Here I will show you an overview on how to make a robotic talking turret, loosely based off of the turrets from the popular game, Portal. This instructable should help anyone wanting to do an animatronics project.

This project require some experience with tools, electronic circuits, and maybe a little programming.
Here is a sample video of the turret:http://vimeo.com/3914462

Let's get started!
Note: This turret was NOT designed to be very good at tracking and shooting - it's more for show than functionality. If you are one of those people who have nothing better to do than criticize other people's Instructables, just close the screen.
