Abstract

The goal of our project was to improve the current paintball firing system which is widely used both recreationally and competitively by millions of players. Our project aimed to increase the accuracy and range of the paintball system by researching, designing, building, and testing prototypes that could be incorporated into systems currently available to consumers through the use of gyroscopic stabilization and improved aerodynamic profile. The prototype designs created by this project could be refined and improved so they could be implemented in the paintball community, ultimately improving the quality and scope of its uses.
