You say potato cannon, I say potaser cannon

This is probably highly irresponsible. But stun guns aren’t readily available in Australia so I feel safe reposting it. Plus it’s available on Make Magazine’s YouTube channel. A stun gun triggered potato cannon. Brilliant. Science at its best. This one is basically for Tim. I reckon we should make a couple next year Tim, what say you?

Alternatively, we could put together a potato gatling gun.


Tim says:

I’m in. I certainly have some PVC pipe and some transformers lying around. Sounds like a fun challenge. Now I’m just trying to figure out how you’d get the Gatling gun to auto reload. And how much the potatoes would cost……

Amy says:

If you two do this please do it far, far away from anybody else. And don’t tell me about it.

Amy says:

And Nathan, stop encouraging him.
