Compact Disc-Powered Paper Airplane Launcher


Written by Conner Flynn | July 27, 2015

I don’t know about you, but I haven’t touched a compact disc in years. They have to still be good for something besides drink coasters. Well, they are. It turns out they can make a great paper airplane launcher.

Crazy DIY created this clever CD-powered launcher for paper airplanes and demonstrates it in this sound effects-filled video. Sure, it takes some of the fun out of launching them the old fashioned way, but there is something very satisfying about seeing a paper plane launched in this way.

As if we weren’t lazy enough, now we can have our paper planes launched for us as well. It’s hard to tell how far it goes in the video, but I’m betting this machine helps get more distance than tossing by hand.
