Engineer Builds the World’s LARGEST Super Soaker

If you were looking to have some fun in the summer as a kid, then you pulled out your super soakers. Former NASA engineer Mark Rober wanted to relive his childhood memories of Super Soakers, but take up the power just a notch. To do this, he constructed the World Record largest super soaker ever. If you’re thinking this is just a large replica, then you would be wrong. This powerful water blaster is fully functional and can shatter glass windows and much more. This giant toy probably isn’t for kids. You can check out the whole video below.

The gun works through compressed air, but that air isn’t stored from pumping like the small version. Rather there are two tanks built into the giant handle of the gun in order to hold the massive amount of pressurized and water. Believe it or not, when Mark was building the gun, he even consulted the original creator of the super soaker during his design process.

If you’re interested in seeing a little more of the behind the scenes of the gun and it’s construction, you can check out the video below from Bob from I Like to Make Stuff who helped out on the project.
