eyes use infrared light, right? so, assuming i have the ability to ghetto rig a connection to the board (im fairly confident i do), could i, instead of spending $20+ on paintball specific eyes, buy and use an IR emitter and detector from radio shack for $2.50?

Even then, get a small plastic 4-wire wiring harness that may fit, or fit with a litter tinkering. for $5 you may be able to do it. Even then, its $5 so why not try it?

Worth a shot, just be sure to buy a connector thingy so you don't have to solder directly to the board.
