Sweet lord this thing would hurt.
The appeal of the Paintball Turret can pretty much be summed up in its inventor’s own words: “It shoots things.” What grabbed our attention, though, is just how sophisticated the contraption appears to be. Two years in development, Jared Bouck’s turret fires 34 balls per second (per second!) and is designed to be carried as a backpack for rapid deployment. Invent Geek also claims that it can be controlled via heads-up display from up to half a mile away. Full plans and a material list are promised as is a video demonstration. Until then, you’ll have to make due with the detailed assembly history just beyond the read link. This could change paint warfare and the tactics used by curmudgeonly neighbors to protect their lawns, forever.
This thing looks amazing… and with 34 paintballs per seccond it’s not something to be trifled with either. Anyhow, thanks Endgadget!
I can only imagine how much painful “testing” the original makers would have gone through… That’s alotta bruises.
Anyhow, Reijin out.
