"Say hello to my little friend"

Nerf guns were a literal blast to play with as kids… until someone ultimately took a plastic dart to the eye. Well, those kids have grown up and a few of them became engineers — NASA engineers to be a little more specific.

Then watch his friends from Eclectical Engineering swap the air system for black powder, turning this Nerf gun into a cannon below.
