I had something like this a couple years ago. I think it was called an Airzooka.

Cool
The backside is just some elastic material which is pulled back and then released?

Could we power this up pneumatically?

Cool, I have been wanting to make one of those for a while. What kind of material would you use for the elastic part?

after seeing the vid I had to make one... and it works soooo cool...

the question was already asked but is it possible to make something similar but powered by compressed gas??

now this might in a way be agains the rules... (sorry if it really is) but has anyone tried to fill it with propane and aim at a candle or something similar ??

I remember playing around with one and the bag part was just normal and there was rubber bands that made the eleasticity. I guess bungee cords would work on something that big.

At last year's Maker Faire in Austin, some guy had a fog machine and an Airzooka made out of a large plastic garbage can with the circle part cut out of the bottom and a burlap sack over the large end, with bungees as the elastic bit. I think I got footage of it in my YouTube channel.

I think the bigass garbage can 'zooks work better than the commercial ones. You know, size and all. :lol:

I'd love to see a propane filled one with a flame near the muzzle... if all went well you'd get an awesome flame ring... although I bet it would be short lived, due to the limited fuel and the turbulence the combustion would cause.

Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Now we just need to do it on a much larger scale... I wonder what happens if you leave a window open on one side of the room and slam the door at the other end???? :lol:
