Shooting... ahem... um... "Thingies" with the Slingshot

Countless fans asked for it. Amazon sells it (in the "drugstore" category) at reasonable prices. The shape was too good to avoid it any longer. Small electrical massage tools - can they be launched effectively? We HAD to find out.

The Slingshot Channel brings you a specifically invented new launcher (nicknamed the "Launcher of Love") that can fire not one, but two of these 28mm D.I.L.D.O. missiles.

Unfortunately, none of the youtubers that suggested this kind of test volunteered to be the catchbox, so certified ballistic gelatin was used instead. Flying at over 50 m/s, the 25 cm block was no problem for the vibrating golden bullets.

The weapon is also fairly accurate, thanks to a very adequate new aiming device :)

This not entirely serious episode includes footage recorded at 300 and 500 frames per second, recorded with the Olympus iSpeed LT camera.

A "The Slingshot Channel" production!
