Send Some Dangerous Airmail With These Weaponized Paper Planes

We've all done our fair share of chucking paper airplanes at friends. And maybe, if you're a real engineer, you've made some clever, paper-folding modifications that let your plane do a loop—or better yet actually land on target. Joerg Sparve has turned his eye towards those paper aircraft, and needless to say, the outcome can do damage.


Slowly improving from standard plane to all-out slingshot-powered flechette with custom-hammered metal frame, Sprave takes the concept to its extreme, and the result isn't something you'd want to lob at your coworkers from across the office. Unless those guys are assholes, but still, stick with the pure paper, ok? [The Slingshot Channel]

When I was a kid I used to make these but with straws and hunt for small animals with them, I never really killed, not even hit a single rat or pigeon with it thou.

A friend went a lil bit crazier and built his own crossbow.

Edit: The only thing I remember hiting was one of my neighbors on its back, that thing got stuck and had to be pulled :S we used small black hair clips as the piercing metal.
