Waterloo labs is at it again with another creative project that merges LabVIEW, NI hardware and the maker mind-set. How about standing in front of 3 paintball guns as they automatically “draw” an outline of you? How about if the software controlling them was written by an NI intern? It turns out, this system is pretty smart and fun. Check out the video below and then listen to the interview above I gave with Hunter Smith who mentored several members of Waterloo Labs throughout this project.
In the interview we discuss in detail the hardware and software used and developed. Hunter also talks to some of the challenges encountered.
