I dont think that stupid video ever shot off a rubber band, I think that guy was just using the gun to play with himself.

Sorry, that should be DISINTEGRATOR, because sometimes products genuinely have earned the right to be capitalised. So, the DISINTEGRATOR is a rubber band gun like no other.

The British-made gun can fire 40 rounds a second from 24 revolving barrels. It's got a maximum range of 22 feet, takes five hours to charge, and then only lasts for around seven minutes. If you had one of these, your workmates would never flick rubber bands at your ears again. And it even comes with a tripod. Genius. There's a YouTube video after the jump.

The article seems extremely lacking or facts and pretty inaccurate.

I believe it takes the BATTERIES 5 hours to charge and that will run the spinning motors for about 7 minutes.

This thing has a battery powered motor spinning two rubberband cannons with 12 barrels each. looks like each barral can hold ~12-20 rubber bands.

12-20 x 24 = 288 - 480 rubber bands.

So, estimate about 10 seconds of rubber band mayhem and an hour to reload the damn thing.

WANT!

But only if it comes with a guy to load it for me...
 
2008-01-16 03:46:04 PM  
Yeah, as has been said - it's great the first time after you load it ... but then you have to farking re-load it. No thanks.

Wake me when it takes clips.

Oh, I had a pair of those pistols as a kid.
There was this booth that always sold them (all shapes and sizes, including the BIG Gatling gun one) every year at the Texas state fair.

Cool to see they are still around :)


/wonders if the gun are maybe someplace at his parents' house
//wouldn't mind having them back :)

FTA:

"...video after the jump."


So, does "the jump" mean "the end of this sentence?"

Why do they do that? I'm confused.

Otherwise Just Fine: Why do they do that? I'm confused.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=after+the+jump (new window)

'The Jump' in online media refers to a large block of inline advertising separating a page of text. It is a form of advertisment commonly used by bloggers and tech-press, but creates a major distraction for readers. The web-equivalent of the commercial break.
The use of the phrase "More after the jump..." signifies that a reader should scroll down past the adblock for further on the story, as with "More after this word from our sponsors" on television.

"After the jump" basically means "after the block of ads" now.

It's become pretty mangled from its original usage.

Don't people have anything else to do all day than tool around with going no where pastimes? Oh, wait...

My Grandfather used to make rubber band guns. He used old red rubber innertubes cut into large rubber bands for the ammo. The guns were plywood with a wooden clothes pin glued to the back end. They shot a long way and hurt like hell if you got hit by them. Only one shot, but fun as anything to play with.

I need to make a couple again just to keep the technology alive.

Meh, at my office we just play paintball.
