I needed to find out if my explosive bat would make a good golf club, wood splitter, and how much it would hurt if it went off in my hand...

This video is a different style from my previous one and is a bit of an experiment. Hopefully you enjoy it and give my wife a big thanks for putting up with me!

    We had a bit of fun with a different format paying tribute to mythbusters. It was a lot of fun :) give my wife kudos for putting up with me. Hopefully you enjoy it! Also don't worry the narrator is just for this video to go all in on the mythbusters gag.

      If you need a perfectionist in the job, you need more than a major technician! What I would suggest is that you make a prototype from " electronical triggering " release hammer or button execute trigger! In that way, as you go along, when you've done the perfection part on the auto button, you can later reverse the prototype to manuall! ( Trigger )

    A lot of speed is lost between the bat and where the pitcher throws the ball from, but it would still absolutely destroy you. The fastest exit velocities of a MLB player are 120 mph. I think this exceeds that by quite a bit.

    Hi! Why haven't you made the first part out of solid steel? I mean you don't need to swing it werry fast and it would allow you to utilise more of the energy in to the ball. And the stopping roads, can't you just make them longer? Really enjoyed watching this! Hope you smash that record!👍😀

  • Thomas Schwartzman

    Maybe my science is wrong, but wouldn't this hit with the same energy as a regular swing? Equal and opposite reaction, so the energy driving the Pistons forward, drives the bat back in an equal amount, correct?

    If you reduce size (baton or ASP size), weight, and fire power to non-lethal force and create ability for quick reload or automatic reload, then this could be a nice home protection device for us seniors who don’t want to kill but want to protect our life partners and out self.

    oh yes! The same idea of a small trigger could be applied to the axe's head! It has to chop stuff up, and no cheating!! Extra point if you mount it on an actual axe and chop big logs with it!! now that would be dope haha.

    This would be crazy (and almost impossible) but I think I'd be a great addition for a post-apocalyptic version of this bat. What if you made the bat multi-shot. So you can for example hit 4 baseballs one after the other. It would be using 1 shell per "shot" but it would still be pretty cool to see the bat make multiple shots in a short amount of time

    Expecting a baseball launched by this thing to *not* penetrate a human body is honestly the *way* weirder expectation. It runs on bullets. If one of those can put a nail through concrete, four can put any object strong enough to not shatter against your skin out through your spine.
