Luckily, the Nerf Vulcan already operates using an electric motor, so controlling the actual firing mechanism through a computer was just a matter of connecting it directly to an Arduino Uno and a laptop
According to the designer, the sentry is extremely accurate and will even anticipate where a target is moving to catch up with them
The Nerf Vulcan Sentry Gun automatically locates targets and unleashes a stream of foam darts at over seven times the usual speed
As a added feature though, the gun can be programmed to cease fire when it registers a particular symbol
Anyone who plays video games will know that few things protect an area like a well-placed sentry gun. In the real world, though, even a person's bedroom or office could use a little protection sometimes, which is why one designer has built the Nerf Vulcan Sentry Gun. Using a custom program and some servos, the sentry can automatically locate targets and unleash a stream of foam darts at over seven times the usual speed, while keeping its owner out of the crosshairs.
