Electric Gatling Gun

Gatling guns are nothing new, but the XM556 Microgun is the "world's first electric handheld Gatling gun". Smaller than an M4 rifle, it can be used just about anywhere with precise accuracy, complete with 5.56mm belt-fed ammunition. "This defensive suppression weapon is significantly smaller and lighter than its big brother the M134. It was meant to stand in place of anywhere high suppressive fire wanted without the weight or footprint of the larger M134 electrically driven Gatling gun system," according to an Empty Shell company representative.

Crate of Doom

H/T: HiConsumption

The problem with a disaster such as a zombie apocalypse is that most will not have quick and easy access to the weapons required to fight off walkers. ACME's Crate of Doom aims to solve that. Inside this seemingly normal crate, you'll find: a baseball bat, grappling hook with rope, mace, a leather bullwhip, ninja-style katanas, a modern Vietnamese-style tomahawk, two-handed machete, a kukri (Nepalese knife), and more.

Photo credit: Instructables via Hi Consumption

The Arcus, by Instructables user Matthew Davis, is basically a fully 3D-printed rubber band Gatling gun capable of firing 48 rubber bands in mere seconds. Unlike similar creations, this one uses the energy from shooting rubber bands to spin the barrels. It also features an arm mount system, similar to the one Samus wears in Metriod, and a cam system that activates the barrels when the trigger is pulled. The parts are all designed to snap together, which means no screws or glue will be required. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny demotivational posters gallery.

SALT Pepper Spray Gun

The Salt Self Defense Gun looks like a normal firearm, but this non-lethal weapon shoots rounds filled with a powdered mix of pepper that creates a toxic cloud upon impact. Rather than provide a lethal blow, it simply incapacitates anyone in the vicinity. In other words, you don't necessarily need to hit your target to stop them, and should it go off by accident, there won't be any serious repercussions. It uses a magazine that holds 7 rounds which you can fire consecutively, and each CO2 cylinder allows for 21 shots. Get one here now. Continue reading for two more videos and information.

3D-Printed AR15 Rifle

As 3D printers get more advanced, things like firearms, cars and even entire homes, can be made in 1-day or less. YouTube user "cozmogeek" spent a few months building a fully-functional AR-15, and fires it at clay pigeons on camera. "This was printed in ABS with .2mm layers on my Ultimaker 2. It uses $8-10 worth of filament, and unfortunately it took me 3 tries to get a good print. It also takes 24-48 hours to print depending on your settings. I'm sure I could get more good prints without so many failures now that I have figured out the process a little better. Supports are critical for this print since most of the part sits on supports," said cozmogeek. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Meteorite Handgun

Cabot Guns took a real Gibeon meteorite that crashed on Earth approximately 4.5-billion years ago - discovered in Namibia - and turned it into a real firearm. "It hasn't been done before and that's the kind of thing that drives me. Meteor is rare, more so than terrestrial precious metals and I wanted to create a set of guns that were formed from a material that had intrinsic value," said Rob Bianchin, founder of Cabot Guns. Called the "Big Bang Pistol Set," the two handguns were created using X-rays, 3-D modeling, electron-beam welding, and EDM wire cutting. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
