That kid lived just down the hall from me in the dorms my freshman year. He was a weird kid, but kinda cool at the same time if that makes any sense. He's been working on that thing for almost two years now. Last I talked to him, which was about a month ago he was adding a little electric winch with a wheel to drive the turret, so it would have an electric turret.
