Zippo lighter with a built-in gun inside

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on July 25th, 2011

If you light your smoke with this Zippo you are likely to get a mini bullet in the face. This Zippo is packing a miniature gun inside that actually fires. Those copper-cased 6mm cartridges will be fired out of a barrel, in place of the usual wick.

Just roll the flint striking wheel and it acts as the trigger. Too bad this isn’t an official Zippo product, then again, if it was, there would be a lot of smokers shooting themselves in the face.

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Reuben Drake on June 23rd, 2011

We have plenty of gun accessories for the Wii or Move wands, I guess it’s only fitting that we also have a rifle-like dock for the iPhone. The appBlaster from apptoyz is designed specifically for the company’s Alien Attack iOS game.

Just slide in your iDevice and you will be able to see the invisible aliens and mow them down. When you pull the trigger, two capacitive pads touch the screen to fire. The appBlaster is available for pre-order right now for about $32) and will arrive on July 7.

Nerf Dart Tag Swarmfire

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on February 14th, 2011

You have to relieve stress in the office right? What better way then with a gun? A nerf gun of course. The Nerf Dart Tag Swarmfire shoots up to 20 darts in rapid succession at your co-workers or anyone else it happens to be pointed at.

It’s a bit heavier than usual, for stability, and it requires half a dozen “C” batteries instead of the AA’s which add to the weight. Get ready to unleash some intense Nerf fury on your unsuspecting victims. I know you can’t wait for this one.

Blaze PS3 Move Gun attachment

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2011

Guns are fun to use with your favorite shooter game, but not when they are capped with a glowing ball. You will look silly more than tough while wielding this baby. It’s like somebody put chewing gum in the chamber and it blew a bubble.

This alternative to the $20 Sony PS3 Move gun attachment comes from Blaze and will cost you £9.99 (about $16) when it ships at the end of February, not to mention your dignity.

PS Move SMG rifle accessory

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on October 7th, 2010

When Sony announced its PlayStation Move it also announced some accessories at the same time. Like a charging stand and even a light gun attachment. You have to catch up with those third parties who make cheap plastic Wii accessories after all.

And now CTA Digital has a submachine gun peripheral called simply “Submachine Gun.” Just clip your Move baton up front, slide the nunchuck part in the grip, and shoot away. Both the stock and scope are removable.

125-piece metal puzzle can be put together to make a working gun

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on July 29th, 2010

Puzzles can be fun. They can be frustrating. They can flex your brain muscles. And now they can be deadly. This might look like a simple 3D metal puzzle, but it holds a deadly secret: if you put some of its pieces together in the proper way, it will turn into a real working gun.

That’s right. If you take about 20 of the pieces in this 125-piece puzzle and put them together in the right way, you will have a fully-functional .45 caliber handgun with a single shot. We can only assume that this would be great for assassins.

Projector gets strapped to a Wii-gun

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on May 13th, 2010

Man, try not to get sick watching the video below. This projector strapped to a Wii-gun is pretty damn cool. It comes from Nirav Patel, who decided to take first-person shooting to the next level. He has combined a Wiimote Zapper, a handheld ShowWX laser projector and a gyrometer to display a screen wherever the Zapper is pointing.

Patel calls it a “glasses-free virtual reality first-person shooter,”. With it, he can look around and navigate the game-world just by moving the Zapper and using its joystick. Right now the game is running off of Patel’s laptop, with his controller tethered to it. Oh and he’s wearing the laptop on his back. I would love to see where else he can take this.

G-mate Gun Overlord wireless gaming gun

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on April 18th, 2010

This thing looks like a gun straight out of Tron, but you won’t find it in that world. It exists in ours. The G-mate Gun Overlord magnetic dynamic gun is supposed to be much more sensitive than its competitors. All you have to do is plug the wireless receiver into a USB port. You don’t need to install drivers. The G-Mate will move the control cursor freely just like a standard computer mouse.

