EXPLODING NINJA STAR FRICTION BOMBS! I LOVE IT.

author

yeah, an explanation, I call them friction bombs, because the energy that sends the Popsicle sticks flying is stored as potential energy in the bending wood, and friction is what keeps it in tact until dislodged.

author

Screw friction, tie it to something explosive!!!:D

someone made a frame bomb out of 2X4's it was HUGE, but it couldn't explode because it had too much friction.

author

unbentcrayfish (author)2009-03-03

if you light if on fire, on one side, it will basicly explode

author
steed1172 (author)2009-02-26

author
Father Christmas (author)2008-11-28

author
emuman4evr (author)2008-09-07

Ugh very very hard to make.

author
emuman4evr (author)2008-09-07

Now I have something to do with my 2 boxes of 1000 piece Popsicle sticks.

author
bluknight (author)2008-03-02

You can also make these with like half the popsicle sticks, if I remember correctly. I must agree with the fun to throw bit, If you throw it hard enough it explodes. :P

author
n0ukf (author)bluknight2008-03-29

You could also make a square one (instead of star) with just 6 sticks, same over/under method.

author
smeeves (author)n0ukf2008-04-12

those ones are awesome! my grandma taught me a long time ago and called them exploding frisbees.

author
Toolsy98 (author)smeeves2008-08-21

exploding? lol coool

author
hannahheartsyou (author)smeeves2008-05-01

my friend taught me to make this but so it looked like a fan. We threw it and it busted it a light XD

author
Toolsy98 (author)hannahheartsyou2008-08-21

lol cool

author
goider (author)2008-02-10

it isn't actually that hard to make just make sure everything is over/under/over or under/over/under and you should be okay ps these are fun to throw

author
Toolsy98 (author)goider2008-08-21

lol ya

Nice idea, terrible Instructable. Some people just don't like watching the video, so if you take a little time to explain your steps at each picture you would get a much better instructable. Maybe you could explain where you got that much popsicle sticks, who taught you to build it... just some more background to give it a bit more depth beyond just how you did it.

author
Toolsy98 (author)Saint2008-08-21

yeah

hellstudios (author)Saint2008-07-28
