cup

Meh… company owners taking safety risks to test their stuff used to shock me.  Now I just think it’s dumb:

Nutshellz-Ballistic-TestI hope those weren’t just biking shorts he had on underneath, and rather some sort of bulletproof underwear just incase the shooter missed or the bullet deflected.

Yea sure it was only .22 LR in the video, but it stops much more as shown in other videos on their YouTube channel if you click through.

We all know the main reason for this video is to have websites pick it up and blow it out of proportion, good or bad.  I think doing something kind of stupid on camera isn’t worth as much as it used to be.  Now if you want a big payoff you need to do something exceptionally retarded, for maximum butthurt and viral potential.

The other reason for the video is when people talk about it they will mention and link to the the company Nutshellz, where you can go pick one up if you’re interested.  Haha damn I fell hook, line, and sinker on all points didn’t I?

Is a cup that stops bullets needed for sports?  Probably not, as energy dissipation from something large hitting it I’d assume is the main concern *he postulated as he shoveled more Cheetos into his Mountain Dew hole*.   The Level 2 version for “police and military” I’m sure provides a very real benefit to those guys considering you could actually get shot in that area.  I still don’t know how good of shape you’d be in though if it deflected the bullet in to your femoral artery.  Oh well at least you’d still have your dick if you lived.

Thoughts?

I’m no ceramics expert, but that trigger looks like it could be fragile.  I picture raising a full glass of hot coffee to my mouth with my finger on the trigger, then all of the sudden it breaks off and I get 3rd degree burns to the sack.  I guess that’s a reason to practice good trigger discipline even on cups.

Portland’s Kamp Grizzly developed a steam-punk style pneumatic cupcake cannon and set the stage for eating frosty delights at 120psi. The blasting buffet was documented in at 700fps coming off the Phantom HD Gold.

Uh.. AWESOME!

Where does one sign up for something like this?  My cupcake intake has been frighteningly low lately. :P

I would have liked to see more of the actual cannon because it looks pretty badass with all the copper and what not. Steampunk has such fun design aspects to it.

Unsurprisingly, the camera that google uses in the slow motion video I recently posted is way better than this one.
