Had to get this out of my system.

The most powerful water conflict resolution device ever created. Based on an iPhone 4, ( so it can be funded on Kickstarter, 1,750,000$, please help if you can) The iPhone case, waterproof, has a lens and ranging system that is GPS based. The target is located and the trigger button depressed and the coordinates are sent to a remote unit. Weighing hundreds of pounds and located in a nearby allied neighboring location, the launching tree spins at high revolutions and is able to pivot in 360 degrees. Computer controlled release of each cell allow precise targeting at a variety of ranges and angles. A single, or multiple waternitions, aka water balloons, (rate and frequency is app determined, available on the iTunes app store, included in the price, TBD) are launched at a precisely computer controlled arc toward the designated target. 800 cc's from the heavens descending at about 180 MPH, roughly, it may leave a mark.

The each cell contains a water balloon with automatic refilling ( laser sealed thin PU tubing ) spinning at 3000 RPM, might need a protective cage shell. Visual tracking of departing waternitions for corrective targeting due to wind.

Splats from God. 50 minutes. 43 minutes in CAD and render.

Youtube video of CAD modelling process recorded 43 minutes running time split into three sections due to youtube restrictions.

Took longer than I thought it would, first time 1HDC entrant > 1hour 20min.

Using a Hydrogen cartridge and an Oxygen cartridge this underhand pistol generates its own water. The pistol also captures the energy released when the water is created and uses it to power a compressor which allows the water to be fired at a high velocity.
Additionally the pistol features an AWG (Atmospheric Water Generator) which captures water from the humidity in the air to subsidise the water created by the cartridges.
