NES Zapper laser gun w/sound effects

Hi Everyone, I came across the NES Zapper laser mod that burns things recently, and it lit a fire under my backside to do a similar build.  I've scoured various other resources and have yet to come across exactly what I'm looking to do.  And yes, I have already done a forum search for this project.  So, since I found the NES Zapper laser gun on Instructables, it seemed only right that I reach out to the Instructables community for assistance in making this project a reality. I am a rookie at this sort of stuff, but really want to make this happen.  I would like the battery to remain inside the Zapper, rechargeable by way of the female AC adapter connector.  I'd also like to add sound effects, so a speaker and soundcard is going to be needed.  I need help with the wiring circuit so I can adequately power the Laser, LEDs and sound effect without frying anything.  Below is a list of the components that I know of, I know there are others I'll need which is where I hope those of you reading this can help me out. 1 x Nintendo Entertainment System Zapper pistol 1 x 230-250mW 532nm laser 1-3 x Diffused Green LEDs 1 x Rechargeable CR123A 3.7 Lithium-Ion Battery (OLight has built in circuit board to prevent overcharging, over discharging and over discharge current) 1 x CR123A battery housing (found on thingiverse) Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

Nerf Gun Modification Services

Hey all. I've been modifying nerf blasters for about 2 years now, and would like to make my services availbable to everyone. From integrations to breeches, you can find it here. I'll be willing to modify the following (to a certain extent on some blasters): Nightfinder Maverick Big Bad Bow Longshot Recon Switchshot Airtech 2000 Titan Scout My contracts will consist of a blaster that you send (or the money FOR the blaster and service). I will then perform the modification and send it back to you. Or, we can discuss the type of blaster you're looking for, make it a suprise, THEN talk prices. http://s588.photobucket.com/albums/ss330/homasimpson/?action=view&current;=Movie.flv http://i588.photobucket.com/albums/ss330/homasimpson/CopyofCopyofNerfCrap005.jpg http://i588.photobucket.com/albums/ss330/homasimpson/Image-22.jpg http://i588.photobucket.com/albums/ss330/homasimpson/Image-19.jpg http://i588.photobucket.com/albums/ss330/homasimpson/IMG_5534.jpg http://i588.photobucket.com/albums/ss330/homasimpson/Image-1.jpg http://i588.photobucket.com/albums/ss330/homasimpson/Image.jpg Copy and paste those links into your browser, they're pictures but I don't know how to attatch them.

I'm wondering if anyone has an idea of how to do this or a better idea.?

I want to turn my Motorola Xoom in to a universal remote. My initial idea was to take a few Arduinos and turn them into IR/RF blasters that are connected to the home network either by WiFi/Ethernet. Each of these blasters would be considered zones. Then I'd have to build an android app which would send network packets to the appropriate blasters. Does anyone have any good better ideas? Or even a good place to start? Of course the blasters would either need to be programmable or contain a database of settings.

Is there any way to mod an Air Blasters Tommy 20 to keep it from jamming? Answered

Okay, I recently bought a Tommy 20 (what was I thinking?) to decorate/mod and make a "needle rifle" out of it with green LED darts (haven't made any designs for those yet) and so I took it home and tested it out. The results almost made me cry. But I figured that I could find a way to fix my problems. I opened it up (my dad doesn't know, shhhh!!!! It's my gun anyway), and I wrapped rubber bands around the drive wheels. It helped a little, but I'm still having problems. The darts aren't being pushed out of the holder far enough, and the ones that don't catch end up getting stuck and causing a huge jam up. Is there anything I can do to the mechanism that pushes these wretched darts forward push farther? Is there a cut I can make in the plastic that lets the darts not jam up? Should I keep the rubber bands on, or even-glue them on? What should I do (I just want it to shoot and not jam-I could care less about accuracy).

Oh and if you want another challenge visit my recent challenge to make an M1 Garand : www.instructables.com/community/Knex-M1-Garand-or-the-lack-of-them-/ Now, I was wondering if anyone could make a gun that looked like Hans Solo's DL44 Blaster.If you look it should be quite simple. You could use bakenbitz's BBKWG (www.instructables.com/id/BBKWG) as a starting point. Pic 1. The DL44 Pic 2. The DL44 (side view) Pic 3. The Mauser C96 on ehich it was based. I don't know about you but I really like this gun. With it's only competition the Colt .45 1911, this was the earliest coventional pistol. Pic 4. The hero himself, Hans Solo (with DL44) As the magazine is in front, you should'nt have much of a problem. I don't mind if it doe's or does'nt have the scope. So... Any takers?

Which NERF Gun is Better? Triple Shot or the Quick 16? Answered

I don't know what to get? I want to get the Triple Shot becuase it shoots three darts at once. Cool, huh? It has a range of 30 ft. after air ristrictors being removed. Not much, but I usually have a war in my house so it's a reasonable range. It's pump action and it's 21.99 at Toys "R" Us. The Quick 16 is cool becuase it has a slam fire mode that means it's fully automatic, semi automatic, and pump action. It has a built in stock and you insert the darts in without taking the clip out. That's what got me excited about this blaster. I don't know exactly which is better. If you have one of those blasters or have used one. Then can you describe the advatages and disadvantages? Thanks!

New K'nex firing/trigger method - shotgun burst effect

Meet my latest invention, the Quad Blaster. Its simplicity allows for a very compact system. Uses multiple, stacked slingshots and 'let-go' triggers that let me fire four single shots, or all four simultaneously. Check out the vid... The ammo it shoots are yellow rods that have tan clip connectors on the ends that hook into the rubber bands. Surprisingly powerful.I'm going to try to reduce its misfiring problem, then the Instructable for it will be underway.
