Conquer your office space and strike fear into the hearts of your co-workers with this tiny new addition to the world of siege weapons.

The 'Pennypult' is based upon the design of a medieval trebuchet that has been shrunk down to only nine inches tall. Using a stacked counter-weight design, consisting of 16 everyday copper pennies, this gravity-powered small-scale catapult is able to launch objects up to 35 feet away despite it's tiny size.

The 'Pennypult is also luckily easier to assemble than you would expect when it comes to siege weapons. The tiny trebuchet can be put together in about 15 minutes without using any tools or adhesives. Several laser-cut pieces of wood and additional attachments all easily snap together to form the smallest piece of combat weaponry the world has ever known.
