Cannon with camera for remote control

Following on from my wifi car with camera I thought I’d try to modify the Sri Shooter with a camera feed too. I’d been playing around with PiCamera, an excellent Python module andit looked like this should make it easy to integrate a video feed into a Pygame control windows. It worked!

The BrickPi Remote Sentry cannon enables the pilot to aim and fire the cannon via a network connection (using VNC).

Wow, that’s awesome, thanks for sharing! Do you have any video of this in operation? Very cool use of the camera!

If you scroll down my tumblr there’s a movie embedded there. Or go straight to youtube to see it.
