Paintball minigun in development, paintball BFG still on drawing board

To be honest, we're not that big on paintball except for when robots or tanks are involved, but special effects man Rick Galinson (of Snakes on a Plane
fame, no less) has managed to peak our interest with the sheer
badassness of his latest project. He's currently in the process of
creating a room-clearing paintball minigun and, as the video on his
site shows, he's made some impressive progress. While it can't actually
shoot paintballs yet, its 1200 psi of pressure is more than enough to
provide an effective and, frankly, scary demonstration with nothing but
air. Unfortunately, Rick hasn't given any indication when he expects to
finish the thing, but we're guessing that he's gonna keep it for
himself when he does; lets just hope that whoever has to stare down the
barrel(s) of this thing knows what they're in for.
