We admit it – we’re suckers for clever advertising of a product. The company behind Sugru, everyone’s favorite self-setting-rubber-fix-it material commissioned this awesome gatling gun styled water pistol, and it’s actually quite impressive.
Designed by [Alex Bygrave], he was instructed to build the gun out of as many standard hardware store parts as possible — and as much Sugru as he could. It’s been used to make all the seals, connections, and even the pistons, and while we can’t tell if it leaks anywhere, it’s still pretty impressive.
Unlike a normal water pistol, this one is powered by compressed CO2 canisters like the ones used for welding — meaning the pressures are much higher than a typical super soaker as well!
19Stick around after the break to see it in action – tested on the staff of Sugru themselves!
We’re not too sure if the home-made version of Sugru, called Oogoo, would be able to stand up to the same kind of torture the Sugru sees in this project. Speaking of which, can you actually buy Sugru locally yet?
