You're bound to lose control when the rubberband starts to jamRubber bands. Either you have none or you have a drawerful of a million billion of them which each cry out for you to shoot them at your friends and family every time you walk by. (Generally having none stems from having shot a million billion of them at your friends.) But there are even better things to do with rubber bands.
Enter Lance Akiyama. Handy materials, clear photographic instructions, and creative ideas combine in his Rubber Band Engineer to make for a group of stellar projects for kids and adults alike. He'll walk you through 19 different projects, from building slingshot-powered rockets to getting your robot arm ready for world domination.
If you're not sure if the book's your sort of thing, Make ran an article entitled Construct a Fun, Powerful Rubber Band Crossbow that should help you decide. One of the 19 projects in the book, this build walks you through making the contraption on the book's cover.
