That in fact is a magnificent work of precision... A clockwork springloaded car.

Wonder what CAD software the designer used. I don't think it is the classical CAD...

Or at least he built a small prototype before :-)

I would be interested to know how he built this...

Imagine for historians who study historical mechanism?
Rebuild a "South Pointing Chariot", or the "Antikythera mechanism" ?

Gather a mob to demand an interview+tutorial :-D

I'm very excited about this too and will ask Wouter if he is willing to share some of his secrets with us.

This looks great, i was wondering when some one might try this out.
How far dose it go when pulled to the springs max?

I only pulled it back a bit a few times and then it zoomed for a metre or so. I'm not sure about the maximum, I'll ask wouter.

This looks like it could revolutionize model making. Especially in making simple mold masters.

Good job, looking forward to trying this out.
