Office Space Invaders — Remote Controlled Airsoft Gun

Every time we check in on Jay of thecapacity, he is mashing up more technologies to wreak havoc on his co-workers, friends, and/or wife. This time Jay has created a remote controlled Airsoft Gun that is sighted using an IP camera and controlled using the feedback from a Wiimote — all from his Internet web application. A harness supports the gun which allows the gun to aim using a servo. The trigger is also servo controlled and linked to the trigger of the Wiimote. The ioBridge allows Jay to be anywhere in the world to reign terror on unsuspecting victims. On thecapacity blog, you can find some cool YouTube videos of the making of the system and see him take down some space invaders.

Remote Dog Feeder with iPhone

The inventor known only as “hacklife” created an iPhone-controlled dog feeder. He converted some household parts into a stable, servo-controlled food dispenser. At the heart of the system is the IO-204 from ioBridge that allows the iPhone to direct servo positions over the Internet with no programming involved. His YouTube video, ioBridge Forum post, and MAKE post explain the system in more detail. Well done, hacklife.
