The Gatlino – die Nespresso Gatling Gun
Was für ein schräges Gadget für Nespresso-Kaffee Fans..welches definitiv auch in meinem Besitz übergehen muss, auch wenn es nur eine Studie ist.
The Gatlino®, the gun of our imagination based on the real M134, has a maximum firing rate of 4,000 rounds per minute; 66 per second. At this rather insane rate, so tastefully demonstrated in the video below, one might reasonably guess the ammunition would be devoured in a day or so. One would be very wrong, though. 41 billion capsules sucked up at 4,000 rpm works out to more than TEN MILLION MINUTES. This fire-breathing lawn mower would have to operate non-stop for 170,833 hours in order to exhaust the supply. That’s 19.49 years. And you’d never even get to the end anyway, even with two of these guns, since Nespresso’s factories continue to bang out more than 10,000 capsules every single minute.
So, you see, it was inevitable that I came to view Nespresso machines as machine guns. But it’s no stretch of imagination if you find yourself firmly cocking a brass-colored Nespresso capsule into place or emptying a pile of spent metal shells. It is nothing if not bullet-like. After all, a capsule is a cartridge by another name and both propellants work by means of rapidly expanding gases. Ammunition is only the half of it for, as the leading image shows, both are made from of a curvaceous combination of metal and polymers ending with a steel barrel. As with guns, the color of choice is overwhelmingly black, although drug dealers and people with questionable taste may choose chrome for either. If it isn’t too obvious to point out, both serve up shots.
