Ultra Bionic Blaster is an ingenious way of learning engineering. Construct an air-powered robotic glove that launches safe foam darts. While having fun constructing and using this devise children learn about pneumatics which is a technology that use pressurised air to perform work.
After you’ve built and tested your blaster, slide it on and strap it to your wrist. The first pull of the trigger causes the scissor arm to lift up the barrels and launch the first dart. Pull the trigger two more times to launch the next two darts. Grab some additional darts from the reserve clip under your wrist and reload. The blaster is entirely powered by your hand and the amazing pneumatic system — no batteries or motors required!
Turn the dial to rotate the two outer launchers for a wider spread. Adjust the location of the wrist strap to fit almost all hands. A full-colour, step-by-step manual guides you through assembling and using the blaster and provides fascinating scientific information about pneumatic systems and the physics of air. Compatible with many standard foam darts.

Troubleshooting? The Ultra Bionic Blaster is quite a complicated assembly and if you make a misstep in the assembly the product may not work correctly. Thames and Kosmos have put together a troubleshooting guide.
