Hi. I have built a web cam robot that you can control from any pc in the world. I have equiped it with paintball and laserdome weapons and a red dot aim. http://media.putfile.com/Tank_paintball_1 Do you think it would be interesting to have a Internet game with real webcamrobots in a paintball/laserdome battle and be able to hunt real people with the robot? -------------------- Scandinavia and north of Europe get a delay/lag around 0.3-0.5 sec. The rest of the world get a delay/lag around 1-3 sec becouse they have a satellite link. Some few people get lucky and dont get a satellite link from USA or Australia and then get a delay/lag around 0.5-1 sec. I will try to upgrade the web camera robots, so they will be able to compeate against real people on a paintball/laserdome arena/field. -------------------- If you have the time you can answer some questions here http://freeonlinesurveys.com/rendersurvey.asp?id=39391 If you havnt time just answer one of them. ------------------------------------------ Check this text that an Australian wrote after taking a drive with my tank from the other side of the world: http://www.roaringsnake.com/misc/article_tank.htm ------------------------------- This is a university work at LTH in Sweden and my nick at the university is f97miv and if you want to control it please contact my university. http://www.efd.lth.se/ ------------------------------ Regards Magi [Edited by - magi5 on September 3, 2005 10:25:29 AM]

#1) No, I dont think it would be fun to "Hunt People"
#2) Take the paintball gun off. Its people like you who get paintball taken away from people like me.
#3) Just no. Its illegal to shoot people with a paintball gun, and Im going to guess that there is a key logger and/or virus attached to your stuff.

Damn, that sounds cool. Id definately get into it, I enjoy regular paintball, and this would add a whole new perspective to it.

All in all, I think this is really cool.

I try to interest paintball fields to have some on a battle field so that the people you hunt is safe to hunt and is aware of the game.

I have had 600-700 people from all over the world controling my webcam tank and what I know I have not heard anyone say anything about virus and stuff.

This is a university work at LTH in Sweden and my nick at the university is f97miv and if you want to control it please contact my university.

I dunno about making that into a game (could be a bit expensive on the hardware and maintainment sides), but I do know that it would be damned fun to control a tank from halfway around the world [grin] Hunting people sounds like a big no-no, but as for hunting other robots, that might fly.
