           In the last few years, many different forms of DIY sentry guns and turrets made from paintball, airsoft and traditional BB guns have shown up across the web. With the current state of hobbyists electronics it is actually very easy to build your own turret or sentry gun.
           With these thoughts in mind, I set out to build my own turret that I'll be able to use against my enemies. Airsoft style. The only burden I will place on myself while building this awesome airsoft turret is that the design involve as few steps as possible from beginning to end, making it reasonably simple for anyone to reproduce.

Purpose & Overview of this project
           The purpose of this project is to have some fun by using our previous knowledge from the Servo Motor Control tutorial to make a type of pan and tilt system to move the tupperware turret and also to use the information from the Infrared IR Receiver tutorial to create a system that is remotely controlled.
           The Tupperware Turret Airsoft Gun should be able to rotate upto 180° or more left and right, be able to tilt the barrel up to 45° towards the sky and it should be able to be controlled by a generic TV remote control, IR based system.
