Design First Draft

First draft complete! We’ve been working over the holiday to bring you lovely people a first draft for the ‘Alpha Zero’ – our IR ranged weapon. Soon the finished components will be released to the open-source community to allow others to create their own weapon enclosures in time for the launch of the finished electronics and internal components. The design is constantly changing, so this is really just a snapshot.

Our forum will also be launching soon to open up a dialogue between potential users and the developers themselves for formative feedback and any suggestions, more details to follow soon.

Speak soon – Louis, Button Man Development Team


The simplest prototype ever is now done!

We have built the first ever prototype for the Alpha0 circuitry. At the moment, it consists solely of an encoder that sends a set message via infrared to a simple receiver and amplifier circuit linked directly to an oscilloscope.

Simplest infrared encoder decoder circuit imaginable
