I've always wondered what people who love to study science might do in their spare time. The answer seems to be creating kick-ass weapons like the CG-33 Portable Coilgun.

This coilgun is one hundred percent DIY and totally functional. This gun shoots out projectiles using electricity, powerful enough to destroy glassware and model airplanes.

Implications - Forget test tube lab experiments or Bill Nye the Science Guy reruns, DIY weapons are the newest and hottest fun-filled activity for science geeks everywhere. Here's hoping the potentially dangerous weapons don't end up in the right hands, as these Coliguns are fully functional. While not as powerful as a regular bullet, the electrical bullets are powerful enough to reap destructions on many potential targets. Check out the CG-33 Portable Coilgun in the featured video.
