Human catapult

AirKick Human Water Catapult

The Airkick propels participants through the air using a special combination of air pressure and water recoil technology. The participant sits in a specially constructed seat at the back end of the catapult arm and 3,2,1…Liftoff. The device is put into motion when the participant pushs a button. Approximately 60 Liters of water are then forced through a rocket nozzle under the seat. This pressurized water (8 to 10 bar of air pressure) propels the participant 8 meters though the air for a cool and refreshing splash down in a swimming pool.

Wine + Bra = Awesomesauce! How can you NOT want to suck wine from your lady’s bosom? Wine Bra got my vote.

I originally voted for the air conditioned cushion, but I changed my mind. The AirKick Human Water Catapult seems like the thing that every pool should have. It’ll be the one thing you’ll want to strap friends, family, and enemies into, just so that you can see them fly.

Jo Says: August 22, 2008 at 4:47 am

Gaj, I have to admit that that’s the best gadget ever! Damnit!!

The water catapult has got to be the most fun. The wine bra is interesting, but then everyone would be wondering why you were “shrinking” as you were getting tipsy throughout the day!

iRing only because I would kill myself with the human catapult.

Kevin Says: August 22, 2008 at 12:45 pm

Definitely the ring, too cool!

The solar headphones are practical, environmentally friendly, reasonably priced, and work with DRM-free products.

I would have to go with the human catapult for some awesome fun! 😀

Jerry Says: August 23, 2008 at 8:16 pm

I’m going with the iring because as much as i love the catapult idea i don’t see in making its way to pool partys every where so my vote is the iring.

Jay Says: August 23, 2008 at 8:24 pm

A picture is worth a thousand words, the human catapult wins!

Krysta Says: August 25, 2008 at 6:37 am

Oh the things we’ll do to cool off in the hot summer sun. The ring is a smart idea but looks kind of masculine.

Drew Says: August 25, 2008 at 4:47 pm

Hands down the iRing wins it. But I have to say, my rumpus wants an air cooled cushion…The water catapult would be an impractical third on my list.
