Military Research, blinkenlights, free nerf guns

What it does

State of the art home defense.

How we built it

Mounted a nerf gun distributed at the event onto a makeshift frame, along with a webcam to track targets and a servo to pull the trigger.

Challenges we ran into

Limited access to hardware, primarily frame materials and motors, as well as mounting the small servo in a way that allowed the trigger to be pulled and held the mechanism firmly in place proved difficult.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Finding a firm platform and consistent trigger mechanism, and hooking up the communication between opencv and the arduino

What we learned

Science HAS gone too far

What's next for HAcKaTHOn gun

Lateral motion, stronger motors for faster rotation
