Try my webbcam tank with paintballcannon, laserdom and r

Post by magi » Sat Apr 16, 2005 2:36 am

Hello.
I have developed a system to remote control something over the
Internet at my university LTH in Lund, Sweden.<p>So I made a prototype 2 as a battle tank.
It is a model of a Stuart M5 Tank with a paintballkanon,
laserdoomweapen and red dot aim.<p>
You can look at some pictures and movies here.<p>http://www.gamereality.se/images/spegelbild.JPG<p>http://www.gamereality.se/images/spegelbild2.JPG<p>http://www.gamereality.se/images/spegelbild3.JPG<p>http://www.gamereality.se/images/frm00004.jpg<p>http://hem.passagen.se/gamereality/Klipp1.wmv <p>http://hem.passagen.se/gamereality/Klipp2.wmv <p>http://hem.passagen.se/gamereality/Klipp3.wmv<p>
Look what a guy from Australia , Sidney wrote after his testdrive....<p>http://www.roaringsnake.com/misc/article_tank.htm<p>After the drive he said he started a fan site and gave me this link:<p>http://www.roaringsnake.com/battletank/navigation.html<p>If you can read Swedish you can here read about me in one of Swedens
biggest newspapers<p>http://www.aftonbladet.se/vss/nyheter/s ... 73,00.html<p>Here is two links that makes it possible for you to see from the
camera on the tank, WITHOUT the possibility to control it. The first
in medium resolution and the last with max resolution so you can test
your equipment.<p>If it is the first time you log in on a "Axis network webcam" you will
be asked to download a activex that will stabilize the video stream.<p>Log in is: tank1test / pass<p>http://www.gamereality.se/tank1medium.htm<p>http://www.gamereality.se/tank1max.htm<p>You use:
Mouse click to fire,
Mouseweel to aim up/down<p>Keys:
w/s forward/reverse,
a/d left/right,
2/3 to turn tower left/right,
q/z right drive chain forward/reverse,e/x left drive chain forward/
reverse,
r to reload laser with 25 new rounds,
f to reset laser target for 10 hits,
c to get 3 times blast.<p>Its on batteries and they only last for one hour so you have to
contact me at the chat for a time to try it.<p>I can't have it going for you, because its quite annoying to have
strange people driving around in the house.
And to be hit in the neck by the gun is seriously painful.<p>Go to my chat and ask for a drive.<p>http://gamereality.se/Chatt/phpMyChat.php3
PS: The chat works best in Internet Explorer.<p>
When you get in contact with me I neet to know if you get a camview
from the two camlinks here. You probably need Internet Explorer.
I will then give you a controllink and password for that link.<p>Pleace read how to control it above.<p>I often have drivers that talk other languages so pleace just start to
write in the chat and I will catch up.<p>-------------------------------------------------------------------
In some years the wireless fast Internet(wimax,4G) will be possible to
use in most big cities. That will give us the possibility to place cam
robots all over the world that you can remote control over the
Internet.<p>You can be somewhere else in a minute and use arm and hands on the
robot to be able to for example go for shopping in New York and then
take a taxi to a cafe and chat with a friend. Your friend in New York
will be able to see your face on a screen on the robot.<p>You can be on a business tripp i another country and get a phone call
from your child at home where he say he has hurt himself.<p>You will then be able to connect your mobile phone to the shirt and
gloves and then connect to the cam robot at home and take care of your
child over the web.<p>I have studied Technical Physics at my university for 5 years now and
this will give people the possibility to remote control there jobs
from all over the world.<p>Companies move there factories abroad and that also move development
to other countries.
With this system people from abroad can work in your country by remote
controlling it over the Webb, so the factories stay in the country and
that means that development stay in the country.
All you have to do is send some dollars to another country as salary.
You can have a robot in the house and a Chinese can clean your house
for a day and then you can send 5 dollar to china. With the cam bot in
the house you have all the professional help you ever need in the
house in a few seconds.
You can have a plumber, doctor, electrician, firefighter and so on in
the house as fast as it takes for you to turn it on.<p>This is what will be possible in some years.<p>A lot of people have industrial works that today can be remote
controlled by a cam robot so people can globetrott all over the world
and still be at work 8 hours a day.<p>You want people to be free, right.<p>My next model will be a airplane with 3 m wingspan and paintballguns
in the wings for live air battle.
The guns I have can fire 20 shots/sek that is needed in battle fights.
A real war pilot I talked with said that in a real air battle you only
get the enemy in the scope for a moment and in that moment you have to
fire as many rounds as possible to have a chance to hit. Nice to have
a real air battle over your head with bullets flying all over and to
know that they are controlled from all over the world.......<p>Would you like to try my battle tank over the Webb?<p>http://gamereality.se/Chatt/phpMyChat.php3<p>Questions?<p>MSN / [email protected]<p>Regards Magi :D <p>[ July 31, 2005: Message edited by: magi ]<p>[ July 31, 2005: Message edited by: magi ]</p>

Cool Magi- I wonder what effect many similar sites will have on my server, however. Sort of a bandwidth hog, isn't it? :roll:

nice work! it's a little like a commeracial system we developed 2 years before, a robot that can control via internet, also equiped with several cameras, one of them a IR camera so that we can see at the night.

I have been invited to one of the worlds biggest LAN-meeting called DreamHack in Sweden.
DreamHack Summer 2005 on Elmia in Jönköping 16 - 19 juni.<p>There u can see my tank live, being controlled from all over the world. <p>I will demonstrate my "Man against Machine" arena.
People will be able to come to the arena and battle against webcamrobots in a paintball/laserdombattle.
So I will have the first Internetgame in the world where you can hunt real people on your screen.<p>Skynet is here.......... heheheheheeee<p>Regards Magi

I see the picture (and it is backwards) but none of the controls work. What's up?
