Rock, paper, scissors. Paper beats rock, rock beats scissors, scissor beats paper. How do those holiest of rules apply to fire and water? Well, let’s blast a water hose at a flame thrower while the flame thrower is firing off at the water hose to find out. Guess who’s the winner?
Fire hoses transfer millions of gallons of water at hundreds of pounds of pressure. They're tough, hard wearing pieces of kit—so what better use for them when they're retired than a waterproof iPad case?
We're not firefighters, so this idea may be completely crazy. But if we fought fires for a living, we'd feel a lot more comfortable doing battle with this mean-looking gas-propelled missile launcher concept.
