A friend recently sent me a link about what has got to be the ultimate air cannon robot, and I just had to post about it!
Check out "Air Cannon Looking for Targets (Video)" from ROBOTS DREAMS!
The robot was produced by Vex Robotics, and this thing is just freaking awesome! Once you view the video in the article showing all the mechanical aspects of the robot then move on to the videos of this thing shooting. Here's a picture of the cannon from the article:
This has got to be the ultimate in cubicle warfare, but you wouldn't dare use it would you :)
This is definitely inspiration for me to get moving with my little NXT robot project, and then move on to bigger and better robotics projects. I'll definitely checking out both ROBOTS DREAMS, and Vex Robotics for lots of ideas and more great articles ~ Jim
