I thought he said it was like $85-$100 max for the grenade. Anyways, the video is freaking awesome. Mad funny with the animation. Interesting the way the grenade deploys the BB's. I thought it was going to be some crazy thing like the grenade Maple Leaves developed in Taiwan. But none the less, this looks very promising and impressive. R&D for it to deploy like that must have been a pain.

Getting it to work just right was a real bugger. Someday I'll have to collect all the bits of the previous proof of concept models and photograph a progression of grenade concepts. Maybe start an AI museum corner of all of the adaptor and grenade prototypes. A pile of tortured airsoft guns and accessories we devoured in the development process too.

The first concept in the design line that ended up here was pretty funny. It used a length of tubing instead of a spiral passage in shell halves. When the grenade went off the pellets hosed out and tubing whipped around scattering a disc shaped pattern. It's successor had two tubes which had thermoformed ends to try to get them to point up and down so they blasted cones. I was goofy looking and turned into a snarl of hose but it proved the concept of a spinning grenade pretty well. I was going to call that grenade the TentacleNade.

There were many generations of timer builds too. The grenade in this first video featured a timer that had to be refilled with a small amount of water (around 10mL). It was consistent, but a little annoying to refill. I recently improved the design to not need water (which was pretty difficult), but I felt it made the product much better. V1 was going to have a water based timer, but I decided to jump right to V2 for this first release because of testing feedback.

I couldn't afford to rent the camera again to reshoot with the new delay, but the current build performs quite similarly to the earlier water delay build.

Great design. Would make for a fun 4th year engineering design project too.
Liked how you used the different coloured BBs to see the dispersal pattern.

The concern I would have after watching the video was to how well it performs if it was rolled along the ground. I'm guessing the dispersal isn't as effective as standing straight up, but still effective?

Looks pretty beefy too. Good for durability. But not too heavy that it'll injure someone if they get beaned by it?

It tends to land sideways. I've never seen a grenade land and stay upright in testing.

It's damn durable, but I do worry about the bonk hazard. Still, it seemed obvious to all of my testers that they shouldn't be whipping the grenades at each other. It seemed that underhand tosses were easiest to control. Long bombing a grenade downfield doesn't work very well as you have no idea where it'll end up stopping and blowing up. You also risk losing it because it's hard to keep a long throw in sight.
