What toys do you think are cool?

I have seen this one

by tryten In reply to Bigger Gun

I have found some videos of this bad boy in action. Test firing it in several rate of fire configurations...through objects...several objects...5-6 walls at one point. Did I mention slowmotion and instant replay. This is one nasty little turret.

When set at 1 mill rps its compared to throwing a solid square of metal at the speed of a bullet.

I will post a link when I find where they are, combatvids.com comes to mind but I cant remember if thats the place.

George Dubya's aborted Strategic Defense Initiative program. As if we really need it. We haven't heard a thing about that crazy rehash of Ronald Reagan's idea since the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. It took a quite a head slap to make Dubya wake up and realize that our real enemies don't have intercontinental ballistic missiles. Suicide bombers ride in on the backs of camels, not on missiles.

Are they developing that thing?

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Bigger Gun

The last thing that I heard about it was a video shown to the Defense Force Heads of a test during of the prototype only got a reaction of It's Amazing what you can do with Computer Graphics now days.

They all thought it was a CI clip and not the real thing.

See how close to housing....

by JamesRL In reply to I need to get one of thes ...

When I worked at a similar lab in Canada, they were a good two miles from any houses, and seven or eight from a small town. That news story sounds like the lab has houses across the street.

They didn't have gatling guns, but they were a 5 minute helicopter flight from a military base which had armed personnel carriers, and special troops. They did have pistols and shotguns, and I am sure they had a weapons locker with more if needed. They did drills and training with the troops on occasion.
