THE random soaker related invention thread

Post by used man » Sun Jun 01, 2008 12:47 am

The title says the idea. Ill start with my shower nade the shower nade is relatively useless. To make it you take a broken xp gun saw off the pressure chamber/s right at the neck. Next you drill four holes in a square around the original hole. Then you fill it up and throw it spinning and water showers everywhere.

I remember an older thread with something similar that used a small piece of latex tubing. If my memory's right it was meant as a paintball grenade. Once I find it I'll post it here.

Similarly, it wasn't very useful. I don't think there's anything that will replace water balloons as the "water grenade." Despite the cleanup and one time use, they work and work well.

I'm pretty sure "something similar with latex tubing" is a description. :p

Anyway, I've found the link to what I was talking about: http://forum.specialopspaintball.com/in ... opic=80216

It can be used as a reusable water grenade but it doesn't get as much spread as a water balloon.

I kind of understand what you mean by your Shower-nade, used man. You mean basically a part-water-filled plastic ball with holes in it, so that when you throw it, the centrifugal force flings the water out in any direction.

I swear you can buy those things for little kids can't you? except they come with spongey things in them as well, so that the water lasts longer?
Armoury includes: Homemade Copper Gun, "Requiem" (boasts a very large water-carrying capacity, large pressure chamber, fitted pressure gauge, and as of 2nd Sept 2011, fully working home-made pump)
