$10 + 10 minutes = lots of fun

This was a cheap, fun, and quick project. I don't think I have ever made anything so quickly, which resulted in so much fun as this. I started this 3D print before I left for work yesterday. It was ready and waiting for me when I got home from work. Two $0.99 3/8 dowels and some surgical tubing was all that was needed to complete the build. 

It has a range of ~50 meters. I used a binary search strategy to find the optimal angle for releasing the shot.

  1. These take almost no effort to print. The print is fast, and requires little plastic, and I have plenty of left over surgical tubing. If anyone would like me to print them out a set (or the origonal BIC pen version) let me know.
