CoilOSapien – Robosapien Coil Gun

at 9:36 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks, Funny Hacks, Toy Hacks

This is an intro video of the CoilOSapien, Marcus will provide some build details in the near future!
Video after the jump.


The coilgun is controlled using the V2’s remote and is able to fire 8 shots with it’s electronic reload.
The charging time varies but is around the 5-10sec mark between shots, a red indicator light shows when the unit is charged and ready to fire, a laser sight aids in aiming.

A tutorial for the CoilOsapien hack will be found on my website this will discuss the theory and construction details of the coilgun modification.

Once again DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS HACK. Unless you are comfortable and familiar with potentially lethal voltages, eye damaging laser diodes and fast moving projectiles!!! ”

Thanks Robert

    How many kinetic joules dose that coilgun have?

  2. Marcus Says:

    Not sure how to work that out, It uses 4x 330v 230uf caps.

  3. Berni Says:

    well the capacitators store about 40 Joules then.Kietic output is projectile speed sqared multiplyed by mass W = v2 * m. I estimate it at about half a Joule kinetic output.Wich is not all that bad for such a small coilgun.

    I know this stuff cause i alredy made a coilgun one small and one big .Big one had about 13 Joules of kinetic output(goes esaly trough sheet metal). I should once make a multistage version for grater output
