Turn Up That Cube Farm Warfare A Notch With Match Rockets [Video]
It’s rough out there in cube land. Inter cube rivalries and pranks being pulled left right and center so what better way to get your own back than with tiny missiles of fire.
Steve Hoefer from Grathio Labs has all the lowdown on these subversive missiles of fun that you can make with nothing more than: a book of matches, a paperclip, and some tinfoil. You can get the full tutorial at his site but here’s a snippet of his explanation behind Match Missles:
This is one of my favorite projects. It’s fun, cheap, hands on, and educational. My brothers taught me how to make them when I was about nine years old, but I suspect it originally dates to a time when young boys carried everything they needed in their pockets: Matches, a bit of wire, and a foil gum wrapper. Over time bits of wire gave way to paper clips and pins, and gum apparently doesn’t come in foil wrappers any more, so we’ll make do with regular aluminum foil. Here’s the full how-to with a about two dozen rocket launches included because I was having too much fun
And of course this post wouldn’t be complete without a video showing how it all works.
Bombs away folks and remember it’s a dangerous world out there in cube land.
