The trajectory of a cannon as seen when holding a Pointer.

The Item Cannon is a block added by the OpenBlocks mod. The cannon can be used to transport items over great distances quickly. To set the trajectory of the cannon, a player has to right-click it with a Pointer to select it and next, click a block to aim at that position. The cannon's trajectory is drawn as a black line which is only visible when holding a Pointer. When a redstone signal is applied to the cannon, it will start firing all of the items from an adjacent inventory like a Chest, towards its target coordinate. The items are fired as stacks of items, not entities. This means that Arrows that are shot with a cannon, will not cause any damage upon impact. TNT or other explosives also won't be lit as they are fired as item stacks.
