Burnt Weapons Rubber Band Guns

Burnt Weapons is a new venture aimed at delivering fun laser cut toys to the masses.

Rubber band guns are a classic, and sooner or later every classic gets either brought back,
hacked, or improved on. The inspiration for this project came when I started seeing Youtube
videos for custom rubber band guns.

I made a rubber band gun for my dad for Christmas from a design I found online. The pistol
looked really nice, but it was a pain to assemble – I stabbed myself through the hand with a
screwdriver trying to put it together.

I wanted a design that was simple to assemble and had multiple firing modes. By using a
laser cutter instead of a scroll saw, I was able to dial in the precision and speed up
production. After months of design and “prototyping” (a lot of playing around) I finally have
three models that I'm proud of.

The 3 Burnt Weapons models:

The Enforcer: a basic semi-automatic, five-shot pistol with a simple step action. The simplicity of the design was really attractive to me - it only has one moving section.

The Destroyer: fully automatic and holds at least 16 rubber bands, depending on the size of the ammo you use. Pennies in the mechanism make a satisfying "clack-clack-clack" sound when you fire.

The Annihilator: similar mechanism as the Destroyer but in a submachine gun body style, with the added benefit of being able to switch back and forth between semi-auto and full-auto. It fires the largest bands, giving you the most power of the three models. It also has a removable magazine for rubber band storage.

    Thunderclap is a crowd-speaking platform. Think of it as an online flash mob. You opt in to have a predetermined message posted on you social media at a specified time. Since hundreds of other people will have also opted in and post the message at the same time, the message is more likely to be heard.

    We have released a Thunderclap campaign to urge people to back our Kickstarter in its final days. The message will blast out automatically from those who have joined on June 29th at 6pm. Join the Thunderclap with Facebook, Twitter, and/or Tumblr.
