defcon day 2 – hamster ball

ball

This ball was being shown from DC*480. It’s a remote control ball that has a camera and processor. It can throw itself anywhere and only took the team 3 days to build…with 6 months of planning of course. I got a turn to try it out and you rotate the X and Y axis to make it move. It takes random screenshots too of what it sees. I love it. Great project.

    das hot.

  2. What would be cooler is if they hooked it up to a powerbook with the tilt sensors. I’m drooling just thinking about it.

    I built one of those a few months back. It’s a beast to control. I’ll post a write up + pictures about it someone on my site, gorobotics.net.
