Intro: Knex Pedal Activated Landmine

Hi, I have seen a lot of Landmines on this site, but I havent seen any that is actually activated by someone stepping on it, most are activated by tripwires, so I decided to change that, here it is, My Knex Pedal Activated Landmine, when your victim steps on the pedal, that releases a pin which sets off a grenade, which then explodes, hurting your victim. It has an ok blast radius, but it really does not
need a large blast radius since for it to go off, someone has to step on it, which means they would be right beside it. Well, here you go.

    I know this is a little late alright it's a lot late but why is there a motor on it good idea anyway

    The motor acts as a counterweight, so that when you step on it doesn't flop to one side, although a different design of this can eliminate the need for it.

    awesome project. I love the idea of the activation by stepping. It would be even cooler if the grenade exploded when you stop stepping on the pad. One of my favorite, suscribed

    Sure, I will post an instructable, also, you may be able to put it under the carpet, as long as the carpet is lightweight

    I will be working on that as well, I was thinking black tape, which is good if it is dark.

    Very innovative design. I like how you broke away from the norm. Maybe add tan connectors as "feet" to grip the ground.
