I need to sit down and draft up something along these lines. The hard part, imo, would still be how to detonate it - remote trigger, trip line (physical or IR), photosensor...? Don't know yet - need to explore the options. Just wouldn't want the device to be obvious in the field.
Trip wire or remote would be good. Or go through trial and error. Find out what is the most easy yet effective design to make.
