I'm actually working on this exact same project.

I came via a different route, I wanted to put mercury switches in the device but needed some form of latching relay to do it and it took off from there.

I would love to get some shots of the inside of your device if possible (I'm heading towards a lexan box myself with all the guts inside except the keypad since i'm in Seattle)

Thanks!

Sure, I can get some pictures up tomorrow. I'm still in the process of redesigning this so I can sell them, but I have a working design right now. To cut costs, I followed the tutorial to make a bare-bones arduino, and am now using that instead of the pre-built unit I started with. I'm trying to keep the project updated with pictures and video at http://www.nightscapeairsoft.com I have a really crude wiring diagram here:

Heres a picture of the inside, i'll get better ones when the college work lets up.

The 8 pin connector is for the keypad (only 7 pins are used), the three pin one is for the LCD, and the various 2pin ones are for the 9v -12v power in, power switch, buzzer, and tether. I used a weather proof project box from NTE.

Wisdum-
I am currently building a project extremely similar to this, except in my version the 'bomb' is buried underground, IED style.  I have rigged a solenoid valve to a compressed air tank, and when activated it sprays washable paint upwards out of a shower head, marking anyone who would have been killed by a real bomb.  It would be a great help if I could get a schematic and parts list (preferably with a website or store name where the parts came from)

Thanks
