Paintball Robot Project by Chris Rogers

Chris Rogers, from Louisville, CO is embarking on an ambitious project to create a all terrain, wireless, paintball robot. He is currently in the fundraising stage but the prototype he has designed is awesome. Check out the video.

I want to make a tracked robot with a paintball gun. The robot and gun will be controllable from a distance. The gun will have elevation- the ability to tilt up and down. The tracked base should be able to rotate in place and climb stairs. By rotating in place I should have the inherent ability to pan- rotate the gun horizontally without adding a separate, expensive and heavy pan mechanism. I want to make something light enough so that one person can carry it.
