Coffee Cup Laser Tag Gun

This project was created for Physics 133 at Cal Poly. It is a laser tag gun encased in a coffee cup (because why not). A big thanks to IBM for their tutorial¬†on getting started for this. At the end of my project the actual gun and code was very different from IBM’s but the initial help was very appreciated! Below are some images of the gun at different stages of the building process.
