That's not correct. The other videos prove it easily tracks and engages multiple targets. Here's one example YouTube - ‪Multiple Target Engagement (video 11 of 18)‬‏ It even has different modes for handling multiple targets. I beleive the modes are: Biggest, fastest, rotate through all targets at a certain interval, & only engage approaching targets.

nope. The camera being able to move has nothing at all to do with range. The range on these things depends on the camera's resolution and field of view. It can easily have a greater detection range than the range of a paintball gun.

He meant side to side, as in you can easily flank a turret if it can't 'look' left or right.



I think you could make some really fun toys with things like this. Picture one or two of these at one end of a field that has a pile of small cover, then teams race the clock to score points/not get hit. (Team with their flag carried to the most stations around the field, team that advanced the most, team that disables the unit by 'blinding' its quarter sized webcam port.)

Or how about a pair of them mounted on remote controlled tracked robots. Human rebels evading the cybernetic overlords anyone? Last man alive wins?


As long as they're used in a safe manner they could be fun.

I haven't seen any other videos, sounds like they have thought of that.

If it works on motion sensing, I wonder how it knows your approaching, if you advanced on it slowly maybe it couldn't tell. ( guess I'll have to watch more of the videos

Yes i was referring to arc of vision and flanking, thanks luckless.

Also if it doesn't measure distance, and doesn't lob shots to compensate it could see me at say 100+ft, but the balls would fall short, I could lob shots onto it with impunity.
