Joerg Sprave isn't one to sit idly by and let the zombies eat his innards. Evidence: his blood-spattered shirt and the huge crossbow slung across his shoulder.
The first nearly all 3D-printed gun has finally arrived and its creator has uploaded video of its test firing, footage that is already stirring controversy.
The fleet in the Persian Gulf is getting the navy's first laser weapon — way ahead of schedule.
You can separate an Oreo the boring way, with your tongue, or you can use an Oreo shotgun to do the trick much more violently.
Weaponry mods almost always result in something particularly nasty looking, but when one tinkerer decided to create a Taser Sword he may have hit the sweet spot of dangerous and beautiful.
Earlier this year, amateur gunsmiths got together to see if they could print out some parts that could be used to construct a fully functional AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. Last weekend, a 3D-printed lower receiver was tested to failure shooting real bullets, and made it through six shots before suffering what you could legitimately call a catastrophic structural failure.
Computers are about to take humans out of the shooting equation with a scoped rifle that's far better at hitting far away targets than we are.
The EMP grenade, or electromagnetic pulse grenade, is a sci-fi gaming staple. Toss one of 'em at the nearest evil robot or uncooperative computer system, and it'll generate a power surge that fries all electronics within range. The military has realized that this would be a handy real-life capability, and the Pentagon is asking someone to go out and invent one.
We know, the fact that the largest and most powerful laser in the world is now being used for weapons research might not, at first glance, sound like a bad thing. But it is, for two reasons: first, this laser used to be trying to figure out how to make fusion happen, and second, the weapons research does not involve turning it into a laser cannon.
Our official motto here at DVICE is as follows: "you can never have enough railguns." As it so often does, the U.S. Navy has followed our lead, and has acquired a second prototype railgun system for testing.
