Baby Turret



This grotesque piece of machinery was created with Thom Hines for our Physical Computing class at Parsons The New School for Design. It uses an Arduino microprocessor, three servos, a discarded baby doll, and the computer's camera to identify nearby faces, aim a rubber band gun and attempt to shoot them in the eye.


When a face can be seen, the baby head will turn to look at them. If the person remains there for more than a few seconds, the gun will also turn to face them before slowly cocking back and eventually firing a rubber band. The gun can fire three shots before needing to be reloaded.
