Excellent Play Station-Controlled Tank Courtesy of Some Syrian Rebels [Video]
Now, since they couldn`t get their hands on a remote-controlled tank, they improvised and made their own, out of bits you could get from the scrapheap, and buy off the shelf. Well, it can’t really be called a tank, but it is a self-propelled turret, with armor plating, so it can`t really be placed in one specific category.
What’s most interesting about it is the way in which it is operated: the turret features a camera, which sends the image to a widescreen TV placed inside. It is controlled via a Play Station controller. It is not clear if the gaming controller is also used for the movement of the vehicle, but even as a the control method for the turret itself, we must admit it is very clever, ingenious, and dare we say it, modern.
The only question we have: Does the controller vibrate when firing the gun?
