By now you’ve all seen the videos. Someone dumps a bucket of ice water on themselves and challenges their friends and family to do the same or donate to charity, frequently the ALS Association. But Contributor and friend of Make: John Park took the ice bucket challenge to a whole new maker level. Starting with the Burrito Blaster project, he loaded up PVC the air pressure cannon with ice water which he shot at himself with a remote trigger.
Perhaps now we’ll start to see a wave of makers taking the challenge with 3D-printed buckets, Rube Golderberg-style triggering mechanisms, or even Internet-connected Raspberry Pi-based CNC bucket tippers!
