Instructables in Popular Science magazine Answered

Picture of

My Bungee Bazooka along with crreed's Grappling Hook Launcher were noticed by the folks at Popular Science magazine, and they published snippets about both projects in the March 2012 issue (page 66). Here they are at popsci.com.

I thought this was awesome!

Congratulations! They did a little blurb like that on my proton pack for their Halloween issue last year. It feels really cool to have something you've created actually get put into print!
