Boomerangsoffer great potential as eco-friendly weapons great because they creat no emissions f for proulsion and throws that dont miss their target come back and can be used again and thus can be recycled.

the problem with boomerangs it they afre hard to throw with consistent acuracy and I belive thats where robot throwing arms could enter the picture. . with robots throwing boomerangs all of the factors such as speed, andle and release could be done coin a consistent and calculated way so that the boomerang is more likely to hit their mark, also wind speed and trajectory could be more acuatley factored than if done instinctively by human soldier.

In conclusion , I have no experience with the subject im talking about but If any military agency wishes to fund me I bet I could make such a device for under 72 million dolars per unit, or 86 Million if you wish the design to be in space grey. I would like to thank the united nations for their time.

       This would aid in shooting around corners with the much needed spotter. Loss of punch and velocity though. This seems in the genre of knife throwing or Triffid gun.

       //I have no experience with the subject im talking about// - many ideas on this site are written by people whose experiences have actively sabotaged their ability to think rationally about the subject their idea is about, so having no experience is a huge plus and puts you way ahead of most people posting here.

       That's almost word-for-word what I told the enquiry, but would they listen?

       Who'd give a triffid a gun, damn dangerous as they are..Anyway, the real question is could it do the wobble- board properly?

       I think there's a much better idea hidden within this idea, likely obscured by the lack of punctuation. Why not explore and develop the potential of the robot boomerang?   

       The field of drone technology should offer some valuable assistance in creating a boomerang that, even in the hands of a child, could neuter a gnat at 400 metres.

       I will invest but the robot has to be able to catch it also. A perfectly thrown boomerang in windless conditions should return to the same spot every time.

       Same state throughout t1 to t2, no dice. The perfectly thrown routine/roulette ball?
