K'nex IPod Case





Introduction: K'nex IPod Case

Hello there,

This is a gun shaped iPod Touch 4th generation case I made a while back.
It is a basic rubber band gun, with two ratchets, a tumbhole styled grip, and a few other features listed below:

- Fake charging handle (credit for it goes to The Dunkis)
- True trigger
- Comfortable stock, with opening cheek rest (to insert the iPod)
- Trigger guard
- Overall, pretty comfortable

My first idea was actually making a "djentstick". But I didn't have a spare pickup, guitar string etc. lying around.
Then I got the idea of making a gun that could hold an iPod, in this case a Touch 4th generation.
I still had the djentstick idea in my head, so originally, it was a rectangle ("stick") that could shoot rubberbands.
This resulted in something rather ugly. After a few days of tweaking, it turned into this gun / ipod case.

I hope you like it, and tell me what you think in the comments.

Middle of the gun. With the grip, trigger guard, and a little extension on the bottom, to make it more comfortable.

Photo 6:
The front of the gun. Sloped part is the front grip, on the right you see the exposed barrel and front sight.

Photo 7:
The back iron sight, and charging handle.

Photo 8:
How the rubberbands hook on the front. They go around the sight, and hook on only one side of the barrel. Because the ratchets aren't centered, this actually makes the bands fly straight-ish.

Photo 9:
Looking down the sights. Front sight is an y-clip as well.

    Needed one of these since my case broke. Good job!

    Kinda reminds me of Borderlands. Really enjoying Borderlands 2 right now... but kinda stuck... anyhow, this actually isn't too bad. Listen to rad beats, shoot siblings, walk around like a boss, what could be better?

    Borderlands 2 is hella fun! Currently playing a lot as Gaige / the Mechromancer myself, doing the Wildlife Preserve mission (for the third time, hahaha. Got to that point as Axton and Maya as well). Who is your favourite class, and where are you stuck?

    Anyway, glad you like it! I need to find a way to incorporate a small speaker in it. The build in ipod speaker doesn't work that well with low tuned guitars :p
    And of course post instructions...

    I know! I'm really enjoying it! It was a refreshing break from Cod. Anywho, where am I stuck and what is my favorite class?

    Well, I'll answer the last question first, as it is simplest... I have only used Axton, so I don't know if I'd like one of the other three classes any better... Where am I stuck, I cant beat Slag Bloodwing! I had to stop playing one night, so that I could sleep and all, and it always brings me back to the same whole starting point, so that means I have to go through all of the animals and loaders in the preserve to get back to Bloodwing, and when I get there, I can't beat her... What do you do? How do you deploy a turret using Axton? How do you use your bad-donkey points? What are the best weapons... JK, there are literally billions of weapons in BL2 so you just got to use what you got...

    I'm not at her yet

    but I use the Assassin

    I'm trying to use every character

    use a RPG bruh

    I have a slag 4 shot launcher with over 2000 damage :^)

    Sounds pretty sick bro, I've been powering through the game so far, and its been a blast! Still using the commando to finish up the level... The I'll probably go back and use Zero.

    The last time I beat her was with this loadout

    That grenade was a huge help. You get it with the GOTY edition, and it works a bit like this:
    - Throw grenade
    - Grenade travels a bit forward, then arcs up
    - Literally fireworks
    Also, do you use SHiFT codes? The BL2 facebook and twitter page give them out sometimes. You can use them on the golden chest in Sanctuary, for always purple gear or higher.

    Ah, Slag Bloodwing. Only beat her once so far, as Maya. Haven't confronted her as the other two profiles I have yet. I think I beat her with repetitively phaselocking, and just loadsa bullets.
    You're on PS3, right? I don't know the controls for that, so I can't help you with deploying turrets. Just take a look at your options, and you should find it.
    Spending your bad butt points is really up to you. I can't see what I spent them on right now, my laptop needs to get fixed. I do know, however, that I spent quite a few of them on reload speed, for Gaige.
    If you want some better weapons, you could make a SHiFt account (via the main menu -> exrtras -> SHiFt).
    When you have an account for that, look up some codes for golden keys here-o. When you have a bunch of keys, open the golden chest in Sanctuary, and you should get some high-tier items.

    O.K. well, thanks for the help man, I'll figure it out. Know anything about Minecraft? I have been really wanting to get into that scene recently, but I'm not sure if I really want to spend $20 on it or not...
