Nerf Stryfe controlled by an Arduino. PWM motor control, round counter, and dart chronograph.
I started with cracking open the Stryfe and connecting the motor, battery, and switch wiring (except for the jam clear door) to an RJ45 jack. A small dongle, which hides under the stock, allows normal operation.
A breadboard sits between a hacked up RJ45 cable and an Arduino Uno R3 with LCD (16x2) keypad shield. This configuration provides a testbed for PWM motor control and IR chronograph experiments.
The goal is to develop a sketch and PCB that can be embedded, along with an Arduino Nano, into any flywheel-based blaster.
