Water guns have a long history of beautiful, simple, mechanical operation. Whether they're dead-simple pump-to-fire pea shooters or big, hulking, Super Soakers with shoulder straps and pressurized tanks, you only need two things to get down to business: some water and your arms. Too simple for you? You're in luck because the Spyra One has you covered.
The focus of that has already met its funding goal, the Spyra One is the """next generation of water guns""" and comes with a handful of snazzy features including an automatically pressurized tank, an ammo counter, burst fire operation that fires "water bullets," a quick fill feature, and of course, a battery you have to charge. When it comes to battery life, Spyra One promises "a full day of water fights with at least 45 refill cycles and 1125 shots," but you should always be skeptical of any battery life claims as a general rule.
The one feature of the Spyra One that seems legitimately appealing is that autofill feature, but don't be fooled: You don't need an electric Spyra One to get it. Purely mechanical auto-filling guns also showed up at 2018's Toy Fair and it's probably safe to bet that the feature is only going to become more widespread with time, no batteries required.
To top it all off, the Spyra One is a Kickstarter, which means that , it may never actually happen, or might not be nearly as slick as the promotional material presents it.
Sure, it's interesting to see what can happen when you mash up tech and water guns, but ultimately it comes down to a simple question: Do you want to be the guy at the next pool party walking around with one of those? And if you are still keen on buying your way to water gun battle dominance and achieving victory with superior weaponry as opposed to superior tactics, I might recommend you cut to the chase and just grab the ultimate weapon: a hose.
