Gun Simulator Might Be A Big Gaming Hit
Guns are a potentially explosive topic over in the U.S., especially when it comes to the right to own one. Well, it looks set to remain as a divisive factor for the masses, but right now, a couple of American technology entrepreneurs have already come up with a gun simulator for the military which could eventually trickle down to see action among the masses by being a hit in video […]

3D Printed Guns Go Full Metal
3D printers can be quite a menace if one were to make use of it the wrong way, and one of the ways would be to print out parts of a gun and assembling them together. We did hear of a Liberator pistol that was smuggled into the Israeli parliament sometime in the middle of this year, and then there was also the Grizzly which is a 3D-printed rifle. This […]

US Navy fires laser gun from ship for the first time
The US Navy recently took a major leap forward in terms of weapon technology recently. They mounted a solid-state laser called the Maritime Laser Demonstrator aboard a decommissioned destroyer, the USS Paul Foster.

Tupperware Turret fires an Airsoft pistol
Who would’ve thought that a Tupperware could be turned into something so fearsome? A hobbyist named Chris from PyroElectro recently modified a Tupperware container with a PIC microcontroller, servo, IR receiver, and a sawed-off Airsoft pistol to create a fearsome Tupperware Turret Airsoft Gun.

Nerf Gun, mouse, Kinect combined together to play House of the Dead
In one of the more creative mods we’ve seen recently, a hobbyist named Tony Blanch built his own motion controller for playing House of the Dead on the computer. He took apart a Nerf gun and added a circuit board that was ripped out of a 5 button wireless mouse. He then set up a Microsoft Kinect to recognize the gun moving and to translate that movement into the mouse […]

FPS-style ammo counter finds home on automatic weapon
Do you still remember Sarge’s ammo counter in the Quake III intro? Having heard the beep of his machine gun to signify that he’s out of bullets, he decided to go out in glory by jumping straight into a bunch of stooges, only to be transported into the arena where he battles with other “gladiatiors”. Well, a somewhat similar ammo counter is now available for automatic weapons, although this is […]

Armatix gun-watch symbiotic relationship
Woe to James Bond if he ever gets in a tight situation while using Armatix’s latest combo – a wristwatch and a gun, where the $10,000-priced firearm won’t be able to fire without the watch being nearby. In fact, the gun remains disarmed with a red LED lighting up unless the watch is close enough to submit a wireless signal. What are some of the practical aspects of this strange […]

XCM PS3 Light Gun
XCM has come up with a prototype light gun for the PS3, which is fine and dandy, the only problem is that it looks a bit like a Frankenstein of video game controllers, combining half a Playstation controller with a gun.

Are you paranoid of being tracked by RFID tags in your possessions? You probably won’t want to carry something like the RFID Zapper around, but it can certainly help you kill an RFID tag or two. Basically what this threatening-looking device does is send a very strong electromagnetic field through the RFID tag, causing it to burn out. As can be seen from this video, it’ll work on passports with […]
