This is cool technology, not a recommendation but just recognition that this is very neat tech.  

See the October issue of Wired Magazine for a great article on how this was developed and some hacks for current Nerf guns.

It’s the highest capacity NERF blaster ever. The N-STRIKE ELITE HAIL-FIRE tops out at an astounding 144-dart capacity (with the purchase of additional clips and darts). It holds up to 8 clips, and delivers a semi-auto barrage of darts as fast as you can pull the trigger. When you’ve got the HAIL-FIRE, you’ve got the ultimate in high-capacity blasting!

N-STRIKE ELITE blasters are the ultimate in blaster performance. Featuring upgraded distance and the revolutionary Elite Dart, this is the final word in today's blaster technology. The HAIL-FIRE blaster puts elite dart capacity under your control with a unique rotating ammo rack that can carry more darts than any other NERF blaster! Plus, motorized semi-auto lets you unload on your target at high speed! Massive capacity and supreme speed combine to make this blaster the ultimate upgrade to any arsenal. Load up and dominate with the ultra-high-capacity HAIL-FIRE blaster!

This is copied directly from the Hasbro site, I did not get any compensation for this post, I just think it is darn cool tech. 
If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
