Also known as an air vortex cannon or air bazooka, the Airzooka works by using the volume of air in its plastic container, and the shape of the containers' edges to create a toroidal (or doughnut-shaped) effect.
The process begins when the elastic launcher is pulled back, increasing the volume of air inside the container. When the launcher is released, the volume of the air rapidly decreases. The air slows down in the centre of the Airzooka, and speeds up along the edges where it hits the telescoped angles of the plastic shell, thus creating a donought-shaped air vortex.
The air vortex travels some distance and retains its energy sufficiently to cause a disturbance when it strikes a person or object. Try blowing-out a candle from 6 meters away!
