This is a project from a long time ago. I thought it would be cool and make me the hit of the parties to have an LED hat that lights up and did cool animation things for a dance. Turns out the hat won’t help meeting people as much as I thought. None the less, […]

3D Printed Nerf Blaster

This is my “fully” 3D printed foam dart blaster! It was inspired by Nerf’s toy guns that fire foam darts at children.
