Bluetooth Nerf Gun Turret

By Andrew Gregory. Posted

This security-conscious build is a completely 3D-printed Nerf gun turret, controllable by the user over Bluetooth. It uses an Arduino Nano to control two servers (for tilt and pan); two DC motors to fire the darts, and there’s a servo to push the darts into the rollers when the order to fire is given.

Kevin Drouglazet’s written Windows and Android versions of the control software; just move the cursor on your screen to control the turret and keep pesky kids off your lawn.

The software, bill of materials, and design files for the 3D-printed parts are all available from Kevin’s website, so anyone can make their own version.
