Playing around with these new dispensers I have discovered how fun large volleys of arrows can be, especially when directed towards an enemy or mobs. Using single player survival mode and INVedit (No I did not have the time to cut down approx. 324 trees, kill 12960 zombies [or same number of chickens/combination of both] or destroy 129600 gravel blocks!)
I have created a modular design for a rapid fire multiple barrel arrow launcher.
90 Barrels of arrow firing goodness!
Each two rows of dispensers is modular so i can add more layers above and below without any issues with wiring or movement. Dehind every two rows there is an area where you can enter to reload each dispeser
Hallways for easy reloading
Rapid pulsars on every second layer
Each module is exactly the same as the next
As we know each dispenser has nine slots, and each slot can hold 64 arrows so 576 arrows per dispenser. Every cycle shoots 90 arrows, the lag was unbelievable but i did manage to get some nice screenshots.
Our arrows will blot out the sun!
Then we will fight in the shade
And this is the aftermath no I did not fire off all 51840 arrows, but you get the idea!.
Here lie the corpses of 3 beloved pigs, COD unknown
Lovely balcony shot of the carnage
Hope you have had as much fun seeing my creation as I have had creating it!
You my friend. Oh yes you. People like you inspire me to play minecraft it self! Well done man! Pure epic win. Although, I would love if we could see some pics/A video of these things Shooting at Mobs. like some zombies? But Meh, Still one of the greatest things i have seen in MC. Well done!

Wow all these great responses thank you all, know I HAD good news and I HAVE bad news, the good news was that I got some video capturing software so that I could make a video of it in action!, I closed minecraft and got all the software ready and when I opened minecraft it was updating so I thought 'Awesome another update'.
But here comes the bad news as I was setting up my creation for what was going to be an amazing video I accidentally activated it!, I had some minor lag, but then it suddenly stopped shooting.
I checked everything and nothing had changed, only the rapid pulsar had stopped working! I have tried it multiple times but I cant get it to work.
It does still shoot for a little while but, we will not be fighting in the shade, again =(
Hopefully I will find a work around and get it back up and working! I shall keep you updated on my progress.
EDIT I have learned that rapid pulsars occasionally burnt out, so please ignore this post.
