When you see a vacant lot that’s fenced off and no one seems to care about it all that much, why not throw some grenades at it? No, not the ordinary explosive kind – but instead use some Flower Grenades.
eBay seller/Halo fan/Brute arms manufacturer smick6 is selling this nicely done replica of a Spike Grenade. It’s spiky.
smick6 used PVC, smooth-on urethane, aluminum and faux leather to make the prop. It’s 38″ long, the longest blades are 19″ end to end, and the whole thing measures 4.5 lbs.
At first glance at this picture, you’d think you were looking at an AK-47 covered in white paint. But on closer examination, you’ll realize it’s actually an intricate papercraft model.
Created by artist Martin Postler and Ian Ferguson of London’s Postlerferguson, these one in the photo above was created for an art exhibition back in 2008.
These plush, handmade Resident Evil grenades will sadly not explode on impact… but that does mean they can be thrown over and over, to the great detriment and humiliation of your victim. Or you can just throw ’em at the television, which is what creator Id decided to do.
As far as hacks and mods go, retrofitting a decommissioned hand grenade with mp3 playing guts is on the top of the clever and creative list. But as far as real world application is concerned? Well, I wouldn’t be whipping this thing out at work anytime soon.
Listen, you can talk about the story in the Halo series and the graphics in Gears of War, but it really all comes down to getting down and tearing stuff up. Fragger strips away all the details and gets things down to basics: blowing dudes up.
Explosive modder Matt purchased some decommissioned test grenades and decided that it would make for a great MP3 player shell. So does it? Yesno.
Matt stuffed the innards of a 2GB Sansa Clip into the grenade.
I don’t know if I’d feel really comfortable putting my hand on this mouse, given the fact that it started its life as a device designed to blow off limbs.
Still, assuming the explosives have been thoroughly scrubbed from the innards of the old grenade casing, I suppose you’d look mighty macho controlling your computer with one of these bad boys.
Maybe it’s just me, but I think it’s a bad idea to strap a live hand grenade to your wrist (or any part of your person, for that matter). I’d especially be wary of one that’s making a subtle ticking noise.
If you’re looking for the ultimate way to wake up your roomie, or just want to give someone a good old-fashioned heart attack, the Sonic Grenade might just fill the bill.
To startle your unsuspecting victim, simple pull the pin and lob your grenade in their general direction.
