So me and a friend have been doing some small tests, experiments and builds for the next version of the RAGE arcade gun. I’d like to present the general idea of the new gun and what features I would like for it.
The general idea is to stick a bunch of stuff to a rigid stick whereof the most important things are a holder for a Vive controller and a electrical recoil system. To add a bit of functional spice to it I also want to add a cooling system. The recoil system will heat up, and from what I learnt during the tests of the last version, spray cooling is cool in many ways. 2.0 will feature a built in spray cooling system.
My initial approach to this was to look for existing 3d-print models of automatic spray can pushers. That’s how discovered the automatic air freshener, a machine that pushes a spray can with a perfume to advert odor in a room. I bought one yesterday and managed to hack it somewhat.
Will present the recoil system next.
