Frustrated with having to constantly reset his targets when target shooting, Eldon took the Bright Sparks approach and after matching-up a bit of technology with a fantastic idea Robot Revenge was born!
I enjoy shooting my Airsoft pistol at targets, but I get frustrated when I have to reset a target after each successful shot, and I also have to keep track of the hits myself. You can get electronic BB targets in other countries, but they’re expensive to order and don’t have all the features that I thought would be cool.
I thought it would be great to have my own target that records my hits, which I could hear from 20 metres away. A small digital display would be too hard to see from that distance, so I thought about adding speakers to register my hits, but then someone suggested headphones. After a bit of research, I decided that a wireless headphone was the best option. But I still wanted to include speakers for spectators.
The best part about developing Robot Revenge is that it gave me a good excuse to tear apart lots of toys and gadgets!
