Stupid invention: Bottle Rocket Launcher

Posted 08 October 2010 - 06:26 PM

I'm trying to create a bottle rocket launcher. I just found this nerf sniper lying around, and started shooting rockets with it. I'm planing on putting in one of those rocket launcher pads and a mini rocket with folding fins.

I thought this thread was going to be about actual stupid inventions (like the bumper dumper), not just nerf + fireworks + zippo + 13 year old = stupid invention (anything that has a 13 year old as a critical part is stupid, whether or not it's an invention).

Son, I used to do this with a wiffle ball bat and friends. We shot each other with them, busted my lip open one year.

This thread is just reminding me of all the stupid shenanigans I've done at a young age; such as playing tag with small packets of salt and peppers. They had to burst open on the eyes for the tag to count.

Ok, so now I have a cool trigger thingy, main launch tube thingy, some circuit boards to screw with, and a power system. I think I'm going to turn this into an actual project.

If you're into this kind of thing, look up the gyrojet.
