I made a baseball bat that (pretty much) always hits home runs. It uses explosive charges to put an enormous amount of power into your swing. In this video I show how I designed it and all the unexpected trials and tribulations of getting something like this to work. It turned out to be really hard but the end result is so much fun I can't complain. I don't think it's possible to use this bat and not grin.
I built this with the new Tormach 24r check it out: hubs.ly/H0rSZY60

      @RamadaArtist He basically says it himself: he failed because the conditions of his test were not comparable with the conditions in the final device. So please tell me what the merrit was in blowing the final device up instead of finding the same mistake in the simulation he staged before (had he managed to simulate the conditions correctly)? Also just because there are different ways of defining success and failure and sometimes failure can be bent into a success, it does not mean that failure does not exist or always has a merrit. Which seems to be what the sellers of this "the real treasure is the friends we made along the way" BS want to sell above.

      @Herr Schmidt I'm not sure in what world you live in that people just casually have access to physics simulators that can reliably calculate yield strength for various, and sometimes non-homogenous, materials; but if you could direct me to where I could find that software I'd be hugely appreciative. You're proposing he do what? Take all the design specifications, which he had to make anyway for the CNC machines, and put them through a supercomputer to find out if some wood might break when explosions happen? I'm almost 100% positive that whatever simulators that do exist and can handle this kind of complex composite physics interaction, would take *significantly* longer to compute than simply having the machines churn the pieces out and testing it by hand. This is exactly why the concept of "rapid prototyping" exists, and it's a strategy that most "successful" innovators and businesses regularly implement. If the thing you want to build or design is any less complex than, say, rocket science, it's usually cheaper and quicker to just make a mock-up almost version of the thing and see how that works. This is especially true when you're working with tools like CNC machines, because part of the process of building your prototype will be finding out how viable it is to *actually* produce it at scale. Like, in electrical engineering, you can design an ideal circuit to your hearts content, but when it actually comes to printing microchips, the physical realities of the material demand that it take a certain shape, and you'll only know how easy it is to produce it in large quantity if you actually do a test production. For high end semiconductors, like the kind that go into multicore CPUs and $10,000 graphics cards and, you know, actual super computers, you may only have a production yield of something like 25%. Most of the chips will "fail" to some degree, because actually printing them is a delicate process taking place at a microscopic scale and a lot of things can go wrong. But this is why Intel has ten dozen different offerings in whatever their current generation of CPU production is, because some of those "failed" chips will still work, but with fewer active cores, or at a lower processing frequency, and so they get sold as second and third tier products. Further, the notion of "success" to begin with is much more nebulous and intractable than you seem to think. For example, the AIM-54 Phoenix missile is considered to be one of the most "successful" long range air-to-air interception weapons ever fielded by the US military. On paper, it's perfect for what it was designed for, which is to let a Navy fighter shoot down a half dozen nuclear bombers from 200 kilometers away. In testing, it regularly outperformed any existing long range air-to-air missile. As it was built, the *only* platform which can actually use the AIM-54 is the F-14 Tomcat. Of all the other things that the Navy and the Airforce fly, only the F-14 had the proper avionics to use the AIM-54, and when the F-14 was retired the AIM-54 went with it. Which means, despite being in service for 30 years in the US military, the AIM-54 has never actually scored a kill for a Navy fighter. It was never, "successfully" used by the United States. It was actually fired in combat by US forces a handful of times, but it only ever saw use against other fighters, which weren't the intended target, and none of them scored kills. The US in total made about 4500 of these missiles (at half a million dollars each,) and over the span of 30 years, had exactly zero successful kills in live combat. For something that was deemed to be a "success," the AIM-54 was mostly two billion dollars worth of wasted potential, because the thing that it was "successful" at, turned out to not actually be the kind of threat air-to-air fighters would be encountering. Oh, other than the fact that the US sold a few hundred of the missiles along with some modified F-14s to Iran, back before the Islamic Revolution. Since the Revolution, Iran has actually used the AIM-54 somewhat regularly, notably during its war with Iraq. So, this design, while conceptually successful, in implementation, was only ever used to effect by enemies of the people who built it in the first place, and was otherwise just three decades and billions of dollars worth of busy work. So the definition of successful appears to me, not as readily objective as you seem to want it to be. Success always has to be defined within some context, but only the most narrow of perspectives allow clearly delineated "succeed" and "fail" states. If one looks at any effort through a broader lens, and recognizes its relation to the encompassing network of systems that every actual decision is made with, you start to see that there are connections of a profound amount of "failed" attempts, by other people, or coming from a different approach, that will inevitably contribute to any actual function of success.

