How to make a BB gun turret? Answered
Basically, i want to make a kick-ass BB gun turret. I have 2 big guns that look like the M16 (automatic)
I want to make a turret that will scan for people/objects and shoot them when i say so (so i don't kill my cat). I have money, skill (I have made my own electric tricycle) and time. I was thinking that a combination of the Mindstorm NXT, a webcam and an RC car would do the trick. Here's some details why i think so:
Mindstorm: Detects motion and can turn the turret 360 degrees when i say so.
RC car: can pull trigger and also turn the turret 360 degrees
Webcam: I wanna be able to film/see the person i shoot.
Any thoughts on this? If you know a way that will allow me to exclude the NXT that would be great.
I'm 14, i live in China, Servos are harder/impossible to get by, and my parents are supposed to know i'm making this (i'm making this for a "client"...)
Edit: Won't be needing the NXT...
Still: anyone have any good ideas?
