As far as homemade weapons go, they don't get much more dangerous or crazy than this machete-shooting slingshot. Your potato cannon just got seriously one-upped.
This may look like a relatively normal cane, but it hides a secret. Two secrets, actually! The first secret is a flashlight, which isn't too exciting. The second secret? A million-volt stun gun. Yep.
You are looking at the latest and greatest in weaponry, headed now to the battlefields of Afghanistan. It's the XM25 Counter Defilade Target Engagement System, and it is crazy.
If you plan to start a revolution, you're going to need weapons, lots of weapons. Of course you don't want just leave them lying all over the house, so may I suggest a Revolver gun safe from Pendleton Valuables Management.
Some of those elaborately designed weapons you see spy movies actually exist, like the Triar II pistol to rifle conversion kit, a very real contraption that looks like something from Gears of War.
Laser weapons are slowly becoming a reality, if not a practical one. Long the provenance of sci-fi movies, a laser weapon almost seems an inevitable part of a future military, but current power and size limits have kept them in the lab for the most part. But Lockheed Martin may have figured out a way to solve many of lasers' issues with an inverted prism.
Sure, the HARDBUT missile might have a pretty funny name, but you wouldn't be laughing if it was headed in your direction. That's because this monster ordinance, which has the full name of the Hard and Deeply Buried Target Next Generation Multiple Warhead System, is designed to go deeper into bunkers and secure command centers than any other weapon.
The hardest part of being a sniper is all that darned sniping. Luckily, DARPA and Lockheed Martin have teamed up to develop a sniper rifled that does much of the work for you.
Sure, commuting to work in a tank is impractical. Just think of the gas costs! But the BOND Bike? It's like a tank in bike form, and it's pretty amazing.
There are upsides and downsides to the taser. On the one hand, it gives cops a non-lethal way to subdue violent perps. On the other hand, they seem to use it a lot more than they need to, often in lieu of just talking to somebody. So I've gotta wonder how good an idea a handheld pain ray is.
