The Pyro system is based off a well known Magicians trick - basically using a very-very small piece of "FlashPaper" fired by the Arduinos electronics  :o
- it is a one shot system - though installing extra pyrotubes (with different payloads and coloured flashpaper) would also be very easy to integrate.

Ah, cool! i like it a lot... does it shoot automatically under certain conditions or do you control it?

The system is Totally Automatic and controlled through the sensors.
At present the Pyro-tube is programmed to fire when one of the two LDR detectors give a very high reading.
This is what i call the "Angry Mode"- meaning if you shine a very bright light at his head (i use a Laser pen) he will get angry and his Bright RED led Eyes light up (to warn) and 2 seconds later the Pyro-tube fires.
Laser light is much brighter than the light coming off a flame so it does not interfere with his flame detection software.
