Turret Project: 2 servos + PIR + Turret
First step will be to make the mount, then I will start messing with some PIR sensors. I will probably just write a simple motion program to check out the range of motion. This will become the start up routine.
If anything, this will show me if it is going to look cool or not.
With some quick solid modeling, I got the feeling it will make a decent looking paper weight :)
EDIT: After some thought and research, I am thinking that the PIR is not the route to go, and the easier method would be to use some IR Leds instead...we'll see. The possibility of using an off-the-shelf sensor still exists :D
