This isn't your ordinary office toy! Turret430 is a versatile missile launcher with manual and automatic targeting modes. Choose between using a joystick to pinpoint your target or use our software to set turret430 to track a target on its own.
The goal was to design and build an office missile launcher that could be controlled by an analog joystick. As an added bonus, auto-mode was developed to target and track an object based on color. By the push of a button, the turret430 becomes completely autonomous and defends a cubicle without the need of supervision.
