Following the world’s largest NERF gun, YouTuber/tinkerer Mark Rober has created the world’s largest Super Soaker and it actually works! Hmmm, I wonder what the anti-riot department’s thought? Ok, maybe not; it will hurt them rather than suppress them. Not a good idea, obviously. Apparently, it is Guinness World Record holder for the largest Super Soaker, coming in at a cool 7 feet long. Like Mark’s previous creation, he strive to be as authentic as possible in terms of look and authenticity, and the result is a Super Soaker that looks like it got hit by the enlargement ray gun and of course, shoots water.
However, the similarly ends when it comes to the innards. To propel water at this proportion, pump action ain’t going to cut it. Instead, high pressure nitrogen is use to drive the water out of the nozzle at 2,400 psi (that’s 8 times over a typical truck), sending it down range at an astounding 272 miles an hour (437 km/h). Like I said, it probably won’t suppress an angry mob due to the stream size but as Mark demonstrated, it can break glass pane with ease and also, readily destroy watermelons too. That said, this is no toy. The water jet produced can hurt if one is not careful. In case you down in making one, Mark has the CAD files and build lists for you. Otherwise, let’s just enjoy the fruit of his labor by watching the world’s largest super soaker in action in the video embedded below.
