YouTube's Craziest Inventor Built a Giant Sword-Launching Slingshot

Amateur life-risker Joerg Sprave has successfully built custom slingshots capable of firing everything from bowling balls, to Christmas trees, to lethal Lego bricks. His latest creation, a slingshot that can launch full-size swords, is as ludicrous-sounding as it is awesome to see in action.


Sprave’s slingshots are mostly built from wood, but the giant elastics needed to propel a sword that can weigh upwards of four pounds resulted in a weapon that was on the brink of destroying itself before it was actually fired. If Sprave has any plans of one-upping this creation, which seems to be his obsession, he’s going to need to switch to something other than lumber for his home brew arsenal.

Thanks, Joerge, but we don’t really need that.
