Molten Metal Squirt Gun Is The Death Star of Super Soakers

 |  |  |  |  |  |  July 27, 2017

When the Super Soaker was first released in 1990, parents were freaked out that kids would fill the toy with harmful chemicals like bleach. But they never saw this coming – a squirt gun that blasts molten liquid metal.

Thanks to Kevin Kohler—aka The Backyard Scientist, this now exists. It’s both frightening and awesome. He used pewter, a malleable metal with a low melting point, to fill the custom-built squirt gun. Those lower temperatures mean that things are a little safer, but it’s still around 400º when it comes out of that nozzle, so it’s still crazy dangerous.

Watch this thing slice through a pewter pitcher like a laser in the video below:

Kevin also shows off some of the other liquids the squirt gun can fire, like ketchup, mustard, and butane – on fire. This thing is a weapon that an evil super-genius would use.
