Want to deploy an interesting Portal turret to guard your door? If you like making something by yourself, you may like to make your own 3D printed tracking Portal turret.
Dragonator, an instructables member created the amazing Portal turret using 3D printer. As shown in the images, the Portal turret replica sports exquisite details, and most importantly, the turret is controlled with an Arduino and a PC. The Arduino handles the movement and the light, while the PC processes the video from a built-in webcam in order to decide the turret needs to aim and provide realistic Portal turret sounds. Moreover, you can control the Portal turret using a joystick. That sounds freely cool? You may head to dragonator’s instructables page for detailed making steps or check out the following demo video first.
