The Paper Airplane Machine Gun is an incredibly badass creation that could change the world as we know it. It's pretty much what its name suggests -- it's a gun that fires paper airplanes. But wait -- not only does it fire paper airplanes, it actually swallows flat pieces of paper and folds them into airplanes before firing them into the air.

As if that weren't badass enough, the contraption's actual name in German (its inventor is German) is 'Papierflieger-Maschinenpistole'.

The Paper Airplane Machine Gun is constructed largely out of custom 3D-printed parts in addition to other components bought online and in different stores. Its driving mechanism that pulls sheets of paper through was forged out of a cordless screwdriver.

This epochal invention's inner workings consist of a number of ridges and rollers that perform the all-important folding and flinging.
