Tiny coil gun powered by camera battery is cute 'n deadly

It’s only deadly to paper, but hey. We here at CrunchGear love our coil guns. Tesla coil guns, Wiimote coil guns, robot coil guns, we’ll take ’em all. What can I say, it’s just good fun for the whole family! This one is for baby.

The little light-switch enclosure contains a camera flash battery, some circuit hackery, and the few parts necessary to accelerate a BB to paper-penetrating speed. Want to make your own? Assuming you know how to make a basic coil gun, here are parts used. Go forth and coil.
