[Sticky] Laser pointer / camera / webcam remote control robot
This 3D printed laser/torch/camera pointer has been created using common and affordable elements from the 3D printed World (NEMA 17 motors, Linear bearings, timing belts…)
The idea was to create a reliable, fast, modifiable and accurate “pointer” robot. Fix to this robot a small camera, webcam, flashlight, sensor… and control it remotely. The Python code will let you move the robot, autonomously, following pre-set movement patterns with precision.
Convert it into a remotely operated webcam:
Control it using a Xbox/ PS4 controller:
The control APP has been created with Python
Take a look at it: Laser pointer 3D interactive model
We have written a detailed assembly guide.
The control code has been written in PYTHON, and it has been thoroughly explained and commented for easy understanding. There are several control examples here
NEW!: Added Xbox/PS4 controller. Now you can control the laser pointer robot using your PS4/Xbox controller
