    Looks like the doofus nearly forgot to set his laptop screen down. The gun 'almost' shoots the screen. Helluva lot better than I can do though. :D

    all this needs is for it to recognize a patch on someone's arm and 'ignore' that target, and its good and ready for the battle field

    Until the enemies start taking the patches from dead friendlies? Real Marines and Soldiers are still better, for the time being.
    Plus imagine explaining to someones family, "We dont know why the turret shot your son, we think it might have glitched..."

    I think its just fun to have. I saw one a while ago that used an airsoft gun and was much more accurate. I think one of the problems with this one is the recoil from shooting the gun he needs some stronger servos, but if he got those he probably would need to find a different power source than a laptop battery.

    Also, there is the fact he is shooting at a small, fast moving vehicle, probably would have better luck with a person.

    Would have been /SO/ much cooler if he used the tf2 sounds instead of portal ones. I like portal, but still, it just doesnt work for a paintball gun.
