1..2..3.. Potato Launch!


Guns- you see them at TV, and even live or you may have one yourself. But guns using bullets are so old-fashioned now…

How about a potato gun? Or potato cannon, in this case…

I found a video recently from MakeMagazine (with the famous kipkay presenting the show)  about making a potato cannon. The principle is simple: it uses a combustion chamber filled with ordinary spray deodorant that, at a spark,  explodes and pushes a potato through a longer tube..

Here’s the video :

I think I’ll build one myself in the future :).
