First we brought you the crossbow built from office supplies, and now we’re proud to present… the paper airplane machine gun! With the power of 3D printing YouTuber Papierfliegerei built this awesome contraption.

Powered by a cordless screwdriver, the Papierflieger-Maschinenpistole folds and fires paper airplanes at the pull of a trigger.

While there is no practical use for it we still think this is perhaps the greatest thing we’ve ever seen. As its proud creator explains: ‘A little tinkering from me that shows what you can do with 3D printers today.’
