How-to build your own sentry gun

Well the folks over at Weapons Grade have put together this DIY to build a completely automatic and autonomous sentry gun. Its seems straight out of the Terminator but it’s actually quite doable. The instructions on everything from the firing mechanism to the open source control software for the sentry are all available online at the sit below. A video below shows the sentry in action, minus a gun attached to it. I’d totally build on, and attach a Nerf dart-shooting gattling gun to it.

CAA Tactical pistol-rifle converter



CAA Tactical showed off their new pistol-rifle converter at Milipol 2009. It makes your pistol handle and feel like a short carbine rifle. The kit adds a front grip, stock, picatinny rails, sight and scope, and an extra magazine holder, it is also compatible for use with a silencer. It does not however, extend the barrel or change your pistol from being semi- to full-auto. It does not turn your pistol into a true rifle, but the new configuration makes your pistol handle more like a carbine providing a more steady platform and thus improving accuracy.

There are quite a few first person shooter games for the iPhone out there, but Assassin FPS is the first of it’s kind. It’s a fun little app that will give you quite a bit of cheap entertainment.

While there is no storyline or multiplayer type levels, it’s more of a game to entertainment yourself and shoot your friends without the hassle of cleaning up blood or burying bodies.

Mythbusters’ Kari Byron with a big bad gun



I really like the show Mythbusters, not really because I’m into the scientific methods they use and the interesting myths they try and bust. But because of the lovely Kari Bryon and how they seem to try and blow something up or shoot at something in almost every show, it has to be one of the best shows on the Discovery Channel. Well co-host Grant Imahara posted some of these images from one of their current myths their attempting to bust on his Twitter page, yup that’s Kari with a .50 BMG sniper rifle.

Modern Combat: Sandstorm iPhone app

In the game you are assigned to “Mission Sandstorm” and your mission is to eliminate terrorist and enemy insurgents.

HK MP5 Nintendo Wii controller



The Nintendo Wii is the most popular gaming console right now, and what makes it so fun to play is the cool motion control “Wiimotes.” Well here is one that is sure to turn heads, a replica Hecklor & Kock MP5. Displayed at a Hong Kong trade show it is a 1:1 scale copy of the popular German submachine gun. The company who made it plans to sell the new Wiimote in the U.S. but no price has been set as of yet, but we’re sure it’s gonna be pricey. The MP5 features a built-in Wiimote, nunchuck, MotionPlus sensor, speaker, rumble support and a rechargeable battery via USB.

What games will this be used with? We’re guessing Call of Duty!
