Using paper clips, craft sticks, and other typical household bits, you can make devices that shoot, fly high, and deliver amazing results, as this handbook for junk-drawer engineers of any age explores the true power of the rubber band. Here you'll find simple (but refined) darts as well as more complex contraptions like a Crossbow, a Rubber Band Rocket, and a Floating Arm Trebuchet, which harnesses the power of paint stirrers and gravity itself. Some are specific step by step projects, while others are more general concepts, but all are well illustrated with color photos, as Lance Akiyama explains the engineering principles involved and suggests optional construction materials.
