This is truly impressive. I want to see what this guy can do with some materials other than plywood and a cheap digital camera.

Ok, that's badass... though, I think he'd need a real gun and test it on bowling balls or something. Then, just sit back, have a beer, and stay out of camera's field of view.

that's.....pretty damn cool. I had a friend who's senior engineering project was some image recognition software. That shit isn't easy to do.

Here's a real (deadly) Sentry gun. Well, at least a mount. It does not have any automated target acquisition or tracking ability.

Here's the actual video. It is playable/savable with mplayer, and playable with Real Player.

I cannot make it hot, as the yutz who programmed this webforum thinks all urls start with http
Read RFC 1738, and you will see that urls start with the protocol, which is not always http!
