Stick 200 sheets of A5 paper into the back of this machine gun and instead of firing bullets when you pull the trigger, it will unleash a barrage of up to 120 paper airplanes every minute.


Dieter Michael Krone’s paper airplane folding machine first appeared back in 2014, but since then he has vastly improved its design and performance. Built from a combination of 3D-printed components and purchased parts, the completely custom creation, now known as the PFM A5 v2.0, is the least intimidating machine gun you’ve ever seen—unless you’re a teacher at the front of a classroom finding yourself suddenly being bombarded with hundreds of paper planes.
