Gun From Call of Duty: Ghosts Gets a Lego Replica

The gun in the video is a 9mm MP-443 Grach, used quite commonly in the game Call of Duty: Ghosts. Now this is a scale replica of the Russian made semi-automatic weapon, built all in Lego. The detailing itself is masterful, with several elements taken care of. What sets it apart is that the gun is fairly “functional.” It doesn’t shoot, which is a bummer, but the pistol does have details like a removable clip and slide action to match the gun.

This map shows the primary assault rifles that armies around the world use. As you could guess, the AK-47 and its variants have much of the world covered, and then there are other names like the M4s and the M16s.

The End is Nigh! Device Allows Flies to Aim a Revolver

In a world where we prepare for wars with zombies and our future robot overlords, we have committed the huge mistake of ignoring something like the housefly. Fly Revolver by David Bowen shows just how big of a mistake overlooking flies as future weaponised adversaries can be. The flies live inside an acrylic sphere with a target backdrop. Movements of flies and their interactions are captured by a video camera that then feeds it to control circuits, which eventually end up controlling where the revolver aims.

Tiny Pistols That Were Built Into Jailers’ Keys

Back in the good old days, turnkeys and jailers in prison did not walk around weapon free like they do in modern prisons.

The tiny gun wouldn’t do huge damage, but it would get them enough time to thwart plans of the imprisoned.
