Here’s further proof that you can build anything out of LEGO.  LUGNET member Philo made this awesome disc thrower a couple of years ago, and I think it’s still a fun project for LEGO enthusiasts since optical media is just getting more and more obsolete.

The Hammerhead propels discs at about 13 mph through an average distance of 20 inches. Those may not be mind-blowing numbers, but seeing the Hammerhead in action it’s obvious that this thing could be used as a weapon:

Check out Philo’s website for more info on the Hammerhead. I think Philo should make a portable, gun-shaped version of the Hammerhead, with an adjustable receptacle so it can shoot out other kinds of obsolete media as well – floppy disks, cassette tapes, VHS tapes…
