A ranch owner in Texas is setting up a Web site enabling hunters to telerobotically aim and fire a .22 rifle at animals on his ranch. From a Reuters report:
The idea came last year while viewing another Web site on which cameras posted in the wild are used to snap photos of animals.
"We were looking at a beautiful white-tail buck and my friend said 'If you just had a gun for that.' A little light bulb went off in my head," he said. Link
Of course, this system is not without precedence. In 1997, I joined Survival Research Laboratories' Mark Pauline and Eric Paulos at a Tokyo art gallery when they demonstrated a Web-based telepresence system to aim and fire their deadly Air Launcher machine at targets in San Francisco. Link
