Video: Despite being made of plastic, Nerf's dart blasters look incredibly realistic and detailed — as long as you can ignore their garishly bright colours. Adam Savage apparently could not, however, so he spent an entire day giving the Nerf Longstrike CS-6 a fantastic facelift to make it look like a prop from of a sci-fi blockbuster.
A few years ago Nerf decided the best way to lure teens away from paintball and back to its foam darts was with a new line of blasters capable of firing tiny foam balls at speeds of up to 112km/h. The latest addition to that line is the formidable Nemesis MXVII-10K which comes with a massive 100-shot hopper that keeps you blasting away for almost half a minute.
Video: Some people take their Nerf dart blasters very seriously. There are entire leagues dedicated to running around and blasting fellow players with foam darts — essentially a less painful version of paintball. But what darts are worth arming yourself with? Nerf expert Frank Cooper breaks it down in this exhaustively comprehensive comparison video.

But with Nerf's new Accustrike line, precision, patience and aiming are finally the better approach.
GoPro's new Karma drone looks like a wonderful addition to any professional videographer's toolkit, but at $1195.95, it's not for everybody. If you don't quite have the budget for the Karma, this €49 ($72) foam GoPro accessory is a cheaper way to capture some decent aerial footage.
Our ragged group of survivors shifts nervously, ready to cut and run at the first sign of danger. A horde of zombies ambles slowly towards us, a distraction from the lone runners slipping around the sides to try and catch us off guard. "Hold the line!" someone shouts, but we all know that if it came to it, we'd turn on our fellow survivors if it helped us get out alive. This is Zedtown.
Every new Star Wars movie means the fictional universe gets new characters, new storylines, new planets, new vehicles, and, most importantly, new toys. With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hitting theatres in just a few months, the film's marketing onslaught is now officially underway, including new blasters from Nerf if you've got Death Star plans of your own to steal.
