This is the second rendition of a rubber band gun robot I built. Runs off of a 9.6 V battery, and shoots down rubber cans. It is also lazer guided, and very fast.

Here’s a simple design that can hold and fire about 10 rubber bands. Stretch them one by one across the base and attach them to the wheel. As you attach them turn the wheel clockwise to load onto the next bar. Then simply reverse the wheel direction to fire. Unless it already does fire multiple rubber bands?

Wow, very nice idea. I’m going to have to try it now.

That is exactly how it works. You can comfortably hold about twenty elastics or so on there, depending on size.

Oh awesome! It’s hard to tell from the photo how exactly it works. Are you just using a basic vex gear for a loading wheel then?

Yeah.
