Mind Blowing 'Portal' Gun Replica Being Auctioned for Charity

A couple of years ago, graphic designer, prop-maker and all around nerd Harrison Krix became a minor viral celebrity when he posted photos of a replica 'Portal' gun online. Now he's making the rounds again with a second, updated incarnation of the iconic game prop, which is now headed for a charity auction. The gun (which can be seen in action after the break) glows both orange and blue, makes...

10-Barrel Gatling Gun Blasts T-Shirts 150 Yards

If you've ever attended a sporting event, you've seen the guys and girls who carry air cannons on their shoulders and blast t-shirts into the stands. But rest assured, you have never seen anything like this 10-barrel, robotic Gatling gun that pumps out three tees every second. Designed by NASA and Team 254 Robotics of Bellarmine College Preparatory, the 'bot can blast a total of 400 shirts with...

Woman Travels 200 Miles, With Gun in Hand, to Kill Mean Internet Commenter

Share Dear Switched commenters: please think twice before verbally bashing someone online! We have to imagine that there are more people out there like 25-year-old Breana Greathouse, who traveled over 200 miles with a gun in her hand to kill someone who was mean to her on the Internet. Breana (which we've also seen spelled "Briana") was apprehended on Wednesday morning in Ottumwa, Iowa after...

DIY Robotic Paintball Sentry Blasts Holes in Cardboard Boxes

The appeal of paintball is lost on us, but that doesn't mean we don't recognize a cool robotic paintball turret when we see one. Thanks to Ubergizmo, we found this particular one, a DIY project by some nerdy paintball enthusiasts at Alter Robotics. It's a pan-and-tilt, robotic tripod turret, equipped with an electronic paintball gun (that looks infinitely cooler than the one we got from Walmart...

'.38 Special Samaritan' Arrested for Aiming at iPhone Thieves

Daring heists of Apple gadgets occur so frequently, and with such violent gusto, that rather ordinary robberies seem incredibly mundane by comparison. An assault on an Oregon AT&T store, and the plundering of its iPhones, has made headlines for one highly uncharacteristic occurrence, though. The twist in this frantic tale involves an arrest, but the captured perp wasn't even one of the...

BlackBerry Saves Woman From Speeding Bullet, Stupid Boyfriend

iPhones may help us survive earthquakes, but do they possess the superhuman strength to stop a speeding bullet? Well, at least one BlackBerry does. An Ohio woman was recently watching her boyfriend play around with his handgun at a Dayton restaurant, when calamity struck. As the biffie was putting the pistol back in his pocket, it unexpectedly discharged, directly at the woman's leg. Luckily,...

Man Arrested for Threatening to Shoot iPhone

We grumble about our iPhones as much as the next guy. It takes forever to open a text message, boots up slower than our '90s era Pentium-powered Gateway, and requires us to use the bloated, buggy, and just plain awful iTunes [Editor's Note: Terrence is particularly known for his iPhone irritations]. But as big of a headache as it is, we draw the line at putting a bullet in it -- at least publicly....

NYPD Working on 'Talking' Guns to Prevent Friendly Fire

After Detective Omar Edwards was shot and killed by friendly fire while in plain clothes on May 28th, New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly began seeking a way for firearms to communicate with one another in order to stop accidents like this from happening again. According to FOX News, the NYPD has initiated preliminary discussions about such devices with the Pacific Northwest National...

New iPod touch Application Improves Your Sniper Rifle Accuracy

We're trying... we're trying real hard to cling to our pacifist ways. But damn if the fusion of this US Army M110 Sniper Rifle and mounted iPod touch running the BulletFlight external ballistics calculator (available via the App Store) doesn't make us want to kill. Tap in the variables such as weather conditions, ammunition type, distance to target, and wind speed before exhaling and gently...

Mafia Raid Uncovers Cell Phone Gun

If you think the mafia has just been sitting around slowly watching itself sink into irrelevance and letting the world pass it by you'd be sadly mistaken. Need proof? Just check out the Bond-esque weapon found during a Mob related raid in Naples. A four round .22 caliber pistol was concealed within a somewhat dated looking cell phone, complete with dummy LCD screen. The keypad on the...

'Metal Gear Solid' Rubber Band Gun Is Non-Lethal Overkill

When you're caught between the lines of dueling mercenary armies, trapped in a rapidly aging body that doesn't quite react the way it used to, you need a reliable side arm to protect yourself. That was Solid Snake's situation in 'Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots,' his chosen weapon the Silver Wolf pistol, recreated here in as a Japanese fan's stainless steel and rubber band DIY...
