Wait Til They Get Creative


Well, after my rocket launcher example the subject of functional, rapid-prototyped weapons came up on several blogs that linked to my entry. It also came up again after a more recent entry of mine updating that earlier effort. The issue also came up when the RepRap project was first announced; and I expect it will be raised repeatedly until at some point it reaches the evening news. And now it might make the MSM. Via this entry on We Make Money Not Art, comes word of one working example of an rp’d weapon. While I have no doubt that there have existed previous examples somewhere, this is the first one I’ve seen. Took long enough.

You can see the full photostream of images from the Royal College of Art project that spawned this thing at this Link.
