My son and I going to do our first project ever. We want to embed into existing large star wars mini-figures (about 10 inches high) the ability for them to “shoot” and for the other figure to register being shot. To be clear, nothing is being shot out- this would be via infrared or something like that. It does not need to fit into the cavity of the figure. Ideally it would make some sort of sound when it shoots and when it is hit.
Does anyone have a parts list for such a project? It does not not need to be anything impressive. This will be our first time using a soldering iron etc and my son is 10 years old.
Any help would be appreciated. We do not know where to start.
