engineering

To ultimately shoot someone in an environmentally friendly way:

hahah the video is pretty good… electrocution, fires, a dancing unibrow etc…

You can check out his blog post on how to build it… but a word of caution, you might want to do your own calculations. ;)

Building-A-Coil-GunI believe coil guns have great potential for civilian use in the future once we can reduce the size of some of the components, and increase the current.  Someone actually did build a portable rifle version that seemed to be fairly powerful, which I blogged about a while back. We definitely aren’t quite there yet though…

Thoughts?

*You’re strolling down the street… soccer moms are grabbing their kids and glaring at you… the police are called… you end up face down on the concrete…*

That is one scenario that wouldn’t likely happen if you were able to have one of these in the US and open carry it.

OpenCarryThe Swiss Mini Gun

It shoots 2.34 mm calibre rim fire ammunition which we have developed for it and which is the smallest rim fire ammunition in the World.

According to the information page:

It is NOT available in the US because it does not meet the minimum size prequisites according to the ATF Form 4590 criteria for weapons.

Interestingly enough in Canada it is apparently 100% legal, and is not even classified as a firearm.

Price – 6’300 Swiss France (which is equal to roughly $6200 US !!!#$!@#$) wow.. that’s pricey, not to mention it also says ammo is $10 US each shot!

Nevertheless it’s definitely feat of mechanical engineering!
