DIY Rail Gun
Who's crazy enough to make lethal homebrew weapons? Watch the video clip to find out...
As soon as we saw this video clip, there was no question that it would make it onto our blog. I mean how many other rail guns have you seen? Let alone DIY rail guns.
Colorado Springs, CO maker Ravi Gaddipati has spent the last year working on his own DIY railgun, and while it might not be as powerful as the Navy’s rail gun (read our original article here), it sure packs some power – 5.6kJ to be precise. The clip below shows Ravi’s homebrew weapon in action.
DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!!
So, don’t get the wrong idea, by no means are we suggesting that you go out and make yourself a rail gun. These things are highly dangerous (as is obvious from the clip) and highly illegal, or at least capable of being use in an illegal manner. For this reason we are not listing step by step instructions, although they are available on his site for the ultra inquisitive – http://rp181.110mb.com/index.php?p=1_30
