I can see this type of weapon technology going mainstream someday once the parts can be shrunk and made more efficient:

Gauss-GunAs you can see from the video, the gun is quite complicated and it’s not that powerful.  Cool DIY project though nevertheless.

OH NOES UNTRACEABLE MURDER BULLETS WHICH CAN BE MADE FROM HOUSEHOLD METALS!  That’s what news headlines will read when these become more powerful and mainstream and looking for a spot on the “ban” or “restricted” lists.  Hopefully we can ban spoons, forks, soup cans, and anything else that could be made into a deadly projectile for this high electrical capacity assault weapon.

You can check out more pictures and info over on the DIY guy’s website Delta-V Engineering.
