Hi everyone! i stumbled upon the defusable clock kit randomly, and thought it would be a great idea to incorporate it somehow into airsoft games. If you are unfamiliar with airsoft, a simple google search or wikipedia lookup will help!
Some quick background info: I help coordinate airsoft games and ops for Airsoft Extreme, a major retailer based in California. The company throws their own events and I thought this clock kit would help make our games and scenarios unique and fun!
After a few weeks of work, we came up with this: http://youtu.be/ACId2NO2Uy0
I’ll post another video after we have play tested to see how it goes. So basically, think of “Counter-Strike” in real life. One team can set the “device” while the other time has to shoot their way through the opfor to defuse it. We still want to incorporate some stuff into the project box (hence the empty space on the right side in the video) to maybe add some more “danger” into the situation. Something like a timed spring loaded board of baby powder or bb’s or something similar. Anyways, just wanted to say thanks again for this kit, as it was a wonderful catalyst of an innovative game idea.
PS: and for those that are curious, we did find a way to make the power source portable. we have it so the power source can be a 11.1 v, 3 cell lipo RC battery. That way this can be deployed anywhere, even out on fields. No “outlet” needed, but we still have the option to plug it in with a regular dc converter if available.November 20, 2011 at 1:34 pm #1232
Dudes, that rocks. Hard. Do you call this device “The Burrito”? Hilarious.
Can you send a nice still photograph of this so I can include it in the gallery here:
I will also embed the video in the gallery.
Also, there are all kinds of modifications that can be made to the defusable clock, like adding lots more LEDs, changing the sound, changing the code itself, etc. I’d be happy to collaborate to help the Airsoft community on these sorts of things. Thx again for sharing your work.November 21, 2011 at 12:55 am #1233
yep, we started calling it the burrito because as we were building it, everyone kept calling it the “bomb” and I didn’t want any extra “attention” called to us (as i am sure you have experienced). I dont have it with me right now, but hopefully later on this week or next I can get a good picture for you.
Thanks again for making this open source!November 29, 2011 at 3:38 am #1248
TeamAWS, hope you can send a good photo for the gallery, because there’s an Airsoft place in Florida that’s been building some crazy devices. Look what Combat City has done: http://nootropicdesign.com/defusableclock/gallery.htmlDecember 15, 2011 at 12:29 am #1323

The Burrito 2.0 is unreal. That’s just incredible work.
You guys must be legendary in the Airsoft community!March 21, 2012 at 12:08 am #898March 21, 2012 at 3:25 pm #894
TeamAWS continues to rock. Hard.
