The first one I read about (the one pictured) is airsoft.

But you can use the same technologies for other applications (ie- an actual gattling gun, paintball, whatever).


And you're probably sittin' there saying "WTF Ambly, Gattling Gun? You madman!"


Well... yes I am as a matter of fact.

I didn't watch the whole thing. It would be simple to do with a remote- but a bitch with any automatic aiming.

One of the security tradeshows i went to in San Antonio had a nice piece of motion tracking software they wrote. wouldn't be that hard to put a grid map against it and program the machine to "point" to that specific spot on the map.


Just some programming and well, money of course.

I use to have a program that will track and identify people. I used it in my senior project. We made a segway that was completely self sufficient. It's purpose was to be a moving sentry so we had a program where it would follow a predetermined path to monitor for movement and track it. We could of mounted guns or used it to go into a contaminated area to identify casualties. It also worked using the UT wifi system. We could drive it all over campus using the webcam and talk to people with the speakers/mic we mounted on it. It was a blast to screw with people.

We wanted to mount one of those thinkgeek USB nerf rocket launchers on it, but UT wouldn't pay for it.

The school. The segway was 5k at the time and we spent another couple thousand on building everything to go on it. They paid for everything. It was all done on a research contract for the army.

The UT IRIS lab does all kinds of research for a bunch of agencies and designs motion tracking/identification for airports and stuff so they bring in a lot of business and money. We didn't get to pick the project they kind of just give us what they want done. I was at first given a project to research power sources for some little robot, but jumped shipped and joined the segway group.
