Mini-crossbow: Pint-sized projectile packs punch


(CBS) - It seems crossbows don't get a lot of love these days (apart from the occasional deer hunter.) That's too bad, because crossbows are as elegant as they are powerful. This video is a perfect example. Check out this tiny crossbow in action and be amazed.

Ridiculous, right? That thing's barely over an inch long and it's a deadly weapon. The creator, a Mr. T. Shamir, has built several miniature projectiles and posted them online. But for sheer craftsmanship, it's hard to outdo this crossbow. (Warning: throbbing techno music throughout video.)
