Small Foldable Crossbow + Side Project

Picture of

1st Image: This is what the current prototype looks like, when unfolded. It can pierce through a piece of cardboard using its 1x3 rubber band string. It actually is pretty sturdy, although he blue flexi's could be considered exotic pieces =/

2nd Image: This is what it looks like when folded up, when the 4 blue flexi rods are made loose, it will try to fold up.

3rd,4th,5th Images: This is what I made in an attempt to make a crossbow even stronger, this one uses 8 strings of 5 rubber bands; 2 strings per wheel. It currently does not have a trigger and it is not possible to fire it without it, because it is impossible to draw back.

What keeps the arms from folding back when the RB's are pulled back?

Wicky (author)DJ Radio2009-06-30

The four blue flexi rods do and no, they don't bend a lot.
