The Human Slingshot is Death-Defying Fun for the Adventurous Type

The Human Slingshot is not just an urban legend or a fancy at-home DIY any longer as a patented design is now available for purchase. The daring outdoor toy is created using super stretchy material that is reinforced to ensure maximum durability.

To play, three to five participants gather within the band-like contraption and work together to stretch the sides of the toy to launch their fellow teammate across to the other side of the enclosure. What will start to happen is when one player is slingshotted across the enclosure, other players will begin to bounce around inside, which will eventually lead to complete chaos involving all participants. Although seemingly dangerous, the Human Slingshot is perfectly safe if all participants keep an eye on each other and stop when someone falls or calls it quits.
