Trebuchets for Sale NOW

I never thought I’d be the type to hawk trebuchets.  (But then again, I never thought I’d be an unemployed blogger.)  I am not scientifically minded and don’t give a shit about technology.  When some Caltech friends told me that they were selling trebuchets, I told them I’d check out their website and inwardly rolled my eyes.  I then spent a few days talking shit about trebuchets and Caltech grads to anyone who would listen.  But then, out of sheer boredom, I went online to find out what a trebuchet was.  Then I watched my friends’ promotional video, and now I’m completely taken in.

Here’s the deal: 1 trebuchet kit, which includes laser-cut Baltic birch plywood pieces that you can assemble without glue, costs $30.  The trebuchet is 1 foot tall and has a launching range of 20-35 feet, depending on what you’re launching.  But when you pay, you’re participating in a pledge deal, meaning that unless the company raises a certain amount of money (in this case, $48,000) within a certain amount of time (in this case, 7 days), nobody gets any trebuchets.  So far, they’ve raised $24,599.

So if you’re interested in owning a trebuchet, check out their Kickstarter page.  For more information and to watch trebuchets in action, check out their site.
