All I can think of would be electrically with someone actually controlling it, but not automatically firing by itself.

I've acctually looked into this somewhat just thinking and all.
But what i came up with was a range finder like the ones used in hunting and that would send the distance to the laptop. Then have a program that calculates the trajectory and takes into account the object is moving. And have the comp. move the turret and fire. I have no clue if this would work. Just ideas :D .

well thats parts easy i need to detect movement (with a sensor but i dont no which type to get) thewn interpert the data from the censor with i program im gonna have to make. lets say the sensor noticed move ment in the left corner, the gun would turn to the left, recheck the sensor and adjust until the movement was in the center of the censor's view, at which point the gun would fire, a simple concept yet it seems like its going to be hard to implement. the first step is finding a suitable censor, so any idea on one?

Oh, come on. Even Flash can detect targets/movement via webcam.
It's been done before: http://www.usmechatronics.com/old_page/turret.htm

You must get a cheap helicopter so you can use the servo's and motors for the main system then control it via remote control. For the targeting system you could use laser guidence.

The post on Hack A Day was about the same one I mentioned earlier.
There was a toy featured on Gizmodo a few weeks back that detected intruders and shot nails at them or something (not before an audio warning). I totally forgot what it was called, though. I guess you could adapt it to trigger an airsoft gun or something like that. Sure beats having to write your own target aquisition software.

hey i got a really dumb solution:

make a turret move with your mouse, have a non moving webcam open so you see what is going on, have a color aimbot track a specific color the target is wearing, the aimbot with track that color with your mouse cursor so the gun tracks that color too

and i believe there is one website i've been to that has the source code for such an turret, cant find it though

---edit

heres one that is actually practical

have a webcam take a picture in front of it, the gun will shoot at anything that is not in the original picture. for each pixel of the picture, get it's RGB value, and give it a range that is higher than it, and lower than it, to adjust for different brightness, and if any pixel goes out of that range, it means it's not supposed to be there and thus shoots at it, if many pixels are out of that range, find the area between the most top left to the most bottom right pixel, making a rectangular area that the gun shoots at

any programmers here that can make a program that gives you the RGB number of every pixel?

Like I was saying, you can do it in Flash: http://www.nastypixel.com/prototype/?page_id=73
The hard part is interfacing the tracker with the servos. I don't think Flash can talk to the serial port. Programming is a pain...

that flash thing rules, i dug up a old color aimbot, moded it a bit
http://www.freewebtown.com/makeagokart/tracker.zip
its almost 1mb, includs two programs, one of them is the flash and the other is the tracker

btw i didnt make any of those, i put my name in it for practice
you need to use both programs at once, when and if i do the actual motor controlling program you need 3 programs at once

this is a really really half assed way to do such a thing, i dont know how to control servos but steppers are posible
