After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com

What Happens When a 900mph Ping Pong Hits Your Paddle

I do love physics in the morning.

There's no shortage of plans online for building a simple ping pong cannon that can fire balls at hundreds of miles per hour. But you're probably not going to find the details of Purdue University Professor Mark French's cannon, since his creation can accelerate a ping pong ball to 900 miles per hour, or just over Mach 1.2.

When I was looking for a college to attend my decision was mostly based on word of mouth from previous students and friends who had attended.  Of course cost also had a factor in my decision but in the end I choose my college based on the stuff they were capable of doing.

The video on this article is a great motivator, almost makes me want to head back to school.

Almost happy smile
