C’mere, So I Can Shoot You A Lot: Heat-Tracking NERF Sentry Gun

It’s about time that someone combined over-the-top Nerf guns with autonomous cubicle warfare sensibility.

Behold the winner of MAKE’s Gadget Freak Design Contest:

Rick Prescott outfitted a Nerf® Vulcan EBF-25 machine gun with an array of Devantech TPA81 thermopile sensors, all controlled by an ATmega168, to create this wicked Aliens-style heat-tracking autocannon:

“An idea sparked in my mind one day while walking the toy gun isle in a store with my kid and later that evening learning of the workings of a thermopile array while surfing the internet.”

Translation: “Nerf blahbitty-blahbitty thermopile blah blah HA HA I SHOT YOU SEVEN TIMES WITHOUT EVEN LOOKING!”
