This high-speed CD cannon is a killer way to destroy old CDs

Give a person a fish and they’ll eat for a day. Give a person a workshop full of tools and they’ll build an utterly amazing cannon that launches CDs and DVDs like a machine gun. If there’s a better way to destroy a stack of misburned CDs, the internet hasn’t seen it yet.

This creation was built by YouTuber JZSlenker and relies on a Harbor Freight angle grinder as well as a motorized arm to feed and launch each disc. When running at full speed it’s particularly terrifying, especially when you see the plastic shrapnel flying in every direction as each disc explodes against the wall. A ‘do not try this at home’ doesn’t really seem necessary here.
