Medieval Gear-Powered Catapult

A catapult is a ballistic device used to launch a projectile a great distance without the aid of explosive devices—particularly various types of ancient and medieval siege engines. In use since ancient times, the catapult has proven to be one of the most effective mechanisms. In modern times the term can apply to devices ranging from a simple hand-held implement (also called a “slingshot”) to a mechanism for launching aircraft from a ship.

Four gears enable by the hand crank allow for the mobility of the catapult. It has been proven that the device can fling a lego boulder six feet.

Eleven inches long, five inches wide, and nine inches tall achieves the advantage to launch your projectile.
