Ringshot: The Evolution of The Slingshot

Image from Flickr
Sometimes there comes a design so simple and so clever that I just have to share it with all my readers!
Check out the Ringshot slingshot designed by Shira Nahon as part of the 2008 Holon Institute of Technology (H.I.T) Industrial Design department “Next Exit” Exhibition, in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Ah…this brings back memories of me slinging a rubber band between my thumb and first finger and shooting paper bullets at unsuspecting classmates. I believe this product elevates this stunt to the next level, now with greater power and accuracy.
Every school boy or girl will be dying to get one. Nice work Shira!

    I saw it few weeks back and really like it’s simplicity!
    There are few products which make me feel ‘how come i never thought of this?!’
    This is one of those!

    Yep, I saw this one a few weeks ago as well, although I can’t remember where exactly. It is one of those ideas that make you think; O yeah, that’s really simple, but figuring it out is a lot harder.
