Rubber Band Blaster Shoots 10 Rounds a Second

Office warfare has just been stepped up a notch and it’s time to hide in your cubicles! Enter the Rubber Band Blaster-32, a fully automatic rubber band handgun with switchable barrels for quick reloading.

It features a unique trigger release design that we haven’t seen before. By using a pull string release, [Dave] the inventor was able to load multiple rubber bands per barrel for individual firing, one by one. Hold down the trigger and as the firing wheel spins up, you can start shooting up to 10 rounds a second!

According to [Dave], reload time is around a minute per barrel, but the barrels can be stored loaded and ready to go, so pack a few mags and hang out behind the water cooler. That’s the last time [Bill] from accounting steals my stapler!

To see this puppy in action, sit tight after the break!

If that’s not enough to give you an upper hand in your cubicle wars, we don’t know what is! Mind you throwing in an automated Nerf sentry turret always helps…

    Sure firing is fun but it’ll be pain in ass when reloading.

    I guess the hackaday staff hasn’t discovered the amazing oggcraft yet. Let me send you on a wonderful journey starting with a machine gun using this technique for firing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeDXVN52cHI

  5. My two cents – maybe using a black background so you could actually see the rubber bands flying out…

    It’s all fun and games until somebody gets one in the eye. I know from personal experience when I was fooling around with my makeshift multiple rounds rubber band gun until it backfired… (It could be a candidate for the fail of the week :)
