Joel did it. It was a cloud-like cannon with a hole in the back where he connected a shopvac.

Pingpong balls have serious air resistance compared to weight though... do they fly straight at all?

I think it would be kinda lame with how light the balls are, but it would be worth trying if you have the stuff just lying around (like I assume you do).
