Turn a Drill Into a Shotgun with This Spinning Disc of Doom

Slingshot psycho Joerg Sprave has done some of his best work with rubber, but there's more to slingin' than elastic. All it takes is a powerful drill and centrifugal force to whip up a whole different breed of slinger.

With the aid of power tools and the hidden strength of spirals, Sprave has managed to pack a massive, ball-launching mechanism into a disc of doom by curling the lengthy launch track in on itself. It's a strategy that could someday be used to launch things into space, but in the meantime, thwacking balls of steal against a target is pretty good.

Just imagine what he could do with a giant construction drill. On second thought, maybe we should leave that to the professionals.

Pffft... that's nothing. Back in the '20s they were going to launch rockets into space with a big one of those.