It works with any new FPS game and has a range of about 10 meters, using 2.4GHz wireless technology to prevent signal delay.

The Swiss Army Knife of Steampunk guns

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2010

Looking for some multi-function in your Steampunk gun? Then this one is for you? It’s basically a Steampunk Swiss-Army Knife. This steampunk metapen gun is almost as small as the world’s smallest gun as well. It’s made from all the usual materials, brass ,copper, wood and steel.

And it does more than just shoot Victorian-clad villains dead. There’s a fork, knife, spoon, lighter, USB drive, watch, lamp, screwdriver, pipe, toothbrush, sawing blade, nail clipper and two extra mines. Pretty awesome.

Handgun USB Drive

Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on March 21st, 2010

We’ve seen all kinds of crazy USB gadgets, but this may be the first handgun USB drive we’ve seen. The Handgun USB Drive comes with 4GB of storage and is USB 2.0 compatible. It will work with Windows 7, Vista, XP and Mac OS and measures just 75mm by 54mm and 12mm.

Even though it’s tiny, you don’t want to pack it in your bag and get on a plane, unless you like long talks with the TSA. The Handgun USB drive is only $22 from USB Geek.

MoProUSA unveils Wiimote pistols

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on February 25th, 2010

As a Wii owner you certainly have your choice of guns to choose from. But these are pretty good looking. Everything is still in prototype form, but it’s impressive. MoProUSA is looking to create a new range of gaming pistols, including one that requires no Wiimote and Nunchuk to operate.

The Duel Pro is modeled from a replica pistol, and has the guts of a Wii controller and Nunchuk inside. There’s also an analog nub on each side that lets you switch from one hand to the other. A color-changing LED is positioned on the rear for instant feedback.

The Shotgun Revolver

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on February 14th, 2010

Back in Dirty Harry’s day Harry Calahan’s .44 Magnum seemed like the canon of handguns. Times have changed a lot since then. These days if you run into a Chinese gangster, they are likely packing a shotgun revolver like the one above.

Homemade handgun revolvers that use standard 12 gauge shotgun shells are becoming very popular with Taiwanese gang members. This one was confiscated from a 19 year old gang gun runner. That handle on the front isn’t just for looks, it’s necessary for the kind of kick this thing delivers.

Steampunk blunderbuss actually fires

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on February 7th, 2010

We’ve covered many steampunk mods around these parts. Some are actually Steampunk while others are just a lot of brass attachments glued onto a gadget. Well this one is Steampunk alright. And these guns actually fire.

The blunderbuss shown above shoots not bullets, but rubber balls. That doesn’t mean it won’t hurt like a real bullet though. It shoots those rubber balls fast enough to actually penetrate cardboard from a distance. Ouch! And while we don’t want to be on the wrong end of this thing, we can’t help admiring the craftsmanship. Check out some videos below.

Smart handgun won’t fire unless you’re wearing this ugly watch

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on January 29th, 2010

If you see somebody wearing this ugly watch, run. They have a weapon. The idea here is to make guns safer. Or at least harder to fire. The new Armatix .22 comes with a custom watch. When the gun is within a few inches of the watch, a green LED on the back lights up, letting you know that it’s armed and ready to fire.

If you try to use it without wearing the watch, the LED turns red and it can not fire. It would be great for police weapons, so that they don’t get in civilian hands. The military as well. Your enemy will no longer be able to use your weapon against you should they somehow get it.

XCM PS3 Light Gun

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2010

Forget the fact that this light gun is white enough to pass for a Wii peripheral. It’s a prototype from XCM, for the PS3. Forget that it looks like a mod from a 4th grader thanks to the strange design, where it has half a Playstation controller with a gun on top. It looks like a mini crossbow for the latest Zelda game.

Even if this controller gives you a bit more control during gameplay, could you wield such a device without being laughed at by those in the room with you? Check out the video, then let us know what you think?
