Long-time Panitch Schwarze Client Lonnie Johnson's Super Soaker Featured as an Invention that Changed the World

September 28, 2021

In its countdown of the "20 Inventions that Changed the World," MentalFloss ranked Lonnie Johnson’s Super Soaker in the Top 5.

MentalFloss described the invention as an exciting development compared to the water toys of the past:

“For decades, squirt guns were flimsy pieces of plastic that could barely muster enough power to water a houseplant. Then the first Super Soaker—then called the Power Drencher—hit the market in 1990, bringing along with it a Schwarzenegger-esque machismo and a sophisticated air-pressure system that promised to drench unsuspecting targets from far further than previous water guns.”
