One crowdfunding campaign has raised enough money to build remote-operated mounted machine guns that can be controlled with a Steam Deck, a portable gaming computer with joysticks and buttons on the sides (similar to the Nintendo Switch). They’ve given these guns to Ukrainian soldiers, who will be able to swivel the guns around and shoot while not being exposed to gunfire themselves.
