- The laser adaptor works with any cheap DX.com laser, the current one is a 200 mW green laser but tweaked (internal potentiometer). Sketchup files are included if you need to tweak the adaptor, the hole is for the cable of the laser module.
- Print and assemble the turret. I used epoxy adhesive to assemble the servo clips on the printed pieces.
- Arduino Code (Servo handling): https://github.com/eried/LaserTurretKinect/blob/master/Arduino/LaserTurretKinect.ino
- Kinect Code (in progress, Head tracking uses the MS SDK, I am still thinking on making an auto calibration routine, i.e. finding a flashing laser dot or just a manual calibration): https://github.com/eried/LaserTurretKinect/tree/master/Binaries
