I finaly started working on a moc Plasma Caster like the one attached to the Predators shoulder.
Here are some pictures of the first setup. I plan to make changes.The range finder you see will judge the distance from my face, if I turn my head and it goes too far away, the servo will move in the direction I moved my head to get back in its original position; hence, it will follow my head looking where I look. Tilted head position will be judged from an accelerometer and mapped to the servos as well.
Later plans include:
- Coil gun
- Strobe light from disposable camera
- Camera for Facial Recognition
- Movement detection
- Fiberglass shoulder mount
- Bluetooth and controlled via HTC
I now have my Ping))) mapping to the servo movements. It is kinda twitchy, but it is working better than I had planned. The Ping))) is going to be mounted on the shoulder mount itself, not on the servos. This is because if it was on the servos, my face could get too close and supply outrages and false data. There is no error checking it this verson of code, it is very gritty and proves concept.
