Watch This Homemade Nerf Blaster Shoot Darts at Twice the Speed of Sound

Italian YouTube science geek Giaco Whatever is completely obsessed with firing off Nerf darts in dramatic fashion. So much so that he invented what he calls a “lethal Nerf gun,” powered by 400 PSI of pressure, that can shoot a dart that pierces a Red Bull can.


In a follow-up experiment, he was able to get the Nerf dart’s speed up to Mach 2.3, or twice the speed of sound (that’s a little over 1,700 mph). Watch as the Nerf dart pierces a block of wood this time around.
