great my rc tank project has a new turret mech then.... lol
although my idea would have less over shooting.....

Does it stop shooting when I lift my marker up? Wait. Isn't this old news already?

There is really only so much you can practically do with a single camera setup, and their software is rather impressive for something that appears to come out of a hobby team.

But their lack of target context makes it hard to use it as more than just a toy, especially for anything that shoots.

Not certain on the target context...you can upload target images for target recognition and restrictions. Not that it will stop shooting at a person.....but I am thinking change out the marker for a rocket launcher and target only tanks :)

Plus the fact that no commercial field in the country would -ever- allow something like this. Its a neat novelty.

And why are they shooting up an old Jeep CJ-3A? Do they have to do that?

Why wouldn't a field allow something like this during a scenario? As long as you have manual control to halt the fire....If marker is chrono'd then you should be good to go. Would change the game of attack and defend....give me 4 of these in a fort and I will hold off an army single handed :)
