At the end of last year we spent a day at the office working on our own holiday creation challenge. Dan challenged the team with a brief to "design and make something that would keep a child entertained for hours".
This is Team 1's design - it started out as a trebuchet and then sort became a catapult/trebuchet hybrid. What ammo do you need for a catapult? LOLcatz and cheezburgers of course!
As it was a reasonably complex design we concentrated on getting the initial prototypes out very quickly. So if you're keen to make one of these you might want to review the design in detail. Some of our tolerances we're a little off :)
The LOL-cat-a-chet is made out of MDF for the machine and the ammo is made out of Red TINT acrylic.
