For those with a creative mind, the average mind-numbing desk job may not be the most rewarding job. Working a job where you can use your creative talents and challenge your mind would be so much more enjoyable. There are many people out there who are able to make a living using their creative minds. Take Joerg Sprave, for example. Joerg Sprave created an M16 Crossbow, inspired by the idea of survival during a zombie apocalypse.
The Zombie Apocalypse has become all the rage on the internet. The question, “Do you think you could survive a zombie apocalypse?” has been asked about a million times. As a matter of fact, tons of people have actually prepared themselves in the case that a zombie apocalypse does happen. It is always a smart move to prepare for catastrophe. Nobody was prepared for 9/11, but can you imagine just how different everything would be if somebody had prepared? This tragedy may have been greatly reduced, or not even have occurred at all. So why not prepare for a zombie apocalypse? Joerg might be onto something with his incredible engineering.
Joerg was not only inspired by the popular T.V. show, The Walking Dead, but also by practicality. Imagine this – You’re in your house, hiding behind the wall in your house next to a broken window. There are zombies pounding on the glass, which is crashing all around you, your heart is racing. You shoot many of them before they get close enough to eliminate you, but one of the undead creatures sneaks up behind you and, and quickly, with loads of adrenaline pumping through your veins, you shoot it in the head with perfect aim. But what would have happened if you’d missed? You survived the first wave of Zombies, but you know there will be more. Then, as you sit back and come up with survival strategies, you can’t help but wonder this – what happens when there are no more bullets? You’re not likely to be able to get to a gun shop to loot ammo safely if you are low on ammo or have run out of bullets. Luckily, there is a solution that might just let you last until you can get your hands on some more ammo.
Joerg came up with the idea of converting spare parts of an M-16 rifle into a crossbow. This machine allows you to to shoot at zombies with dead-on accuracy. Pretty useful, right? Especially if you find yourself in a similar situation to the one described above.
In Germany, apparently, there is no regulation of crossbows, so owning one of these M-16 crossbows would be perfectly legal to own. The crossbow comes with a rubber band protective housing which serves as a silencing mechanism and helps to propel the ammunition. This way, you can kill more zombies from a distance without alerting more of them of your presence.
Joerg is still working on the design of this crossbow, but it will be in great demand if ever there is a zombie apocalypse. According to Joerg, this weapon is simple to make, which is proof that one could survive simply with a touch of creative thinking.
