Tracking system


Recommended Posts

I remember hearing that but do not remember seeing it.

 

@Carl had this cannon and backpack fully rigged by some electronical wizard. Fully controllable with head movement I believe. They did it with fancy sensors and Arduino yadda yadda. Carl will correct me. It was badass though. Video footage was impressive.

This looks promising... Wonder if you could slow down the movement with the arduino programming?

This has a cool recoil feature...

 

 

Is this one Carl's cannon?????

 

 

I searched "Arduino predator cannon"

That’s the bugger buddy !

 

jaw dropping stuff !! Has anyone put into a full suit at a con ?

Yes, the You Tube video above with the blue cannon arm shows my cannon and backpack. Animatronic credit goes to Honus who has yet to re-up with the new Lair. The video shows testing of the unit we used for the multi-Lair member suit we built for the 2013 Monsterpalooza for Jamie Hall.

As soon as my film (non predator related) is finished this summer, I will finish the backpack cannon and medkit. My first output was ripped apart by several folks on the old Lair, so I scrapped the project.

Ya tell me about it.

I work with home electronics. But this is a whole other thing.

 

I get the basic of signal path, relays, contact switches and programming automation. But it's a whole diff platform than Arduino.

 

I believe Stan Winston school has some courses. I'll check later when I am home, I got an unlimited membership.
