Here’s a DIY Laser-guided Slingshot
by Mark R
The slingshot is one of those devices that hasn’t changed much since its invention however many years ago. Of course, leave it to DIY inventors to give something a technological upgrade to something that probably doesn’t need a technological upgrade.
As you can see from the picture, this DIY guy has created a slingshot with a laser sight. Its construction looks relatively simple, and it has a special handle to store his pistachio ammo.
Apparently, it does actually improve his accuracy, even though the laser sight is located on the side of the slingshot fork and not the center. I would have instinctively put it in the center, but I’m guessing there is a reason for that construction. You can see a video of how to construct one of these bad boys after the jump.
Yeah, I’m not certain if you would want to make one of these things for a kid, because he or she might use it. I guess this is something an adult has to make just to prove that he or she can do it.
I can’t help but wonder what other child’s weapon would work well with a laser sight. How about a spitball launcher with a laser targeting function? Maybe that’s the next DIY video.
