    newest video for anyone interested in this kindof shit.

    i need a better airsoft gun. the one i use is some pathetic 80fps walmart POS so the bb's just bounce off the plane. i mounted the piantball gun for it to use on the heli though (in the first part of the vid) and it blew it to pieces

    the cops came the day i made the video and told me the mexican next door was pissed because he was able to fill a large jar with all the bb's that had missed the plane and fell in his back yard. :rofl: i think he's afraid his goat or whatever random shit he's got back there will eat them.

    Dood that shit's awesome.

    You could solve the 2-d vision problem by requiring a certain minimum crossing rate in degrees/sec and then using estimated target velocity & known projectile velocity only fire at stuff that's "in range," see? 'Course, then you'd always have beam shots and no nose/tail shots.




    :rofl: This has to be so close to illegal. :rofl:

    :rofl: That's hysterical!
    Seriously, has anyone from the DoD contacted you?

    Edit: Okay, so I'm reading your updates at the website and you say you can switch from color to grayscale motion detection. So are you saying you can tell it to shoot at only things which are red and moving? Etc. What sort of discrimination parameters can you put in there? What about shapes? Only shoot helicopters? (For example.) Just curious. This thing is cool as hell.

    Edit2: Okay, so it can discriminate blue/red. That's pretty cool. How about less-contrasty colors? Say, yellow and orange?

    Seriously, that's one of the coolest things I've seen in forever. Perfect for keeping the neighbor's cat and kids out of my yard. I guess theoretically, if the mount and motors were strong enough, you could set it up with an actual firearm. Seeing a belt-fed machine gun with that type of automation would be badass. You wouldn't catch me going downrange to change targets, though.

    no but contractors have

    yep
    you can adjust the intensity and broadness of the particular color. color targeting works best in a sunny field. it's best for team games

    no
    nope, it shoots everything

    there would be too many false targets. it's more complicated than it appears.

    what do you use to obfuscate your code? it looks like i'm going to have to buy Dotfuscator before i sell them.
    it fuckin sucks cause i can't really afford it.

    :cool:

    Oh, I'm sure it's incredibly complex, I was just curious *how* much discrimination the user could enter. What you have is friggin' sweet, don't get me wrong. :coold:

    If I could imagine two areas for improvement, you could sell this system for megabucks:

    A) Shape discrimination
    Level 1) Fighter jet vs helicopter vs transport acft vs tank vs truck vs human
    Level 2) F-16 vs SU-27 vs C-5 vs An-27...etc
    B) (Part of (A)) - automatic zoom in the camera to help discriminate

    So for example the system detects motion, centers the bogey, and zooms in to confirm target ID based on preloaded parameters, then waits for the target to be in range and opens fire.

    If you could feed in discriminators for shapes then the system would automatically know if something was in range by the angular size of the target. For example, a target that looks like an F-16 is approx 50' x 30' so if it subtends X pixels then it is Y feet away and therefore not in range yet, etc.

    If a target looks like a person and subtends X pixels then it is Y feet away and therefore IN range.

    But yes, I realize that's adding tremendous complexity to the code. :o

    you should be able to install it on a VM and "reuse it" :mamoru:
