…is completely impractical.
In my last post, I briefly described a simple hack which allowed the Gadgeteer system to control the bearing and azimuth of an old USB missile launcher by using a joystick. Manual control like this is all very well, but it would be much more entertaining if the systems could track a target automatically before raining down atomic retribution on it. I use the words ‘would be’ advisedly, because as we shall see this is fairly impractical with the Gadgeteer kit I have to hand. Even so, there’s a lot to be learned from the process of trying.
