Laser-Guided Slingshot is Do It Yourself Project for the Family

As a kid, having a slingshot is one of the coolest things to show off to your friends. Even if it is, usually, just a piece of wood, some rubber, and something small enough that you can fling at some unsuspecting person. The idea is cool, in of itself. But, what if someone decided to make it better? That's exactly what KipKay asked, and then he went about and actually made it happen. So, now instead of a hunk of wood and some rubber, you now have some aluminum chunks, some rubber, and a laser-guided system.

This new slingshot was a do it yourself project from KipKay, which would initially make it a one-of-a-kind item, but he's happy to show you how he made it in the video, which you can watch below. So, if you're someone who likes to put things together, which include lasers, and you've missed your slingshot of your childhood days, here's a great way to bring it back to life, with a nice enhancement.

The design features chunks of aluminum, and a single 6mm red laser diode. The whole thing is run by a pair of AA batteries, which are tucked away inside. What's better, though, is that the handle works as a storage compartment for your ammunition, too. Go ahead and check out the video below, to see the laser-guided slingshot in action.
