That's a really impressive device (does he need a tech
writer?), but I don't believe it could *launch* a washing
machine, which was to be one of the test-loads for the
scaled-up trebuchet.

A weekly Canadian TV show has a small-scale version of
the air cannon in the URL that you supplied. Every week,
they pick a political or other target, stuff the cannon
with icky stuff, and blast an effigy of the target.

Meanwhile, I've asked Darren if he's still got a web site
with pictures of his toy.
