Beats the hell out of making Audis

The Mana Energy Potion Robopult is purest genius.

It's not the most straightforward, or mechanically efficient, way of achieving the same feat; it wouldn't even beat the human-powered punkin' chunkers. But point-and-click aiming for a trebuchet-type flinger (actually, this is more of a staff sling) is still a pretty nifty achievement.

More information, and one much more disgusting video (which is also rather surreal, thanks to inspired costume choices), at the Mana site.

    I've always thought about setting up a "click and shoot" app for one of those (possibly a bit silly) USB rocket launchers to let you set up a plan view target map. A bit of calibration (like setting up a touchscreen) and all your hitting-your-colleagues-in-the-ear-with-low-velocity-foam dreams come true...
