Remember the sentry guns in the Aliens movie? An engineer built his own for paintballing.

That's pretty impressive. He must have read his Zarchan. His low income....with his knowledge he should be employed by Lockheed or such. His machine vision skills alone would easily land him a top paying job. Even if he 'stole' all the code and used simple control mechanisms, it still takes a lot of fundamental knowledge to make it all work.

That is very cool. Only thing I'd change is the victim. The inventor should have "people" for that.
