MailChimp’s Robotic Double Vulcan Nerf Gun Turret

Like a lot of companies out there, our support and compliance teams have some pretty epic Nerf gun battles. And they have no mercy. They’ll even shoot at CEOs (gasp!). When we flew our awesome AR Drone project through the office, what did they do? They shot it down with extreme prejudice. So, for some reason, I thought it would be a great idea to commission the guys at TheBiggerDesign to build a Robotic Double Vulcan Nerf Gun Turret for our support team:

As you can see from the video, there’s even a fun "Death Blossom" mode.

What’s really cool about this thing is it can be controlled remotely, through the web. So once we get it all wired up, we plan to allow our customers to shoot us.

Wait, why did I do this again?
