How to build a Webcam Missile Launcher

Having fun

Okay, now to have fun. 

Assuming you've loaded the drivers, tested the missile launcher and webcam before you started this little adventure...you did, didn't you? 

Plug the USB cables in and then start your webcam and missile launcher applications. 

Now if anyone can come up with an API to talk directly to the Missile Launcher, we could mate it with the motion detection software I have loaded above, and have it automatically fire at anything that comes within detection range.  Nyah, ah, ah.

To see the little beasty in action, play the video below.  Don't forget to duck. 

Thank you for playing, and I challenge anyone to come up with a USB yaw and pitch camera control for less than the $39.95 I spent.
