    Default Multiple Game Target Ideas

    I need help with multiple game target (contact) ideas. Every year for our Thanksgiving office party we have a turkey shoot (rubber bands). The targets are made from presentation board foil back and super super soft springs for distance off the contact. I really want to have a target (contact) that is sensitive enough to detect a rubber band impact but sturdy enough to withstand a nerf ball.

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks John

    Basically you'll build a kind of drum pad. So an electret microphone or piezo sensor should do the trick... Electret microphone are darn cheap... can be found almost everywhere.

    It's not a bug, it's a random feature.
    There's no problem, only learning opportunities.

    Thanks Steve, I will have to think about the construction for that one for a while. I guess I could use maybe mylar for the drum head but wonder if it will stay taut enough. Generally we have 4 targets ranging from 5" to 12" in diameter. Gives me something to think about.

    Thanks John
