Behind the Scenes Video of how we built it: nlworld.info/key/video/pm5heZjFmGuFi3g
⇊ Click below for more links! ⇊
I have been wanting to build this thing as long as I understood the physics of how it all works. A super big thanks to David Linderman, Jeremy Fielding, Trent, and David Woodall (the welder).
I realize most people who support Smarter Every Day don't do it for "transactional" reasons, (ie, I'll support Smarter Every Day to get stuff). I also realized that there is often a mental hurdle that must be crossed before support on Patreon starts. My thought is that I'd really like to give folks a baseball, and it might provide enough momentum to get over that initial hurdle. I signed the first shipment of baseballs I received, but I only have so many of those. There's no implication that my signature is worth anything.... it's just kind of what you do with baseballs... it's a tradition. After a certain number, it will transition to unsigned baseballs. I've got enough signed baseballs to over all existing Patrons, and many more, but I will wait a month or so to see how many I need to get, then I'll order the second batch. I like to support jobs and pay people for what they're good at. The machinists and welders who made the parts in this video for example. The whole intent here is to diversify away from solely being ad sponsored so I don't have to answer to anyone but myself and Patrons with respect to the types of content I choose to make. Thank you for understanding what I'm doing here, and even if you decide not to kick in at www.patreon.com/smartereveryday , I'm super grateful you took the time to watch this video!
Thank you very much,
Destin

When I was younger, my favorite baseball players were Cal Ripken Jr. and Nolan Ryan en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nolan_Ryan
Nolan Ryan's fastball has been beat, but when adjusted for radar gun placement it may still be the fastest pitch ever:

  • this is the irl way to get Uraraka's infinity ball throw from the quirk assessment. Just aim the cannon at the sky and let the ball go flying

  • Can you please shoot a rifled lead slug out of that thing? Do you think a lead slug would have too much inertia to get up to supersonic speeds before it exits the barrel? Do projectiles with less mass exit faster? I have so many questions.

  • Can you please one day build a Mk2 and make it take something you wouldn't normally bring to supersonic speeds? Like a bowling ball at Mach 1.. And maybe you can improve the seal at the front by clamping down on the tape..
