Sugru - Water Pistol
Sugru - Water PistolPossibly the first ever Gatling gun water pistol was commissioned by Sugru to showcase the many properties of their material.
Briefed to design and build the device using as many standard parts from a local DIY store as possible, and demonstrate the use of Sugru as an engineering material, the gun is constructed from various pipe fittings, connectors and laser cut material. The water pistol shoots a different colour of water from each barrel.
Sugru was used to make pistons and variable injectors responsible for colour delivery, custom valving that sealed each barrel as it indexed in to the firing position and a rotary valve that timed water flow with the alignment of the barrels.
The pistol was designed and constructed over a two week period. The design was open sourced by Sugru on the Instructables website.
