Tankers!

Here is a my blue print example. Hopefully you guys can be a little more creative than I am. :)

 

 

Here is what we want you to do:

  • Go out and find or make a tank.
  • Find or make a backboard and hoop.
  • Figure out a way to make your tank safely fire your ball into the hoop.
  • Successful shots and creativity will take this one. Trick shots are even better.
  • Make sure you show your handwritten gamertag somewhere in the video

As some one who lives in Madison and attends the university; I'm glad the rest of the country can enjoy the game, knowing that their city isn't about to have the busiest policing day in recent history.

I'm guessing t can be smaller  but dont' quote me on it, would be nice to see an actual  basketball but really, seems complicated to me haha, may sit this one out.

You can do it on Vine or a gif as long as your gamertag is handwritten in the video. If you do a gif, please make it as smooth as possible. YouTube or Vine are preferred.

It can be a small mini basketball like the ones you get in those little ball and hoop toys. It can even be a mini tape ball as long as it can be shot into your hoop. Scale it to your tank if you would like.

Is there any limit as to what can be used to launch/ fire/shoot the basketball into the hoop?

I think you'd need an open top tank to fire it.

Technically it would have to be artillery, given shell arc

Go out and find or make a tank.

 

:D

 

Kinda humorous to think about someone knowing a guy who has a few tanks lying around.

 

Person A: Dude, do you have a tank I can borrow.

Person B: Sure, here is the key to the Tiger I.

*gives key to Person A*

Person A: Ah sweet! Thanks!

Person B: No problem. Be sure to not scratch the paint.

Here's a thought for those who have the time.  Any of you ever seen or made a potato gun out of 2" diameter pvc plumbing pipe?  Very easy to do, made one as a kid using a 48" long 2" pipe flared into a 4" chamber.  I'm sure there's lots of info on google.  Since nothing was specified as to regulation size ball or hoop, maybe make a small one with a 1/2" pipe barrel and a 2" chamber, mount on a model or toy.  Find or make a small ball and hoop.  Cheap hairspray in the can is the best propellant, and use a grill igniter for combustion.

 

Edit: Please be careful, folks, we don't want anyone to get injured!