    • Herr Schmidt
      Herr Schmidt

      @RamadaArtist True. A fail state depends on the chosen approach. But in a trial and error method the fail state is not the error. So succeeding without failing within the context of the method is absolutely possible. In this case it would have saved time to test the material using the expected force in a simulation rather than finishing all final parts. But only when considering the final device. For the video it made sense to have it fail in a spectacular way. So very obviously the idea of failure - and therefore wasted time - depends very much on the context. Which is why those absolute statements about "the way being the goal" and shit like that are absolutely pointless and derive from the minds of people who need a simpleton's excuse for wasting time and ressources.

    • RamadaArtist
      RamadaArtist

      @Herr Schmidt Failure and failed attempts to produce something are only wasted time if they don't contribute to net outcome. If you fail at something 100 times, but when you succeed it yields a ten thousand fold positive outcome, then all of the failed attempts are worthwhile in generating the successful one. Always being successful is only possible in disciplines that are already well established and have highly structured parameters. Any attempt to do something innovative, or creative at all, to produce something new, is almost inevitably strewn with failure. If you aren't failing at least some of the time, you either aren't pushing yourself to the extent of your potential, or you're doing something that is functionally mundane. Failure is way of learning limits, and it's helpful in determining the scope of a project or creation; if certain attempts fail, generally they fail for a reason, and critical analysis of that yields insight into how to improve or into refining the intention of whatever you're after. Failure is only wasted time if you don't have the ability to think critically about what and how that failure happened. You need to analyze unsuccessful attempts to determine more precisely what success is, and should, look like.

    I had an idea now when I was rewatching these - how about making a "pump action bat"? No need to have full 3-4 blanks power, just one blank would be enough, but with rapid deployment. It'd also be cool if you could perfect the blank powered axe. Something like that might be kinda fun and useful when dealing with big, tough logs, although I do realize that it'd be devastating if a swing misses and hits your leg...

      @The Black Baron the "imperial system" is a bunch of units designed specifically for one scenario mushed together and slightly standardized by the us govt. For instance the pica, a unit equal to 1/6 of an inch, initially seems stupid, but it existed for use in print shops long before it was incorporated into the system and standardized to exactly 1/6 of an inch. Whereas the metric system was designed all at once. Your "drink mathmatician" comment is a pretty unfair comparison imo.

    Watching the bat explode the way it did reminds me of my dad explaining to me that you should never close your hand and light a firecracker unless if you want your fingers to be severed. That wood is suppressing the cartridge and potential explosion very well, but once there is an actual explosion no matter how small the explosion is wood is clearly out matched when compared to steel. Does that have to do with elastic and inelastic collisions? Could it be that wood is a better choice than metal when hitting a ball but is terrible when making a super bat? Would compressed air be a safer bet than using a mini-explosion? Could a bat that has the same mechanics work better with compressed air and actually push out the sweet spot faster??? I don’t know because I’m not that smart nor do I have the space and money for that...but some people do and I wish there was a way I could ask them and see if it is possible to see it.

    This is awesome. Would be incredible if a true mlb Power hitter would be willing to try it to see how far they could get. I'm aware that's highly unlikely. Just saying.

    I would love to see like an ex pro use it. If you have 100+ mph exit velo already with this it would get ridiculous. E.g. Eric sim.

    Making the surface area bigger would help with the range, the force would he split up and would propell the ball instead of a hole in it

      @Justin Carawan - CarawanCo.PuzzleProductions CCPP you know there's no proper .27 cal baseball bat? You want to make something like this? Do the math if you dont wanna lose fingers, this is research and development... not instruction.

    You’re not getting as much force into the ball as you might think. When the explosives detonate, a lot of the force goes back into the swinging bat and slows the swing down, which you will undoubtedly be able to feel. What you’re getting is a swing that’s effectively just a little more powerful than your own…which you could likely achieve yourself with good training.

    i seriously think you should make a metal version of this bat, if perfected it would be perfect for home defense and sports for those that arent good at it or can't swing at all, if you could somehow make it so you can load the blanks without it being blown apart during use that would be interesting as well

    Yes V2 would be great. But make sure to use “Official Major League” Rawlings baseballs with V2. The MLB balls are much more expensive, but they travel much further than the cheaper balls.

      @Pablo Arroyo you mean tougher. Hard breaks. There's a reason to use something like birch. "The Oak breaks where the Willow just bends in the wind." And birch is one of the toughest woods. True, there's a few tropical hard woods that come close or even surpass it. But not many.

    • Pablo Arroyo

      Also, using a harder wood type would likely make the bat way more durable.

      At a certain point anything becomes expensive. That point is usually where you're using explosives to accelerate a baseball.

      @Moose Baseball Club Highlights nobody said they were expensive. Just "more expensive" - that is to say, they cost more. It's like saying being sick and saying "I'm feeling better today than I was yesterday" - doesn't mean I'm feeling good, just less bad. Sorry to go on, I just want to help. ESL classes don't always cover some of the subtleties of language!
