Let's Make Robots!

I just saw this on youtube and wondered if this is even possible?

I just saw this on youtube and wondered if this is even possible? It looks legit but somehow i cant help but feel that its not autonomous that someone is controlling it? thanks

That's actually really cool I like how it strikes when it's in range it's like playing with a robotic spider cat

Very easy to do autonomously. There is a shield for Arduino that allows you to connect a camera to it and do that.

Very easy, yeah right! I mean yeah, I can put together the parts but the code is waaaaay far from very easy. For sure this is not a beginner or intermediate coder project!

I think Nootropic has a library or two to go with their video experimentors shield that should take a lot of the work out of tracking an object.

Video Experimenter shield can only work with bright spots, black and wight image works best 

as you can see hear it's only tracking a bright spot
