Joerg Sprave has been at it again this month and created a lethal crossbow that fires modified toilet brushes, and has named it the Toilet Brush Revolver.
The Toilet Brush Revolver is capable of firing four brushes in quick succession (under 15 seconds) at roughly 81meters per second. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Toilet Brush Revolver project and see it in action.
The Toilet Brush Revolver is so powerful that it flies straight through a water melon, ripping a large hole through the entire fruit. Joerg explains a little more about the mechanics of the awesome Toilet Brush Revolver he’s created.
“The 130 g (4,6 oz) “arrows” fly with almost 81 m/s = 266 fps – that is about 425 Joules = 313 ft-lbs of energy. In terms of energy, that is about the same as a .38 Special round – in terms of momentum, it is more than four times stronger than the .38 Special. “
