    We created a bike slingshot in my engineering class at school. We posted a video of it up on MetaCafe. Here is the link to the video. Check it, out tell me what you think.

    What does the bike do? You pulled the cords back by hand.

    Well since you guys have the collective imagination of the **** i took this morning I am going to say that the bike is used to wind up the slingshot via the rear wheel, buy for demo purposes they did it by hand?

    was it really that hard to pull it back by the wheel? every test showed a test subject pulling it back by hand w/ no one on the bike

    ..oh wait, did you help make this?
