Longreach Buoyancy Deployment System

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqMS_xEsUIw&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]

From this description:

The propulsion system uses a low yield butane-oxygen mix propelling the device to target up to 150m.


Wouldn't want to be hit by one :roll:

All rendered. Is this a concept, or are they planning on building it?

Not sure if that's a working prototype though.

Also, if the projectile is clearly fin stabilised, why the rifled barrel :roll:

Looks like the designer just came up with the concept and then it will be up to the engineers to make it work...

Don't give me how, I'm not the how guy, I pay you to be the how guy, I just get the ideas, you fill in the details *thwack*

:D

I re watched the video. Not rifled. It is a reflection that moves with the camera pan in the rendering. There is no twist to it.
