Tesla coil Nerf gun

Tesla coils and Nerf guns

Two things that are always cool: Tesla coils and Nerf guns. One thing that’s cooler than those two things: a freaking Tesla coil Nerf gun. That’s right. Rob Flickenger converted a Nerf gun into a handheld Tesla coil. Freaking. Sweet.
Here’s how Flickenger and Rusty Oliver of the HazardFactory made the gun Tesla coil-ready:
He made an aluminum version of the plastic toy. He gathered cans, scrap metal, and even a bicycle fender and melted it all down. Then he and Oliver created a cast of the Nerf gun out of sand and clay and poured in the molten aluminum. After it hardened, Flickenger milled excess metal from the interior using a CNC machine and cleaned up the edges with a rotary tool.

Flickenger, who taught himself the physics of high-voltage electricity, used a transformer from an old TV, a battery from a power drill and a fan from an old computer server for the Tesla coil portion.

    1. This happening is supported with a machine that can be filled up with photo curable liquid acryl
      ate polymers. A more intelligent version of your typical PCB software package, the EAGLE Layout Editor can create manufacturing instructions for multiple plotter
      types, milling machines and test equipment. Shocked the Japanese
      media Haier launched the “no tail” TV.
