Any cool arduino paintball projects out there?

Saw this a while ago:
Got me to thinking about doing some paintball related hacks, seeing as how I have a few spare arduinos and some hardware lying around.

I've been trying to conceptualize an autonomous RC drone paintball gun... I'm thinking I'd have to get ultra lightweight internals (thinking from a mini), and try to run a 12 gram CO2 as a replacement for a HPA tank.

Anyone have any fun arduino paintball projects they've been thinking about/are working on?

Just a heads up, you can't run a mini or in fact majority of electro guns on co2 due to the co2 freezing the solenoid. Plus a 12g would only get you 30 shots at best.

I've always been interested in arduino projects and wanting to do my own but always had too many other projects

Such projects involve bumping old, stupid threads and using the word "arduino" in a sentence.
