Welcome to the pneumatic launcher section of xinventions.  Here at this site you will find information on constructing yourself a pneumatic or combustion launcher. From a paintball gun to a pneumatic cannon capable of delivering a projectile hundreds of yards. Pneumatic launchers can be a great science experiment to demonstrate laws of projectile motion. Many people launch potatoes or other veggies for fun however other practical uses for air launchers are used. Various research groups use air launchers to test aircraft windshield strength and durability by simulating bird impacts. Pneumatic launchers are also used for avalanche control, and have been used to simulate hurricane impacts by launching wood into houses to see how engineers can improve homes to withstand hurricanes and save lives. 

Please note that some launchers and content on the site was written when I was quite young so feel free to send me an email if you see any errors that need correcting.  Thank you!
