The RBmG (Rubber Band Machine Gun) is a fully automatic, rapid fire gun that shoots rubber bands
like nobody's business. Press the trigger and a battery powered electric motor operates to fire
ammo continuously while you hold the trigger. Finally, here's your chance to "fire your gun
in the air while shouting 'Arrhhhhhh'."
The RBmG ships as a kit of laser cut wood parts that you can assemble in about 30 minutes. Tools required are screwdrivers and pliers. Not only is it fun to fire rubber bands in full rock and roll mode, the kit is a great opportunity for education, hidden in a fun form. Learn about electric motors, and simple machines, then blast some soda cans into oblivion.
Everyone at some point has loaded a rubber band onto their index finger, pulled it back and let it fly. When I was 10 or so I built a "gun" that could fire 20 rubber bands using some two by fours and clothes pins. Many years later, I saw some rubber band guns in Japan. There is a surprising subculture there with building rubber band guns. Not just toys but genuine works of art.It made me remember my clothes pin special, and I decided to revisit that childhood invention. A few months of trying various harebrained ideas later, and the RBmG project is ready. This has been one of the most fun projects that we have worked on, and after all is said and done, that is really what motivates us to do these projects; being creative and having some laughs.
The RBmG offered on Kickstarter was the 10'th version. Below are some sketches and prototypes of the design's evolution.
We have embraced wholeheartedly the idea of small scale "garage" manufacturing. We are a tiny startup company of creative, imaginative folk determined to make quality products, and most importantly, to have fun doing it. With the tools available today, computer design, laser cutters, and 3D printers, it is possible for "the little guy" to carve out a place. We think it's a really exciting time for small businesses despite the current economic problems.
