Heat-seeking Nerf machine gun is seriously intimidating

How do you make a badass Nerf belt-fed machine gun even more badass? By modifying it to sense out body heat and fire at anything alive that crosses its path. Holy moly.

Rick Prescott connected an infrared sensor to a Nerf Vulcan EBF-25TM to create an instrument of, if not death, at least automated annoyance. It's a thing of beauty.

As for what he's going to do with it now that's it's completed? "Personally, I have grand plans to deploy the infrared seeking sentinel facing the entrance of my work cubical in order to speed interaction with less desirable visitors." Rick Prescott, we salute you. A true American hero.
