If you want to remain one of the most popular custom weapons builders on YouTube, you need to keep innovating and improving your craft. Patrick Priebe's new WristBow Mk II is actually an update of his first wrist-worn crossbow that now features a semi-automatic reloading mechanism, allowing it to hold eight tiny darts…
You graduated from middle school and found your way to a desk job, but that doesn't mean you have to leave rubber-band-powered projectile launchers behind. YouTube's mist8k is here to show us how to build three weapons of mass distraction, using stuff you've already got at your desk. Now (goofing off at) work can be…

There's a war brewing over the use of 3D printers to make unlicensed guns and other firearms.

We've got nothing but undying love for slingshot master Joerg Sprave. But if we had to select a weapon of choice, it would probably be Patrick Priebe's saw blade-launching laser-sighted Blade Driver crossbow.
You know what's awesome? Wrist-mounted anything. Literally anything that's a thing is probably cooler on your wrist. Clocks? Yeah. Phones? Maybe. Ice cream cones? Sure! And homemade, laser-sighted crossbows? Yeah, I want a piece of that, and you do too.
Our appreciation for bald, vaguely Eastern European, totally insane slingshot purveyor Joerg Sprave is long-established and unbounded. And he apparently loves his fans right back, if this extremely dangerous, reasonably-sized death-by-wood-and-rubber contraption is any indication.
So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
The wormhole that produced the motel-thieving musketeer hasn't closed yet—two more time traveling brigands have appeared, this time holding up a post office with a crossbow. We expect a catapult raid against a 7-11 sometime over the weekend.
