Tennis Ball Cannon

Made as part of a team-building contest at my company.

Some stills:
not bad for accuracy!
 The tennis ball is top center left, its shadow is just left of target! At 25 m distance, the precision was 3m in length and 1m in width. The pieces of bark and stones mark the "hits".

 Immediate post-launch: Elsa wanted to launch as many as possible simultaneously, we got up to 4!
Four in the air

Piston at full post-launch extension.

Looking down the mouth of a loaded cannon - see how much I trust Maya.
