This is why I dislike Adam Savage's side projects:

"I was toying with making it airsoft, but it's not that thrilling to shoot something out of it."

No, Adam. It's really thrilling to shoot, it's not thrilling to shoot plastic with air. Put at least some .22 action in there and now you're talkin'

He is the ultimate nerd I can only dream of being.

Now a real killer, when he picked up the ZF-1, would have immediately asked about the little red button on the bottom of the gun
 
2012-05-18 09:25:05 PM
Let me know when he starts whipping up clones of LeeLoo.

Funny thing is, the first time I saw the movie I did ask that question

I think he meant airsoft guns are a more than underwhelming, not shooting stuff out of it in general.

Just hand it over Adam

Fundamental difference between a prop builder like Adam and a mechanical engineer like me...

I think I could build a munition that could self guide to strike a target behind the shooter. I just don't know if I could make it below .50 caliber at this point. And the whole thing probably wouldn't look like the prop because prop's and prototypes never look like the finished product.

/But the red button would detonate the magazine

That was actually pretty damn cool, well worth watching

I used to admire what he had accomplished on the show.

But then I heard him cussing his way through that atheist speech and decided he is just another hater.

Its a shame really, intelligent but too ignorant to realize you have to let people have a culture with other people they identify with. Religion is in most cases the most basic cultural grouping not dependent on race. Let people have their beliefs and they are happy. Force them to admit things they reject and you just make enemies out of them.

Which was really his point, to make enemies of religious zealots

Dang, that gun looks awkward to use even by movie prop standards.

That's funny. I thought his point was that we shouldn't be making laws and running a country based on freedom of religion (in part), based on religious dogma. To force people to accept one way of thinking because an invisible sky wizard in a book says it's the right way.
Maybe it's just me.

This reminds me of a video of him talking about his efforts to create a replica Maltese Falcon. The man is driven, if nothing else.

Voila, the ZF-1. It's light; handle's adjustable for easy carrying; good for righties and lefties; breaks down into four parts; undetectable by X-ray; ideal for quick discreet interventions. A word on firepower. Titanium recharger; 3000-round clip with bursts of 3 to 300. With the replay button, another Zorg invention, it's even easier. One shot...and replay sends every following shot to the same location. And to finish the job, all the Zorg oldies but goodies. Rocket launcher... arrow launcher with exploding or poisonous gas heads, very practical... our famous net launcher... the always-efficient flamethrower. My favorite... And for the grand finale, the all-new 'Ice-cube System'.

Interesting looking prop from one of the worst movies ever put on film.

I liked the original of that movie... the cabby story from "Heavy Metal."

Feather vaned rocket propelled munitions with an explosive charge. But far far far from Nobel Prize material. I doubt I could get the turn radius down as tight as in the film.

Instead I'll return to treating rare-ish books like junk bonds for a living.

Adam was looking a bit thin in that video. Was it just the apron or different camera, or has he lost quite a bit of weight?

The gun isn't even finished.

They just spent 8 minutes talking about getting parts and going to conventions.

Or do what the original prop makers did, and mount an AK47 inside it.

Neondistraction: This reminds me of a video of him talking about his efforts to create a replica Maltese Falcon. The man is driven, if nothing else.


It's a TED Talk. I happen to have just watched it. It starts out with him making a replica of a dodo's skeleton. The dodo turns out fine, but he's not completely happy with the Falcon, due to his not thinking things all the way through.

For a prop that will be shown off at conventions?
Aiming from the hip and shooting a few rounds is fun, but not enough to justify the legal hassles and loss of other functions.

Adam Savage always comes off to me as THE biggest tool in the universe. I just don't understand the hero worship I see for him on Fark. He's not a nerd, he's a dumbass. He's not cool, he's a massive MASSIVE attention whore. I can see him becoming physically uncomfortable if he's not getting enough attention.

I feel like I'm on crazy pills. Every time he opens his mouth I want to punch him.

So because some theists are assholes, you want to join the bunch?

Just want the world needs: another sect belittling the truth of others and thinking their truth is the "only true path".

Please, we don't need more of that shiat.

Go not believe somewhere else.

Corporate Self: Go not believe somewhere else.


Sorry, man. Didn't mean to offend you.

Although... why are you so upset by what I posted? Is calling out archichris for getting all affronted because Adam Savage isn't afraid to say what he thinks so offensive? I mean, neither I nor HeartBurnKid said nothing negative about theism itself or theists in general, yet you are still just so gosh-darned offended, aren't you? Did our incredibly mild mockery of archichris's butthurt really upset you that much?

It's almost as though the mere mention of atheism is something you find offensive. Atheists are assholes merely for not being silent about it.

archichris: Let people have their beliefs and they are happy.


That sounds like a great plan for an ant farm, or some other scenario where there's a distinct and unchallengeable ruling class. But unless you've got a plan to keep the proletariat down I'm not sure you should be feeding them such powerful propaganda -- a million idiots working towards the same goal is not a force to be dismissed.
