Look out, NERF, there’s a new weaponized foam launcher in town in the form of the Shelby Destroyer foam disc blaster. The gun is capable of firing six foam discs per second with a 120 round capacity, with both semi-automatic and fully-automatic capabilities.
Halloween is just around the corner, and if you’re looking to win every costume party in town, you should head over to Two Horns United’s Etsy shop, and check out their incredible collection of custom-built helmets, costumes, and cosplay accessories.
I’d assume if you found yourself on an island packed with a hundred other people all bent on killing you so they can survive that you would take whatever armor you can get. This is why I have no problem with the infamous bulletproof frying pan that people wear in the game PUBG.
It may sound like an anti-fungal cream, but Canadian company Calimacil actually specializes in LARP weapons, armor and accessories. The company has recently developed a lightsaber that can emit lights and sounds but is safe to use, thanks in part to the translucent foam that they use for the blade.
Blade of the Black Swordsman sounds like some sort of interracial adult movie, but it’s not. It’s actually a really cool black sword made out of foam. With it, you can best your enemies without drawing blood, and having to go to jail/the hospital.
Something cool is coming to CeBit in Germany this March, and it is called RoboChop. It’s not a half human, half robot cutting machine, it’s a robotic cutting arm. It’s designed to cut 20″ polystyrene blocks into shapes that people from the internet command it to cut.
Tyler Richins’ son Ben loves swords. Not only does he like playing with them, Ben also asks his dad to draw different sword designs. This inspired Tyler to come up with Prime Swords, which are foam swords with interchangeable parts.
Sometimes I really miss those old epic quest RPG gaming titles like The Legend of Zelda. Nothing today really captures the excitement I felt back then while playing those games. These Quest 8-bit Mats sets from JBox are the perfect way to relive those old games.
A company called MarBlue has come up with a solution for kid-proof headphones that’s so simple you’ll regret not coming up with it and getting mad funds on Kickstarter. They’re called HeadFoams, a pair of headphones with its electronics encased in soft, flexible and non-toxic EVA foam.
I’m sure you’ve bought fruit or had some at home when it was still wrapped snugly in the box in its foam rubber packaging. I remember my cousins and I fighting over who got the stretchy, accordion-like stuff whenever an adult would grab an apple or pear from the box, because it was a toy to us, not trash.
You can be a romantic by wanting to lay yourself down on a bed of roses, but I’d rather be comfortable and lie down on a bed of foam balls instead. Not just regular foam balls because they’ll clearly roll all over the place, leaving you to lie on nothing but the hard floor.
I’m frequently impressed with the projects coming out of DARPA, but most of the stories I’ve come across have been about their advances in robotics and defense systems. This new technology is designed specifically to save lives of wounded soldiers and civilians, and it does it with a simple spray foam.
