Remote Paintball Drone

STORY: For whatever reason, the paths of paintball and robotics development have tended to converge. Latest in maintaining this fine tradition is the Mega Hurtz drone you see above, designed by a chap named Chris Rogers. It features a reconfigurable weapon platform -- so yes, you can spruce it up into a modern-day ED-209 -- equipped with a night-vision camera, a thermal imaging camera, and a laser scope. The paintball gun Chris has installed on the Mega Hurtz can rip through 20 rounds each second and tilt both vertically and horizontally for more refined aiming. It comes with a remote control feeding video of what the drone sees to the user, so all you'll really need to dominate your next wargame with the Mega Hurtz will be a generous helping of ruthlessness. Video after the break.

Had some good laughs at the video, especially when it shows him smashing it around in his basement through walls, into TV's, lamps, haha.

For anybody who is curious, basically this is an RC truck with a paintball gun on top. Nothing more complicated than that.

yea but its just cool because its armored and has a camera to view what the robot views, now my question is this, do you think it can be used in scenario like a manned tank. It is still driven by a person, but only has one gun instead of multiple shooters. I'm thinking it may be ok as long as you can still disable it the same way you would with any other scenario tank.

lol not necessarily, its an interesting way to have a tank sent in like a drone, but we still need launchers to kill the SOB , nothing will ever replace real gun battles

Completely pointless. If i see one driving around I would aim to hit the camera. I am guaranteed to hit the thing.

I'm terrified of the idea that this could be used. Removing the person from the situation can cause problems.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
