We’ve seen a good share of Youtube videos showing how much some guys love building bonkers devices which blow stuff up, because why not? This Youtuber just constructed a giant electromagnetic railgun which fires rounds with 27,000 joules of force –– one joule is approximately the amount of energy needed to lift an apple about three feet against the Earth’s gravity.
The incredible weapon ‘uses current to generate extreme magnetic fields that propel a conductive projectile to high speeds’. So, basically, if you get hit by a shot from this bad boy, you’re pretty much going to be vaporised into thin air!
The video below shows this backyard gun in action. It’s both an impressive and terrifying invention Watch:
Whoa! That’s a powerful gun! It’s definitely not one to try at home. What do you think of this homemade device?
