Recording a firefight with Nerf’s camera-equipped blaster
People really, really like to record themselves shooting things. Do a quick web search on “gun camera mount,” and you’ll find a huge range of companies selling frames that will let you get a gun’s-eye view of your hunt. The same thing holds true for the much more innocuous Nerf blaster. Instructions for making your own Nerf camera mount are all over YouTube, and the company itself sells an inexpensive iPhone attachment. Neither of these options, however, is quite as slick as the Nerf Cam ECS-12 Blaster’s tiny built-in microphone and camera, which we got a chance to try out at New York’s Toy Fair.
