Design Challenges

Last week we posted our first ever design challenge in partnership with MailGun. The goal: create a control system for a robotic Nerf gun that pans the gun and fires a dart when an email is sent to a specific address. It’s a neat way to integrate MailGun’s services with hardware.


We now a have a few of the Nerf Vulcan EBF-25 blasters in the office, and we’ve torn one apart to make it electrically controlled.

You can check out the contest details here. The best design will win $500, and their design will be sent to PyCon 2013 to fire Nerf darts at the MailGun booth. You have until March 1st to submit your design.
