    I just saw the video shooting a slingshot with a slingshot and think,
    what about something like "shooting a sling with a slingshot"?,

    The idea is use the slingshot rubber to add the power and the spiral trajectory of the sling to add velocity, add some pulleys and it seems like it could be powerfull and fast.


    I draw this, it's just an idea let me know what you think.
    You need an extreme powerfull rubber to make this, so imagine a rubber composed of various powerful rubbers, you load rubber by rubber adding the force.

    Interesting idea, I can see the release being a challenge, it would have to be timed perfectly or you could end up with some serious damage to things you don't intend.

    I would say the Slingatron is probably the closest (and safest) to achieving what you propose, Joerg has already made the SlingaLaunch, but the sheer amount of rubber you would require for the neccesary rotations would be phenomenal

    Joerg did something very like this not too long ago.
