The curiosity of mankind to learn about foreign worlds is truly incredible. Due renewed interest in exoplanets we decided to create a tool to teach the people about exoplanets.
What it does
The Exogun will tell its user what exoplanet it is pointing to.
How I built it
By using a 9 DoF IMU we were able to find the gun's coordinates. This took lengthy physical calculations to complete with decent accuracy. The gun itself was made of lego.
Challenges I ran into
Communicating with the gun was difficult. The parts obtained were not functional for most of the time.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud of making such a complex system able to perform such a complex task in a small time.
What I learned
I learned to work in a team and how everyone can contribute equally.
What's next for 16-ExoGun
The Exogun could be developed and modified to be a teaching tool for younger children excited about the galaxy.
