We have talked in the past about the wild slingshots that Joerg Sprave builds. His latest slingshot uses a heating element to keep the rubber band at its ideal power. When you draw the rubber band back on a normal slingshot and then don’t shoot it, right away, the band cools and the slingshot loses power.
Sprave designed a slingshot with an enclosed box that has a heating element inside. That heating element is powered by a rechargeable battery. With this system, you can draw the rubber band back and then lock it to fire later without losing power.
The heating elements are controlled by a switch on the slingshot and will warm the rubber band up to its original power. This is pretty cool and you can see the slingshot and why it works in the video below.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
