The story behind the Super Soaker is a classic case of accidental genius. Lonnie Johnson, the creator of the Super Soaker, originally wanted to build a refrigerator that used a heat pump to cool itself (and not Freon). But when he was working on his new-age fridge, he noticed that one of his custom-made nozzles blasted water across the room. Lonnie, bless his soul, realised he could put that sort of air pump into creating some sort of super powerful water gun. Originally dubbed the “Power Drencher”, that idea eventually became the Super Soaker.
