NERF to launch camera-equipped blaster

See also

NERF has gone high-tech! According to the Imaging Resource, which has taken a bit of a tangent with a recent piece of reporting, toy company NERF is going to be releasing a camera-equipped blaster at some point later this year. Called the NERF Cam ECS-12, the Elite blaster will be able o record all of the action via a built-in camera atop the barrel.

So, what of the camera gun?

On the surface, the NERF Cam ECS-12 is pretty similar to the other blasters in NERF's Elite Series. For weapon specifications, the NERF Cam employs a clip holding 12 darts, which are, in addition to air, powered by a built-in motor. Propellants combined, the gun can fire darts up to 90 feet as fast as you can pull the trigger. As a convenience, there's a door above the clip, which allows easy access to stuck darts.

As for the camera specifications, they are not impressive at all. With a resolution of only 0.3Mp and a frame rate of just 20fps, the camera is yesterday's technology but, on the other hand, it is the first built-in camera ever placed on a toy gun. The camera uses 4 AA batteries, which NERF claims can last for about 3 hours. As a final touch, NERF includes a 4GB SD memory card with the blaster.

Want one? The NERF Cam ECS-12 will hit stores in fall or around $75-80.
