Paintball turret gun

Jared Bouck, of Inventgeek, is at it again. He’s just posted details of a paintball turret gun that’s been in the works for several years:

This paintball turret system has the ability to be configured as a wired or wireless platform and we have even built it in a way to be portable for rapid backpack style deployments controlled with heads up displays up to a half mile away with a firing rate of up to 34 balls per second.

As usually, he does a very good job of documenting the build and promises video docs and even a dedicated website where they’ll be updating the project. They’re even thinking about selling kits.
