Our lab-coated compadres at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories have taken on a guest contributor for extra evil, more madness, and bonus science! Rich Faulhaber’s nifty project is a CO2 injector for whole fruit. And who doesn’t want to inject a little carbon dioxide fun into their daily fruit requirements?

In an effort to make fruit fun for the kids, I built a carbon dioxide injector from parts in my garage with the purpose of carbonating whole fruit! With a common house water filter housing, a 16 Oz paintball CO2 canister, an old gas regulator, and some miscellaneous valves and fittings, I was able to bring this fizz fruit apparatus to life, and the kids love the results.
