    N8 is just trolling.

    A basic vision system may not have been used for shooting people but are used in industrial robotic applications all the time.

    The same set up could be used to guide a large gun and placed in the flight path near a major airport to shoot down airplanes.

    a gun that you can build and it automatically tracks a target and shoots them...if I scanned it correctly while wasting that 30 secs of my life i'll never get back.

    Yes, but the software is key. The gun is interchangeable... :)
