new video tracking device

Was just sent this link - self flying tracking quadcopter with video!

Very nice, thanks for sharing the link.
A bit late for Christmas, OTOH only 12 months till Christmas :wink:

damn those things always seem very interesting to me . i did work on something like that before though , i used OPEN-CV with a smart device with an operating system (like a RPI) , and you can get the code to detect objects and colors and do some vectoring in space but i am not still able to get that to be as reliable as what the video shows .. you can use some math and calculations and send serial data to an Arduino to drive the motors and get the thing moving according to what it records from the video .. but to get it to be as reliable as that ... damn
