Automatic sentry gun help? Answered

I am building an automatic sentry gun, where a nerf gun, using a camera, will target a moving object, aim and shoot at it. This is a course project and the professor said I need to add an extra feature, or make it more intelligent than that to get an A. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can add to this system to make it cooler and more A- deserving. All ideas are welcome:D

Thank you!

Laser pointers
Distance counter
Image capture while or before shooting (for averting legal complications if the target plans to sue you)
Port the live images to the internet
Control the sentry over the internet (with password of course)
After firing send an SMS (xx number of bullets fired)

What are some ways to get the distance to a moving target? Under $100.

Easy way: Get a ultrasonic distance counter from the market. Easy to configure.

Hard way: Make a camera and laser rig (something like in the image). You have to write your own code to process the image and also do the calibration.

Hope it helps.
