Walkie talkie motion sensor? Answered
Alright, so I'm sure this isn't one of those ideas that very many will get super excited about... but I was thinking it would be cool to take a walkie talkie and put a motion sensor or event a breakable laser beam on it.
In detail, the idea would be while playing paintball or something similar, you could plant it somewhere... once someone went passed it, it would use the alert function on the walkie (I don't know what the proper name is for that button, but it's the one that makes the obnoxious noise when you press it). This would allow everyone on your team to know when the other team had passed that point.
So, how would I tackle a project like this? As an electronics newbie am I in over my head, or is this something that I could handle with a little messing around? Ideas?
