Recycling old funfair "light" guns Answered
Hi, first of all, I'm not sure I'm posting in the right place, if I'm not I apologize, but I couldn't find any that seemed more correct.
Anyway, my grandfather passed away many years ago and among his knickknack were two handguns and two rifles that he had crafted for a funfair he worked at. (Images at the bottom)
All 4 are originally made shoot light as far as I'm aware (he passed away when I was very young, and I've never seen them in action), they look like they are meant for light at least, as they all have lenses inside the barrel.
That said they don't look functional anymore, and especially not the rifles as my little brother wanted to rebuild them for laser tag, but only got as far as taking them apart.
The thing is I have some experience with electronics (Arduino, Raspberry PI and more) and a few years of experience programming (though mainly pc programs).
I want to make something with them, but I've had them kicking around for a while now, but to be honest, I have no idea what I could do with them.
Any and all ideas are appreciated =) (except suggestions about turning them into real weapons ;) )
