We love our hip salon located in West Columbia. The best part about our creative compound here at the WECO building is the people that surround us. For months we’ve been wanting to spill the beans about a project that our friends at The Bigger Design have been working on for MailChimp. (Que intro music)

The Bigger Design (with some truematter-member contribution) modded  NERF guns to an exponential degree. Not happy with your MailChimp tech help? Just log on and shoot the techie from the convenience of your home!

So what makes this project so special? Well, other than the fact that it is cool. The NERF guns are controlled virtually (aiming, shooting, shooting again). The guns work by way of Arduino (thats the open-source circuit board) and Flash (that is the programming language that makes video talk to the gun).

Still not too sure? Check out the video and judge for yourself. Also, drop by The Bigger Design’s blog and say “hi!” (www.thebiggerdesign.com/blog)
