For the upcoming Hacked on Classics show being held as part of the Brighton Digital Festival in the UK this month, hacker Seb Lee-Delisle modified the classic NES' Zapper accessory with LEDs, a green laser, the smoke-generating parts from an e-cigarette and a small blower to create the convincing effect of a functional laser pistol.
One of the best accounts to follow on Instagram belongs to the Transport Security Administration. It's a never-ending list filled with photographic evidence that many people don't understand basic rules of airline travel. However, over the weekend the TSA documented an atypical and horrifying discovery: A 3D-printed handgun with live rounds.
Video: The board game Operation is a great example of how negative feedback can also negatively affect your performance. But instead of playing in constant fear of that loud buzzing sound, when you touch the sides while playing this sadistic version of Operation, you get blasted with a paintball gun. Sounds like a lot of fun.
Ah, in a tale as old as ice and fire, here's a liquid nitrogen 'squirt gun' versus a flamethrower. The Backyard Scientist outfitted a liquid nitrogen canister with a release valve that basically turns liquid nitrogen into a freeze ray death weapon of sorts (as in, the pressure makes the liquid nitrogen shoot out pretty strong). He pitted it up against a flame thrower to see how long it would take the liquid nitrogen shooter to win and it's quite the battle.
The Federal Government has announced a $25.4 million funding injection into the detection and seizure of illegal firearms, including "specialised intelligence software tools" aimed at boosting intelligence collection on international firearms trafficking.

Finally you will avail yourself of the need to type out the letters for avocado, bacon, selfie, face palm, and pregnant. But last month, one controversial emoji was removed from the lineup: Rifle.
Selfie sticks are inherently silly, but they somehow become even sillier when they get Photoshopped to replace guns in movie scenes. So instead of Clint Eastwood balancing his revolver in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, he's now angling a selfie stick to take a picture of himself smoking a cigar. Instead of menacing characters dueling off with guns in The Hateful Eight, it's two ridiculous people pointing a selfie stick in the snow. It's hilarious.
