Video: Watch as we slow down time to see this guy fire off 20 bullets in just 1.5 seconds from two double-barrelled pistols. It’s a ballistics ballet that looks almost unreal at certain angles. The top-down look of the guns firing is especially cool to see, like a first-person shooter video game view only in real life.
The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen helped reinforce the idea that young women don’t have to wait for a knight in shining armour to come and rescue them; they can instead pick up a weapon and be the hero themselves.

But that’s a job that even kids can do now, without a ladder, thanks to this blaster that fires sticker-tipped darts.
