This Face Recognition NERF Blaster Identifies Target Before Shooting

While most grown ups continue to enjoy NERF toys as they are, some took it to the next level with mods. Mods are cool which makes the whole NERF experience a little more, how do you say? Intimate? Something like that. I did some myself to a good’ol Maverick Rev-6, but they are just basics. In fact, many mods are because there’s really this much you can do with a stock NERF blaster. But leave it to the geeks and you will see some pretty dope high-tech mods like the NERF Vulcan Sentry Gun some years ago. Sentry, as the name suggests, is a NERF robotic guard that protects your fort autonomously. It was good and all, except that it could not differentiate between friends from foes. The Raspberry Pi-powered NERF Blaster you see here, however, can. Continue reading This Face Recognition NERF Blaster Identifies Target Before Shooting

Mandalorian Edition NERF Blaster Is A Pricey Way Of Battling As Boba Fett

Now, this is something that should have been done for a long time, but I guess it is better late than never. What you got here is a NERF Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster-inspired by the intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett, specifically, from the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront II video game. Produced by U.S. video game chain, GameStop, this special edition NERF blaster comes draped in the colors of the infamous mercenary’s armor and with appropriate ‘worn’ effects that makes the otherwise run-of-the-mill NERF Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster look strikingly different and if I may say so, a little more attractive. At least it is over the stock pinkish red and blue variety. Continue reading Mandalorian Edition NERF Blaster Is A Pricey Way Of Battling As Boba Fett

Adam Savage’s Custom NERF Rifle Is Full Of Sci-Fi Awesomeness

NERF blasters were never mean to look like real-life firearms, simply because they are toys. Despite so, they do have a sci-fi-ish asesthetic to them which makes them kind of realistic, well, in a sci-fi way. Unfortunately, this sci-fi kind of realistic look is marred by the bright colorways designed to lure kids and also, as per regulation, to prevent them from looking like real weapons (remember, even Airsoft has orange tip to mark them as toys). But that’s stock NERF we are talking about and beyond the shelves, there’s no stopping folks like Adam Savage from lending their magical touch to turn a stock NERF rifle into one that’s worthy of a sci-fi movie prop. Continue reading Adam Savage’s Custom NERF Rifle Is Full Of Sci-Fi Awesomeness

NERF’s New Blasters Include An Anime-ish, Monstrous 30-Foam Dart Shooter

By now, we should be accustomed to NERF’s relentless pursuit to outdo itself. That said, it is no surprise that a 100-foam ball blaster and foam car-shooting blaster aren’t enough, cos’ the Hasbro brand is churning out more delightful blasters which the company will showcase at the upcoming New York Toy Fair, happening from February 18-21. One of the three notable blasters that will be unveiled is a jaw-dropping, monstrous (and somewhat anime-ish) blaster called The Judge. We are not sure if it is the judge, but with the fire power it has, it sure is an executioner. Continue reading NERF’s New Blasters Include An Anime-ish, Monstrous 30-Foam Dart Shooter

NERF Rival Nemesis MXVII-10k Made Unlimited Firing A Possibility

You know the key to winning a NERF battle? Firepower. But shit load of firepower won’t be enough – you need a blaster that has unlimited ammunition, like, you know, one that fires forever. Of course, we all know that’s a fantasy, a Hollywood kind of thing, or a possibility only if you enter cheat code in a game. So for now, as far as real flesh-and-blood foam ammunition battle is concern, the NERF Rival Nemesis MXVII-10k Foam Ball Blaster you see here is as close as you can get in getting an upper hand in a NERF shoot out. Continue reading NERF Rival Nemesis MXVII-10k Made Unlimited Firing A Possibility

Hasbro Takes On Hot Wheels With Foam Car-shooting NERF Nitro Blasters

I am sure we are all quite familiar what NERF has to offer. This Hasbro’s line of blasters shoots foam darts, isn’t it? Well, about that, it is not quite true anymore because NERF’s diversification has lead to it shooting, wait for it… foam cars. Yes. Yes. NERF’s new line of blasters that is slated to hit the shelves worldwide in summer 2017 doesn’t shoot foam darts or balls. Instead it will spit out foam cars and thereby pulling a Hot Wheels kind of toy line but without the fancy, roller coast-style tracks. Hard to imagine? Well, it is really not hard to imagine. Just think of it as a Hot Wheels launch-able car, less the track and has the launcher in the likeness of a NERF foam blaster. Get it? Continue reading Hasbro Takes On Hot Wheels With Foam Car-shooting NERF Nitro Blasters

Functional NERF Blaster Made Out Of LEGO Is Absolutely Awesome

There’s no arguing that the world’s famous bricks, AKA LEGO, spur creativity like no other. Heck, even grown ups find these plastic bricks a blast to tinkle with outside of official sets. Speaking blast, YouTube channel Astonishing Studios’ has created a LEGO replica of Hasbro’s NERF Maverick REV-6 foam dart blaster which is yet another testimony of LEGO’s versatility. The most impressive part about Astonishing Studios’ LEGO NERF Gun is, beyond striking resemblance to the original NERF foam dart shooter, it actually works.

Meet Mastodon, The Biggest Foam Dart-shooting NERF Blaster Ever

No. Mastodon is not a relative to the prehistoric shark, Megalodon. In fact, it is not even remotely related to any living things, ancient or not, much less to a shark. It is NERF’s biggest foam dart-shooting blaster to date, though technically, it is not the biggest NERF gun cos’ we already saw how big the biggest NERF Blaster was. But it is true that Mastodon is the biggest factory-produced blaster in NERF arsenal to date, stretching a nearly 3-feet (86 cm) long and weighing in as much as a laptop at 7.3 lbs (3.3 kg). Not only it is the biggest NERF blaster yet, but it is also the first motorized NERF Mega blaster, boasting a rotary magazine and powered by a motor that enables it to spit out 24 foam darts 100 feet (about 30 meters) downrange in under 20 seconds.

Guy Reimagined NERF Vulcan Into A Fast Foam Dart-spitting Gatling Gun

Office warfare is a thing. Though we are not sure if it still is since the resurrection of Pokémon. Assuming it still is, the obvious ‘weapon’ of choice would be NERF and with NERF, firepower is everything. That said, if you find yourself losing every single time, then perhaps you are not putting enough foam darts downrange, which means your foam dart-spitting firearm is in dire need of a serious upgrade, such as, for example, turning a run-of-the-mill NERF Vulcan into a Gatling Gun. Yep. A Gatling Gun otherwise known as a minigun and why not? Continue reading Guy Reimagined NERF Vulcan Into A Fast Foam Dart-spitting Gatling Gun

Former NASA Engineer Built The World’s Biggest NERF Gun

Forget what Hasbro tells you about which of its Nerf gun is the most powerful, because there’s a new king of Nerf in town and it wins by sheer size, and by sheer size, we do mean really, really BIG. The Nerf gun in the spotlight is created by former NASA engineer and YouTuber Mark Rober with the help of fellow YouTubers over at Eclectical Engineering and it takes on the shape inspired by the classic Maverick REV-6 single-fire revolver dart blaster. Naturally, the ginormous REV-6 also gets an identical colorway, consisting of yellow, black, grey and orange, to look the part. The world’s largest Nerf gun proclamation is not official; i mean who keep tracks of that, right? But looking at the size, we have little doubt there are any bigger ones out there.
