Problem Statement

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers has challenged us to create a machine that forms a projectile from a single sheet of paper, and then launches that projectile. The success of the device will be measured by how far the projectile is effectively propelled, how straight the projectile is propelled, and how much volume the device takes up when packaged.
