Rick has a lot of other cool projects. He’s got a cool two arm minigun prop (cache) (looks like Monev the Gale), A remote controlled submarine (cache), and a really cool telemetry suit (cache) for collecting upper body movement data.
For completeness’ sake you can check out Monty’s Miniguns for information on other paintball miniguns and miniguns in general.
