Genius invents machine gun that makes and fires paper airplanes

This German genius has created one of the most awesome inventions in recent memory, one that will bring incredible voice to humanity: A fully automated paper airplane machine gun. Yes, people: A machine gun that folds plain paper sheets into airplanes and then fire them across the sky.


He fully designed it and then 3D printed most of it, he says. I really hope that he starts some crowdfunding thing for mass manufacturing. Or at least share his plans on the internet.

And someone give this dude a Nobel already, please.
