That's Crazy, Nerf Darts now can fired without blasters

Image: instructables Nobody can deny that it is too much adventurous when you enter the battle with well-garnished colored plastic blasters filled with painless foam darts. With a Nerf gun in hand, sneaking up on your opponent is not exactly stealthy, but if you do the same with a few cleverly designed self-firing darts, nobody will suspect your true intentions. Spring-loaded mechanisms and compressed air are the two main ways to create a self-firing dart that is suitable for the market. Hartlaub acknowledged the use of explosives, but that would be a more risky and less commercially viable option. Therefore, most manually primed dart blasters combine the first two techniques, in which a compressed spring releases an air burst into a chamber. Hartlaub used only a spring, a nail with a notch on the tip, and a thin aluminum tube to successfully construct a self-contained foam dart. This was accomplished through some trial and error. Within the dart itself, everything is crammed.

So, after more testing—some of it possibly unsafe due to the use of butane and even gasoline with a spark lighter—Hartlaub was able to develop an impressive firing mechanism that is just as small, even if it does use explosions. Hartlaub now uses a capacitor, a heating element as an ignitor, and a tiny button to light flash cotton that is stuffed deep inside the dart. To prevent the foam material from melting, the flash cotton produces just enough expanding air to launch the dart.

The range could likely be extended even further with additional testing and an optimized quantity of flash cotton (that doesn't destroy the dart in the process). Even though Hasbro would never permit it to be sold.
