The Vacuum Bazooka

In the spirit of recycling, why buy a brand new bazooka when you can fashion one out of everyday household items?

The Naked Scientist's Kitchen Specialist, Dave Ansell, presents the pinnacle in home security with his custom build vacuum bazooka. Utilising plastic pipes, tubes and foam covered projectiles, the vacuum bazooka really is a weapon fit for modern warfare (or science demonstrations).

Looking under the hood, this unit boasts 1300W of fully unadulterated Hoover power, a choice of loading mechanisms (from hand fed, to chain fed) and a firing range of over 30 metres.
