Dartbox Prototype

A physical computing box to detect the presence of magnetic darts to assist in the flow of a computer vision dart game.

Magnetic reed switches are positioned around a bolt post to add redundancy. The device is powered over USB and transmits changes in its state serially.

The final will feature RGB leds and no debugging doodads.
