3D Printed Moving and Tracking Portal Turret is Full of Win
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Got a 3D printer and a few basic electronic components at your disposal? Then good news, you too can build your own motion tracking Portal gun turret, and lets be honest, why wouldn’t you want to do this!
Using 3D printed body panels, an Arduino for the movement and light, and a PC to process video from the built in webcam which decides not only where the turret needs to aim, but also the sound effects.
Without a PC connected, the turret because remote controlled, allowing you to use a joy stick and aim it manually. I wish I had the skills to do something similar, perhaps even equip it with a Nerf gun for maximum effect.
