Just as gunpowder and the atomic bomb revolutionized human warfare as we know it, this clever invention by Josh Malone, a Texas-based father of eight, will change summer water balloon warfare forever. His Bunch O Balloons hose fixture is capable of filling 37 water balloons in 20 seconds (or, Malone claims, 100 in a minute).

The fixture works by splitting a water hose’s stream into 37 separate hoses, each of which fills a small water balloon. These water balloons each have their own small black elastic band, which means that they close themselves when the user gently shakes them off of the hose.
