I like trebuchets. Former Pixarian and RenderMan engineer Dan apparently located some plans for building small trebuchets from the Hila Science Camp:

The Hila Trebuchet.

And here’s a short YouTube video showing him test firing four of them. Cool!

Bonus video (unrelated to the above): Dan also posted a link to this video, showing video shot from an RC airplane while people on the ground tried to shoot at it with fireworks:

Wow! Really great. I’ve always wanted to put a TV Camera in one of my RC models.

My wife bought a new one for my home. But I’m having some trouble and I could use some help.
