Spudgun and cool Adobe Acrobat application

Night Lighter 36 potato cannon plans. These have appeared in Make Magazine and his Whoosh Boom Splat book. But, Make has now enhanced the plans by including an interactive 3-D model. This is really cool. From within the .pdf file, you can zoom, rotate, and explode (no pun intended) the model. You can also select a single component from the parts list to separately extract that part. The file is here. Grab the file and have fun. I'm sure there are other capabilities I haven't played with. If you find something else cool, please leave a comment.
