UPDATE: The project is complete have a look at everything here. Nerf Gun Hack part 1, part 2, part 3

This is part 2 of the Nerf Gun hack, you can see part 1 of the project here. Last time some wiring was done to allow us to remotely control the three internal motors. This time the control wires are connected to a simple circuit that uses two darlington transistors to spin up and fire the gun. A 16f88 PIC microcontroller is being used to monitor an IR beam and fire the unit when the beam has been broken. The IR beam consists of an Infrared LED and an Infrared Transistor. To determine when the beam is broken an analog reading is taken by the PIC when the IR LED is off and again when the IR LED is turned on. The difference is used to determine the state of the beam, if the difference is small the beam is not broken and if the value is large we know something is blocking the beam. When the beam is broken the controller turns on the first darlington transistor to spin up the rotating motors, then a short time later the second darlington is activated which fires the dart into the spinning wheels.

    Nice work, Alan. Now if only the nerf gun itself could be hacked to speed up the load & fire sequence. Either that, or I suppose one would have to strategically position the sensor to hit your target with that kind of delay.

    Either way, it occurs to me that’d be a good way (in the Rube Goldberg sense) to train a cat to stay off the counter. ;)

    Nice, I was hoping to see some innocent (or not) person get pelted with a full volley. lol

    Hey Kozz,

    It does take a bit of time to fire the first shot but after that it is in full auto mode as long as the beam is broken and then it really flies. :)

    Hi Pouncer,

    I am thinking that the next installment may include some human testing!

  5. NatureTM Says:

    That’s pretty cool! I like the action of the gun itself when it chambers the next round.

    btw I don’t mind the mess. You should see the messes I make!

    More interested in triggering a compact digital camera or video. How to open up the digital one-piece unit, & the correct wires?

  7. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi Greg,

    You could meter the button of the camera and use an NPN or a PNP transistor accordingly. You could also use a small N/O relay contact if you don’t want to have any of your experimental electronics mingling with the electronics of the camera. Of course this assumes that the camera uses a N/O (normally open) push button which is a good assumption.

    This would be bad*ss mounted on the that autonomous sentry gun from the sentry project http://www.paintballsentry.com

    […] nice Nerf Sentry Gun, he used the NERF Vulcan which was the same gun I was thinking of using for my Nerf Gun project which is currently being finished but it was quite a bit more than the knock off that I ended up […]
