I have been working on a new prop to function as an electronic capture point, similar to the Territories or Conquest game modes. Here's a quick video showing the basic function of the prop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXoD6HK8k7A
When the point is captured, a small buzzer beeps, and a large servo raises a small (12") flag. As with the other props I have made, the PCB has all the Atmega pins broken out to headers, so adding more features will not be a problem.
Cost for the final version will be below $100, hopefully closer to $70.

This is a proof of concept test for an airsoft wireless target. There are two separate targets behind the paper, each has its own micro-controller, sensor, and WiFi card. The micro-controller tracks the impacts, and when a period of 3 seconds has passed with no hits, it sends the data to a server. The server is a Raspberry Pi running a LAMP stack. The micro-controller cannot send data wirelessly and detect hits simultaneously (working to fix this),which caused it to miss one hit in this video. The next version of this target will use multiple small sensors to more accurately detect where the shots impacted.
