It’s been a while since an incoming product has caused such a stir at The Discovery Store Towers but it looks like this week, after weeks of waiting, longing, yearning, the Aquapod Bottle Launcher is finally going to arrive.
When we first demoed our sample model Aquapod we were expecting it to be good, but not so good that we lost a whole afternoon to loading bottles up and launching them off around the carpark, all the while hooting, whooping and slapping hands like rhapsodic teenagers.
When that first bottle took off, arcing high up into the clouds, with a quite unexpected velocity, we were all kids again. And like all children when they find a toy they love, we wanted to play with it again, and again and again and again. And so will you – that’s the power of The Aquapod.
Its simple concept (it flys empty plastic bottles about 100 feet into the air using an explosion of air pressure) might not sound much on paper, but to witness it first hand is a thrill that elicites one of two reactions in mainly all who witness it.
‘Wow!’ and ‘Cooooool!’.
Me, I couldn’t help but combine the two, along with a scattering of other words which we will not dwell upon here, in a public forum, where they may invade the impressionable minds of innocent children.
For those of you who are bored of the talk now and want to see it working, here’s a video of The Aquapod in action.
If you’d like to snare an Aquapod for yourself before they all sell out, and the interest they have generated has been exceptional, get over to www.thediscoverystore.co.uk and get your pre-order in place today. As soon as the first batch arrive, we’ll be packing them back up, labelling them and dispatching them same day….and we promise not to go outside and test every one of them just to make sure they work. Honest we do.
