You might not realise it, but Nerf is a nearly 50-year old brand. From soft foam footballs to the latest in high-tech dart blasters, the history of Nerf is one of constant development and innovation. Here are Nerf's greatest hits and most important toys, starting in the year that humankind landed on the moon.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

2017 is a good time to be a fan of Nerf. There's a bunch of new blasters with different looks, features and add-ons, and you can still buy plenty of the company's all-time classic greats. If you're going shopping for a Nerf blaster in Australia, here's what you can get your hands on right now.

It's Nerf Week here at Gizmodo! Every day we'll be bringing you some awesome Nerf content to satiate your blaster love.

So now that you're locked and loaded and have a box full of spare darts ready -- this is exactly how you should put them to good use.
