You’re supposed to spend at least part of your day at work doing actual work, but those rare times of productivity leave you vulnerable to surprise attacks from Nerf blaster-toting co-workers. Not if you build this robotic camera-equipped sentry turret to watch your back.
Back in early 2014, Nerf introduced its first blaster with an integrated video camera—the N-Strike Elite Cam ECS-12 Blaster—for recording your attacks on unsuspecting victims. Two years later we now have a follow-up with the N-Strike Modulus Battlescout ICS-10 that finally makes the camera removable.
When the zombie apocalypse finally hits, blasters alone won’t be enough to keep the brain-hungry hordes at bay. So with its new Zombie Strike Brainsaw Blaster, Nerf has managed to incorporate a working chainsaw with a kid-safe foam blade.
Announced just before the New York Toy Fair last year, Nerf’s Rival blasters, which launched tiny foam balls at speeds of up to 70 miles per hour, were the biggest innovation in foam warfare in years. And this year Nerf is expanding the Rival line in the best way possible.
Watching YouTube celebrity ‘engineerguy’—aka Bill Hammack—explain the engineering behind a gadget is far more entertaining than college ever was. And this time even moreso because he breaks down the simple but clever design that allows a Nerf blaster to fire one dart at a time.
The folks over at Insignificant Fish Industries run a popular Etsy shop selling geeky merchandise like glowing arcade coin slot belt buckles. But they also just teased this wonderful Han Solo blaster flask on their website that is sure to make them overnight millionaires if they ever start selling it.
As a kid, I strapped a Nerf gun to my bicycle so I could dive bomb the neighborhood kids, while traveling—I imagined—at five times the speed of sound. As an adult, I’ve carried a foam-firing blaster to no fewer than three jobs. But a funny thing happened last year: I realized my old guns weren’t any good anymore.
This is ridiculous. Nobody needs this much Nerf gun. But the nice thing about Nerf’s new Modulus blaster is you get to pick just how much you want.
Back in February, I got unreasonably excited about a dart gun: the BOOMco Spinsanity 3X. Firing 30 rounds of flying rubber up to 70 feet away, it looked like it could beat Nerf at its own game.
Yes, that’s right—this is a working Halo Needler. It shoots amazing darts that magically stick to targets, just like in the game. (No, they don’t explode.) It’s part of an entire line of new Halo dart guns produced by BOOMco. And I just tried them all.
“It’s Nerf or nothing.” Remember that phrase? It’s no longer true. Now, it’s either Nerf or this giant honking Sylvester Stallone-in-Rambo machine gun that rains down 72 rounds of flying rubber. Behold: the BOOMco Colossal Blitz.
You’ve never shot a Nerf gun like this before. And you should.
When foam balls are whizzing past your head at 70 miles per hour, the last thing you want is to run out of ammo. So for its new Rival line, not only did Nerf redesign its foam ammunition, it also redesigned how you reload the magazines so it’s now much, much faster.
First revealed before Toy Fair 2015 earlier this year, we’re finally starting to get glimpses of Nerf’s new Rival line in action. Designed to keep older kids interested in the toys, the new blasters fire small foam balls at your opponents at speeds of up to 70 MPH, but without the pain and bruises that are common with…
It looks like Nerf is the latest brand to find it hard to keep its Comic-Con reveals a secret. Yesterday it announced a pair of blasters from a new Doomlands line featuring clear plastic housings that make their firing mechanisms visible so you’ll finally know exactly how those darts get launched.
When the Colt revolver was introduced it made the antiquated musket instantly obsolete because it could quickly fire six shots in a row without having to reload. So you can think of BOOMco’s new Dynamag as kind of like the Colt revolver of the dart blaster world because it uses BOOMco’s clever clip system to allow you…
