This Rubber Band Gatling Gun Fires 14 Rounds Per Second

By Adam Clark Estes on at

Rubber band gatling guns are not a new invention, but good God, they keep getting better.

The latest and greatest iteration from 18-year-old Ukranian design student Alex Shpetniy fires a startling 14 rounds per second from its 16 barrels. That's 672 shots in total. You can do a lot of damage with 672 shots. And it's completely made of wood! Handsome.

Shpetniy built a prototype of his non-lethal Gatling gun late last year and recently fired up a Kickstarter campaign. At the time of writing, he's raised over £45,675 and absolutely crushed his £3,045 goal. The gun runs off of five AA batteries and comes in three different colours—birch, burnt wood, and black—each with its own rack. The best part? It only costs $85, or £52. [Kickstarter]
