Under the hood investigates.
A few months ago, Joerg (I feel like we’re on a first-name basis with him at this point, right?) had the idea to shoot Oreos out of a pump-action slingshot. It was a fun time, but it was not as deadly as he would have liked. So round two of the Oreo challenge involves oreo-sized metal washers. Not surprisingly, they cause more destruction.
It’s the realisation of every seven-year-old boy’s dream — a bulldozer on a tank chassis with a machine gun. Known as the Terrier, this ditch-digging combat engineer vehicle is as adaptable as its canine namesake.
Any mischief-maker worth his property damage knows a thing or two about using spud-based projectile weaponry.Our good pal Joerg Sprave is no different, though his weapon of choice uses wood and rubber bands instead of PVC and hairspray.
Joerg Sprave is expanding his horizons and moving The Slingshot Channel into a new era. He had blacksmith James Helm make him a small sword and this demo is a relaxing break for all of us. Just some good old fashioned coconut decapitation to test the blade. Refreshing! Oh, and the hilt of the sword also has a built-in slingshot. Baby steps.
OK, so this should be labelled with extreme hazard warnings or something. A crazy laser enthusiast actually built his own lightsabre capable of burning straight through things.
According to a confidential report prepared for the Pentagon, Chinese hackers have stolen American blueprints for some of the most sensitive advanced weapons systems. Citing the report and sources within the defence industry, the Washington Post explains that hackers have stolen designs for “more than two dozen major weapons systems”.
Yesterday, Luke covered the NSW Police’s press conference discussing the dangers of the “Liberator”, a single-shot gun one can create themselves with a CAD file and 3D printer. Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione mentioned during the presser that the organisation had printed a few of the weapons itself and tested them, the results of which you can view in this video.
3D printing might only now be hitting the mainstream, but people have been making things out of other things for years. Guns, of course, are no exception and while all this talk of fashioning firearms out of plastic and magic has raised eyebrows, it appears we might be getting ahead of ourselves, according to one Australian expert.
