Hitting a target with a gun or bow and arrow can be very difficult, especially if it’s your first time doing it. But youtuber Shane Wighton of Stuff Made Here (who also made the robot to cut his hair). He’s a youtuber and he decided to make a original Aimbot bows and arrows. By constructing a bow and arrow arrangement that can strike its target virtually all the time. Even if you’re a total beginner at bow and arrows.
To make this possible, Whiteon a youtuber makes original aimbot and for this he had to install a series of OptiTrack motion cameras in his workshop, attach sensors to his nose and targets. And write personalized software that essentially translates what the camera sees. He also had to create a curved platform that automatically adjusts to compensate for any movement by the user that might reject the target.
The end result is a rather bulky, heavy platform that the Steadicam has to serve. A device that cinematographers typically carry that allows them to hold heavy camera setups while providing stable footage. The end result is pretty cool. It may not be as elegant as we’d like or imagine, but since it’s a do-it-yourself process, it’s impressive.
Whiton notes that this setup has a few downsides, namely that it doesn’t work well for more advanced purposes. But he’s working on a newer version that we can’t wait to see.
