-Hi, I'm Michael, and we're building laser-cut snapped together trebuchets.
This is all, you know, good, close tolerance wood, so there's no glue required.
The whole thing just snaps together.
And we've got the setup with a light weight here so that the motion isn't too fast, and we can show you exactly how this works.
You take a projectile.
It goes in the sling.
And we can cock it backwards, and this is the ready-to-fire position.
When I let go, this arm's gonna swing around, the sling's gonna come around, and it's gonna shoot this little wad of paper, just like that.
With more weight or a bigger projectile, you can make it go further, shorter, and you can adjust the angle of release by changing the angle on that pen.
-Now, tell us how people get these and what price.
-People get these by going to our Kickstarter page, if you go to kickstarter.com, or even more easily if you go to siegetoys.com.
That's S-I-E-G-E-T-O-Y-S dot com.
We've got a big link on the top of our page.
You can go to our Kickstarter page, pledge to support our project, and it's about $30 for one trebuchet.
