LEGO Disc Thrower: Put Those Old Aol Discs to Good Use

 |  |  |  |  |  |  November 29, 2010


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. Philo calls his creation the Hammerhead, and I think it’s easy to see why:

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…
