Upcoming Project Updates

We wanted to make sure that we kept you up to date on our two projects that are currently in the works.

First-Person Shooter Demo

We are working on a project that allows you to locate the position of an impact on a flat surface using triangulation with accelerometers. And as is the way with Waterloo Labs, we take this simple concept and add something awesome. In this case, there will be two somethings: an AR15 and a .22 caliber. This video will be coming next week!

Cannon Fodder

This is the project that we mentioned at the end of the fireworks video. We will be building a cannon that tracks motion and follows targets using simple USB webcams.

Currently, we are trying to make sure that we have enough amps to drive the motors that we have located for the cannon. If so, then we have a project. If not, we will need to look into lower power motors.

Be sure to let us know if you have any suggestions or project ideas!
