Hi, I recently stumbled on the DIY Miles tag web site. For those of you who don't know MILES tag stands for Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System. It is used to train solders in combat, without that pesky thing that kept pooping up in live fire training: death. So, it basially looks like a really fun game of laser tag. All of the parts are obtainable on the site, assembled PCBs as well as just the PCBs and other various important parts. If you do enough digging into this small community of DIY laser-tag..ers you can find that they are apparently a very helpful bunch and there are lots of how-to documents. There are many documents out there I was wondering if anyone here had any ideas or if they had built one.
