Most people know potato guns are sweet as hell. Unfortunately, if you want to use one to turn any large pieces of produce into a smoothie (a squash or watermelon, for instance), you’ll need something stronger than a potato. Say, a steel-reinforced potato.
That’s precisely what Dustin from Smarter Every Day did, and he filmed his exploits with a modified potato cannon shooting reinforced projectiles in super slow motion. Just like in the above gif, you can even see the exact moment that the rapidly expanding gas in the barrel escapes as a spectacular shockwave. Something tells me that having your child that lose to a shattering mirror isn’t entirely safe? But that’s just one man’s opinion.
