Surely many of you, if you have seen the movie of Despicable Me 2, you will hear the Pedo Blaster, a minion gun that fired farts. The Pedo Blaster has been a very popular toy from the movie that has not only been seen in theaters but has also been sold on Amazon. As well, A fan of the movie has managed to create a similar Pedo Blaster from a Raspberry Pi and an ultrasound sensor that makes the fart sound.
The structure of the Pedo Blaster is based on Lego pieces so we can even imitate the colors and the shape without needing a 3D printer or creating different frames for it. In addition, the trigger is created with the pieces of a Lego game that had a motor and a button, so the cost of the Pedo Blaster is more than economical.
The creation of the Pedo Blaster pistol with Libre hardware was the idea of a father who, in addition to being a fan of the movie, wanted his son to have fun with this peculiar toy. So he began to build it with things that are at home, such as Lego pieces, the Raspberry Pi and in this case he had an ultrasound sensor lying around that he wanted to use in an experiment.
The Pedo Blaster only needs Lego pieces and a Raspberry Pi
The good thing about all this is that the father not only announced the Pedo Blaster of the minions but also uploaded the files, construction processes, etc ... to the web so that anyone can build their own Pedo Blaster.
Although it is a very fun experiment, the truth is that I do not see it to be done only by children, perhaps there is the good thing about the Pedo Blaster, that anyone can use it to teach electronics to children. Still, to electronic fans and parents, I recommend that you stop by la webThe Pedo Blaster is worth a look.
