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…

Shut up and take my money!
how much do it calls????????????tell me now!!!!!!
Sure firing is fun but it’ll be pain in ass when reloading.
Maybe someone could sell preloaded drums? Maybe with a refund on the empty drum :P
erm… if you look at his reloading video it takes about 30 seconds – besides he has pre-loadable replacement drums. Still… how many terrorists are you going kill with rubber bands?
7 of them. if you hit a terrorist with enough rubber bands, you will kill them. I need abut 90 of these drums please.
That would be a horrible way to die. Perfect for the intended target!
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
That was a truly epic journey, thank you.
I just found out about him through this page. The guy’s a genius!
My two cents – maybe using a black background so you could actually see the rubber bands flying out…
“You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”
Yes, I want one.
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 :)
I LIkes it!
