Geese fella, so much for intellectual property! How you gonna make any money giving away your talent to the cheap skates around this forum.
Now your forced to take this to another level! That would be adding sound and timing capability. (This is where, in the nature of fair trade
, I give away my idea)
Ok, so now you can see your shot placement. Lets take it up a notch.
Place a piezoelectric contact microphone or some such thing to the target and transmit that back to the 'puter or whatever.
Place another within a couple of inches of the muzzle.
Rig in a gps that provides time stamps in microseconds (milli seconds are way too long unless your shooting thousands of yards
) Found this hard to come by and still be in the cheap skate LRH budget.
Figger the best way to time the two sound pulses to accurately measure the same point on both pulses. Whoo Hooo time of flight. Plus a little math and Waa Laa "BC". Whoo Hooo!
Do your several setups at several distances and you have a world class shooting lab that Mr. Litz (and me) would drool over. Think of the barrel wear that would be saved.
I did a proof of idea set up with my LEGO Mindstorms. Works! But millisecond resolution doesn't cut it. The Arduino will do it.
With your super hooty super long range network capability, you'd be in the berries...
I'm betting Broz would jump all over that
Sell the code through some kind of web store (iTunes) for under 20 bucks.
With your current business model, of giving away the parts list and having the option to purchase already built + some income for software, who knows, you may strike a vein as Len did.
As an inmate said to his buddy making the long walk to the "chair"; "more power to ya!"
BTW, I think you have the best thing going, out there!
Also I appreciate the detail of your setup instructions. Heck, bigngreen could even follow those steps (If he would just read 'em
