    The possibilities are endless. I can see one in my yard to keep the neighbors' critters from dropping and burying dueces all over the place.

    Kid should call up the military. Bet they've got more than enough uses for something like that!

    WOW! You put a few of those around the house and add some OC balls to it, you could have a serious defense system there. Of course, against the law to set up booby traps, but hey, looks like fun.

    Agreed.

    Fun to watch, probably not so fun to participate.

    I am impressed. If all of that was truly designed/built by that kid he has a pretty bright future ahead of him.

    This would be handy for the military, but it definitely will never see the civilian market.

    How very sci-fi. They had a couple of automatic sentries in the movie Aliens.

    I think the military has stuff like this already, like the phalynx on ships, used for air defense artillery. Still, it's pretty wicked. I think the only civilian market would be for paintball games and possibly keeping critters out of your yard.

    It reminds me of video games like Splinter Cell. I swear a few of those things, in the game were almost impossible to get around.

    I would buy one in a heartbeat, if the kid sells them for a reasonable price. I guess he is working on a version that has a built-in processor, so you don't need to have a computer hooked up to it.

    I wonder what the air source he is using is?

    Thats awesome. I wonder what he used to program that with? Motion sensor and a range finder? I imagine the code for that wouldn't be all too hard to manage. It looks like he added a laser for dramatic effect.

    I might have to look into it.
