In what archaeologists are calling the "find of a lifetime", a horde of Late Bronze Age weapons has been discovered at a Scottish construction site. Among the items found is a gold-decorated spearhead, and a 3000-year-old bronze sword in remarkably good condition.

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.
There's a bit of crossover when it comes to the lexicons of cameras and weapons (aiming, shooting, etc.) so it's no surprise that someone would be inspired to find a way to combine them. Photographer and artist Jason Siegel decided his take would be a literal fusion of familiar camera components to create fake guns, explosive and other wartime paraphernalia as part of his "Shoot Portraits, Not People" exhibit.
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?

Video: I'm a total sucker for watching old tools get turned into badarse blades, because seeing random objects get weaponised is such silly dangerous fun. That used to be a thing that tightened bolts! Now it's a knife that will slice your eyes out. Plus, it looks cool as hell.

The wrench's jaws act as the handle.
Video: There's nothing I want to do more in life than to shoot a Tesla coil gun. Seeing those bolts of electricity fly out of that death ray-looking weapon is basically all I've ever dreamed about since I've watched Ghostbusters, and this Tesla coil gun is the closest thing to a real-life Proton Pack that I've ever seen.
