New Instructable – Auto Turret with Pixy and Nerf Gun

Autoturret with pixy and nerf gun
We have a new project that we’re excited for you to try! With the Auto-Turret Project, you can automatically track down and fire upon your enemies! This project utilizes a Pixy camera module, a RobotGeek pan/tilt base, a foam dart gun, and a Geekduino to coordinate the components. The Pixy can be ‘taught’ to recognize different colors, and when it ‘sees’ an object with the matched color, it will send data to the Geekduino. The Geekduino will then move the pan and tilt servos so that the object is in the center of the Pixy’s field of view. If the object stays still for too long, the foam dart gun will engage, firing a dart at the object!
