Electronics enthusiasts, makers and hobbyists searching for a new project to keep them busy this weekend, may be interested in this awesome DIY coilgun created by YouTube user “Gyro”.
Check out the video below to learn more about this awesome project which uses an Arduino Nano development board together with a few magnets and other assorted components to create a fully working coilgun capable of firing projectiles.
Coilgun is like a slingshot from the future. Whilst it’s kind of useless it’s a lot of fun to play with. I’m going to show you how to build one without using huge and expensive capacitors. My design powers coils directly from batteries and yes I mean coils since you can add as many as you want to make it more or less powerful.
