Pinch: A Darn Cool Salt & Pepper Shaker

2-year Coil Gun

Impressive Coil Gun Build (video)


This is a real world Coil Gun.  It uses electricity and I believe magnets to fire bullet like projectiles (made of magnetic material) at uncanny speeds. Supposedly it can achieve a comparable velocity to that of a .45 handgun, but as Make points out this isn’t to be believed since...
