Images found of the upcoming 2019 Nerf Super Soaker Barracuda (from:amazon.de)
Seems like news on upcoming Nerf Super Soaker models can be discovered a little earlier every year.
This year, found info and some pics on at least three (3) new 2019 Nerf Super Soaker models:
The Hydra appears to be an inverted Nerf Super Soaker SoakZooka while the Piranha is a trigger-based water blaster. No image is available for the Barracuda, but from its description, it has two stacked barrels that blast (continuously?) while pumping. Images and information obtained from Entertainment Earth.
More information on these water blasters as they become available.
No, I don’t know where Summer, 2018 went for me. Well, that’s not 100% accurate, but what I can say is that life/work/other responsibilities have kept me far busier than I had initially anticipated.
Nevertheless, while this site and my other sites such as this other small site of mine have not had many updates, they are merely temporarily dormant and far from forgotten. In fact, I’ve begun making some tweaks and considering what type of updates I can realistically do on a more regular basis.
Will post again once I have more concrete updates and new content to share.
For now, for those in the higher Northern latitudes, enjoy the warm weather while it lasts; fall cometh and winter will be here before we know it.
In light of all the privacy and data issues on Facebook (plus given the fact that I never really liked that platform), I’ve opted to remove the “iSoaker Warriors Facebook” page.
All-in-all, not much of a loss, truthfully. There wasn’t any major content on there, anyhow, and its visibility was mediocre at best. Besides, with what little free time I have these days, might as well focus on developing content where I find most enjoyment, anyhow.
A review of the Adventure Force Power Raider, manufactured by Buzz Bee Toys Inc., is now posted on iSoaker.com. In short, the Power Raider is a separate pressure chamber air-pressure water blaster that sports a 3-option nozzle selector and detachable red-dot scope. Stream power is decent, but shot times are short due to the small size of the pressure chamber.
The Adventure Force: Power Raider is a private label water blaster made by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. for Walmart’s Adventure Force brand.
The Power Raider is a separate air-pressure chamber water blaster that features a removable “red-dot” scope. While the Power Raider’s pressure chamber is on the small-side, that also means it can be pressurized quickly. Streams are decent, albeit brief as well.
More information on the Adventure Force: Power Raider as more testing is completed.
Found pictures of the upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Ripstorm from this website.
This design reminds me of the Super Soaker Hydro Blade (2004). However, unlike the Hydro Blade, I do not believe that the Ripstorm is a pressurized water blaster. How well it functions in stream or “shred” mode remains to be seen.
Update: Just realized the Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Ripstorm is already available for sale on Amazon.com.
Something a little different:
Though it may be awhile (and a little impractical) to try to load this stuff into a water blaster, scientists seem to have determined a new state for ice. Granted, they used some lasers and diamonds to compress water ice VII even more.
From the Nature Physics article: “Using time-resolved optical pyrometry and laser velocimetry measurements as well as supporting density functional theory–molecular dynamics (DFT-MD) simulations, we document the shock equation of state of H2O to unprecedented extreme conditions and unravel thermodynamic signatures showing that ice melts near 5,000K at 190 GPa.”
To think steel melts at ~1,650K and here we are talking about water, but under some serious pressure.
Granted, with that heat and pressure, not sure one would want to be hit by it.
