This guy made a 3D-printed rubber band Gatling gun that fires 48 shots in mere seconds

  1. The Internet last month treated us to a custom-built, adult-sized Nerf gun that swapped out the soft darts for plungers stuffed inside pool noodles. Now, we’ve got another childhood favorite that’s been injected with steroids – the rubber band gun.

    Matthew Davis designed and 3D printed the Arcus, a fully automatic Gatling gun capable of firing off 48 rubber bands in just a few seconds. This sure beats the old fashioned method of flinging bands with your fingers although I’m sure it takes a good bit of time to reload the monster.

    Davis has even uploaded the details on how to make your own rubber band shooter at home… so long as you have a 3D printer, of course.

    To me, it seems like some people have far too much time on their hands.
