Have you ever wanted to convert your Tippmann X7, or any paintball gun for that matter, into a fully functional laser-activated killing machine? Who hasn’t? Team Cynergy, a central New Jersey paintball team, made a video tutorial on how to use a Red Dot laser sight with a Tippmann X7 so that every time the laser beam is crossed, the paintball gun is fired. Everything needed to make this mod for yourself can be purchased at your local Radio Shack (except for the laser sight and gun). Sweet huh?
The tutorial can get a little complicated as it uses microcontrollers (circuit boards), and the code is written with the P BASIC 2.5 programming language (don’t worry, I’ve never heard of it either).
Regardless of how it’s done, the idea is a very good one. One of the best paintball gun mods I’ve seen in a while. I’m sure there are plenty of good uses this can be used for. And, of course, there are always more BAD uses… but hey, you only live once :).
