I thought I was going to see a fully automated cannon :(

It has to be manually muzzle loaded so the automated bit is the fueling.

The tilting and rotating platform is good. It would be nice if the speed could be increased though.

I still think loading the projectiles is one of the hardest parts of a semi-automatic or automatic gun. I still think their gun is amazing.

Jesus, talk about overkill!
Still neat though... just a little on the complex side for something so simple.

This is the stuff we did in my highschool engineering class.Only we didn't go so complicated.It is fairly easy to control stuff off a computer I don't know why the guys didn't just computer control it.Well, next on my project list,build a computer controlled spudgun and make it load itself :twisted:

They need to clean the wiring up a bit, it looks like a cat started playing with the wires.
