- Make a Lightsaber that is relatively easy to wield.
- Have it make sounds on ignite/extuinguish/general use.
- Have the colour be customisable on the fly.
First off thanks to ModMyPi for supplying the parts for this project!
And thanks to the person on the Twitter handle hackster.io for helping with the name of the project!
As for the reasons behind the project + overall design:

First up the parts for this project were supplied by DFRobot! They contacted me a few weeks back and asked if I had any ideas for a project and I thought a cool one to do would be a Biometric fingerprint ID locking Nerf Gun; inspired by the gun in Skyfall.
So thank you DFRobot! Make sure you check them out for your project needs.

I love Half Life and I’ve always wanted to make a Gravity Gun, but there wasn’t really a way I could think of making one, short of working for DARPA or something – then the other month I saw this video.
And I was like “Fascinating! I never suspected such things could be.” and imagined strapping the levitation unit onto the front of an orange Nerf Gun.
So that’s what I did.

The parts for this project were supplied by ModMyPi – so a massive thank you to them! I recommend their site for getting parts for your project, be it Arduino, Raspberry Pi or pretty much anything else you can think of; they always dispatch items quickly and with my stuff I even got a bag of Haribo – which is awesome. Hopefully this is the beginning of a great partnership.

For a while now I have been thinking about using a Raspberry Pi with some sort of visual indicator as a form of artificial life simulator, I wanted to create something that would be able to spawn a number of entities that would have random properties and be able to move around and interact with each other, forming a sort of virtual ecosystem; and then experiment with it to see what happens.

So the other week I fired up a Raspberry Pi and began to work on a program with the following goals in mind:
I’ve seen quite a few cool projects with Gameboy and Raspberry Pi, such as:
These are really fantastic projects and inspired me to make an attempt at my own Gameboy Color Raspberry Pi – and then attempt a full game of Player Unknowns Battlegrounds on it.

Because ammo counters are cool and range finders are also pretty cool and Nerf is cool – mix them together and its ice cold.
This would give me the display needed for the range in CM and a clear display for the ammo counter itself.
