Following an episode of the big bang theory when they played secret agent laser obstacle chess I thought to myself wouldn’t it be cool to have a full size laser obstacle course for my scouts to use. So I built one. Consisting of 30 lasers controlled in 3 banks of 10 to allow the pattern to vary the course is 2m wide by 4m long and has been a massive hit with both my scouts and scouts accross the county when it has been used at operation bald eagle. It comes apart for easy transportation and is fully computer controlled by Arduinos and a custom piece of windows software that I designed and programmed.
