Ultimate Airzooka

Shoots huge pockets of air

Im sure a lot of you have heard about, or like myself - even own one. The airzooka, a bucket sized gadget with a gun-like handle and a simple rubber band loading mechanism shoots small pockets of air up to like 30 feet or something. Real jokes to play around with, cause its harmless, and totally spins out unaware victims - clueless as to what just hit em. Well what if a huge version of the airzooka were to be constructed? Like seriously massive - 20metres or so in diameter. One can only assume that the results would escalate accordingly. It would definately have to be made out of more hardcore and durable materials. The regular one is totally constructed in plastic....so a metal one? with super-tension rubber ropes, maybe even hydraulics. Im guessing the result of this monster would be quite devistating depending on the target - not such jokes anymore! As the ultimate airzooka essentially shoots out a mass of air at a high speed, so it wouldnt neccesarily have to be used to destroy, perhaps even bigger versions can be used to alter weather conditions. who knows, but i reckon this concept hold some potential. chillax with the fishbones yeah?

       This is quite possibly one of the funniest things i've ever read. Can you imagine useing one of these things on a battle field some where?

       Now add a gasoline mist and a couple microchips (for redundancy) with tiny batteries and vanes that tumble in the vortex and piezo ignite the mixture at specified release time.

       Fishbone for three things--no real idea or uses, just WIBNI bigger; asking for no fishbones; having the gushing annotation from [Anti_paper] with the same sort of spelling errors.   

       Besides, the Nazis did it in WWII. "Nazi engineers conducted tests with guns that fired air. . . . but no planes were shot down and the weapon was abandoned." and "The Vortex Gun was . . . a mortar barrel of a large caliber sunk in the ground . . . The first experiments with compressed air were failures. . . . coal dust . . . hopefully make enemy airplanes lose control and thus knock them out of the sky. If all circumstances were perfect and favorable, the strange device seemed to work fairly well. . . . The range of the prototype was estimated to be about 100m, even though the gun was never used in practice."
