Summer is here, and the time is ripe for some serious water pistol fighting.

And designer Alex Bygrave has decided to arm himself fully against all-comers by creating this amazing six-barrelled, CO2-powered master blaster.

It's made from scrap parts that have been held together by the rubber-like super-adhesive Sugru, can shoot targets up to 40ft away and has a capacity of two gallons. It took Alex a full 50 hours to build and is valued at £1250.

While it does look good, for that price you could have an army of 41 Super Soaker Lightning Storms. Who would win? Alex: make another video please, and let's find out.
