OMG! Introducing NERF Nuke from ThinkGeek!

The NERF Nuke is quite simply the pinnacle of NERF weaponry. Load it with 80 NERF darts and crank the arming mechanism (which is also the trigger button, so be careful). To conserve space, the NERF Nuke uses a reverse-plunger system, which compromises distance for compactness.

But hey, it’ll still fire the darts up to 30 feet when it hits. However, the NERF Nuke Launcher is a tripod-mounted, direct-plunger system, and can rocket the NERF Nuke itself up to 40 feet – just far enough for you to be outside the blast radius. When you need to end it, and end it fast, there’s no other choice than the NERF Nuke!

DIY: Build a Zoetrope [Sick Science]

Vision and the way our brains perceive what we are seeing are incredible. Just think of optical illusions, 3D images, the fact that your eyes are processing the world around you upside-down!
