A Real-Life Nine-Inch Nail Gun Puts Puny Nerf to Shame

By Eric Limer on at

Played Quake recently? Or listened to any Trent Reznor? This man's insane, semi-automatic nine-inch nail gun will make you want to do both. That and also eat some melons.

From the same mind the brought us a lovely and inadvisable 3D-printed cornstarch flamethrower comes this spike-slinging monster, which can apparently be made from the sort of debris you might expect to find in a post-apocalyptic landscape. Inventor Ivan Owen doesn't share any of the specifics on how he created this monstrosity, which is both a little disappointing but probably also for the best.

You're probably better off with a Nerf gun, Quake Live, and The Social Network soundtrack.
