Arduino Licorice Launcher


Voice Activated
Room Tracking
Catapult Launching
Magazine Reloading
NATO Red Vines Original Standard Issue



Notations
1. Indeed, this should have implemented a WIFI module how ever at the moment I did not have a MKR1000 on premises, thus the resulted Uno and PC connected USB. Should a MKR1000 be made available, it would be altered to suit. In conclusion, pft.
2. Notable thanks to hackerspace MakerBar in Hoboken, New Jersey.
3. Immense thx to Red Vines who sent along a swag (large) box of the best g/d 'licorice' #TeamRedVines
