Our childhood dream has come true with this gigantic nerf gun!

Marc Rober, the savvy enginner with the Youtube channel “Eclectical Engineering”, created this giant nerf gun that uses a paintball air tank. It shoots 6 darts, made from pool noodles and toilet plungers, at 40 mph! The normal dart will travel ~ 50 yards but a 3D printed projectile they made traveled a stunning 130 yards!

The Eclectical Engineering team tried swapping the air system for a black powder cannon, which made it capable of blowing up watermelons! For those of you who want your own giant nerf gun, they created a guide for people to build their own.

Tag your childhood friends!
