    You know what you could do to make an awesome airsoft gun would be to take the spring from a conventional firearm bolt mechanism, and then use a type of gauss rifle assembly to tension it. This way, you can get high power repeater fire without having to use ammo with iron rods in it as you do for the conventional assembly.

    That sounds like it could hurt someone.

    No no that's the beauty. The ammo contains no dangerous components, it's just foam.

    Real-time communication and collaboration tool (to put it fucking lightly); open source and extremely extensible. There's an hour long presentation that demonstrates what it's capable of.
