This post on shows some of the ways video games have influenced modern day, real life, weaponry.

The one I find most interesting is included in the video below. The idea is to recreate the Lancer, a weapon from Gears of War. Essentially it’s an assault rifle with a chainsaw stuck on the front for good measure. What worries me isn’t so much that they made it, but that the man below clearly has no common sense and should not be demoing something like this. I’m surprised all of his limbs are still attached to his body after the show he puts on below…

The rest of the videos are equally amusing, but this one just scares me!
