The End Nears: A Goldfish Controlled Hammer

June 9, 2017

This is the Fish Hammer built by mad scientist Neil Mendoza (very detailed Instructable to build your own HERE). It uses a camera to track a goldfish's movement inside a tank, which moves the hammer on the tank's exterior to the fish's position along a semicircular track. I'm not sure what actually activates the hammer's smash motion though. Maybe the fish staying still briefly? I don't know. And, if we're being completely honest, I don't care. It's Friday afternoon and all I can think about is-- "Happy hour?" What? No. You -- all I can think about is you. I'm going to miss you this weekend. "Wish I could say the same." You really mean it?! Rub this lamp and tell him the same thing you told me.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to n0nentity, who agrees you should never trust a fish do a carpenter's job.

    Making hammers illegal for goldfish will just result in criminal goldfish having hammers...

    Isn't this basically just Donald Trump with gills?

    Do the same thing but bigger scale with a shark and a wrecking ball.

    Give a fish a hammer, it'll wreck shit for a day, but teach a fish to hammer...

    Now expand this idea and give it control of the entire world. We're bound to improve doing that.
