My son was beside himself with joy of course, and we stayed up late Friday turning a mechanical pencil into a BB shooter and making a little paper clip gun out of an old wooden clothes pin I found in the base Impulse download with my son at Kepler's Books.
My son was beside himself with joy of course, and we stayed up late Friday turning a mechanical pencil into a BB shooter and making a little paper clip gun out of an old wooden clothes pin I found in the basement.
The paper clip shooter can be modified to shoot flaming matches, but I had to draw the line somewhere. But here's the thing and here's why this book is genius: This book is really a stealth physics book with a little bit of history mixed in.
Of course with that unfortunate title it's clearly targeted at hipster office drones, but I'm far too clever to fall for that. Though if I still worked in an office, I would most certainly have an array of catapults on my desk. So here's what the kids learned this weekend: Simple machines: Then we built some siege weapons two catapults , which led to a discussion about ancient warfare in general and Alexander the Great's siege on Tyre more specifically.
I found some diagrams of the machines used on Tyre in a history book and talked about how Alexander's engineers swung the balance of sieges toward the siegers and away from siegees. My son slept with the catapult he made out of less than 10 cents worth of popsicle sticks, rubber bands, and a plastic spoon on his pillow last night. Take that, Legos!

I remember that the trebuchet with a domestic battery as the counterweight was surprisingly effective and instructive. Marvellous diversion for a bored adult on a wet afternoon, or even curious kids with supervision. Those are definitely an adult projects! Fun but be careful with some Dec 25, Hitessh Panchal rated it it was amazing.
Amazing Small Projects! Am going to definitely Try some of these: Apr 25, Jbussen rated it did not like it Shelves: I checked this out thinking cubicle warfare. I suppose this would be a cool book for someone else, just not me. Why would I try to do this in the office?
Just make a slingshot from your fingers and a rubber band. If I wanted to make a projectile weapon, I don't need this book. My mind can come up with just as plausible devices with office materials. On the other hand if you have time to kill and just want to goof off, I guess this is for you.
With all this effort I'd rather build a potato gun, o I checked this out thinking cubicle warfare. With all this effort I'd rather build a potato gun, or a larger trebuchet or catapult. For what purpose?
If I just want to launch an item at a co-worker? I mean some of the stuff described here is downright dangerous!
