Adjustable Assassin Boomerang has ailerons fitted to critical parts of its wing surface. Additionally it's sent off from a device similar to a clay pigeon launcher, delivering considerably more power than a human arm.
This means its flying range is now substantial, giving the operator time to use
a control panel to send signals to the servo powered ailerons, and cause the boomerang to be steered in specific directions.
There are numerous dangers waiting in Australia and now death by Adjustable Assassin Boomerang joins the list.
Extra dangerous version features a funnel web spider held within a small container that springs open on impact to release the now enraged beast to finish off the job if the boomerang has failed.
||[+] but there needs to be a version that can deploy a blue-ringed octopus for those who have fled into the sea to escape the spider version.
||Nice try, [2fries], but you're still only a wallaby wit ... now hop it, we aren't goanna tell you again.
||Presumably an "assassin" boomerang will be some form of
deadly (ranging from "Oww!" to "designed by [8th of 7]").
Do you really want it coming back at you if it misses (which
is kind-of the point of a boomerang...)?
||We never miss! The practice boomerangs are all
recovered of course but the deadly ones make a
one way trip.
||I keep circling back to this idea.
