This guy built a NERF gun that fires at 2.3 times the speed of sound

by Joey Davidson | April 2, 2017

No thanks, Giaco Whatever, I’ll pass on joining you for a quick NERF battle. You’ve gone too far.

This YouTuber built a gun that’s capable of firing a NERF dart at a whopping 800 meters per second. That, according to his calculations, Mach 2.351, or 2.3 times the speed of sound.

That’s fast. Also, it’s likely deadly. The down sound? The high-speed camera used to capture the footage doesn’t shoot fast enough to really capture the dart in motion. In fact, as Giaco Whatever shows, the camera’s only fast enough to capture the dark as it moves in two separate frames. That’s sort of absurd.

This YouTuber promises changes and more

What I dig most about this effort is that Giaco Whatever says he’ll be back for more. First, he’s going to get a better camera. Second, he’s going to build a second version of the gun that fires the dart even faster.

Why not?
