Rubber band gatling guns are not a new invention, but they keep getting better. The latest and greatest iteration from 18-year-old Ukranian design student Alex Shpetniy fires a startling 14 rounds per second from its 16 barrels. That’s 672 shots in total. You can do a lot of damage with 672 shots. And it’s completely made of wood! Handsome.
Shpetniy built a prototype of his non-lethal Gatling gun late last year and recently fired up a Kickstarter campaign. With just 10 days to go, he’s raised over $US75,000 and absolutely crushed his $US5000 goal. The gun runs off of five AA batteries and comes in three different colours — birch, burnt wood, and black — each with its own rack. The best part? It only costs $US85. [Kickstarter]
