Alright. Here's the scoop. I was looking over the grenade thread below this, and I figured, since most of the nerf guns we work with here are based solely on air pressure, I should stick with that for a grenade? So thus, I have my double-bladder design.

Posted Image

The six brassy looking things that have a gray thing (nerf "shrapnel") are placed around the outer bladder (blue). The cyan stands for the air inside the unpressurized balloon/bladder. As you can see, the green straw or blowing tube blows right into the inner bladder, filling it up with air (purple). The inner (red) bladder is completely inside the outer bladder, which is why the straw is needed to blow up the balloon externally. The arrow of the blowing tube is just to show that you can make it as long as you want.

Posted Image
Here you see that the outer bladder has a knot or a firm airtight seal, enclosing the inner bladder completely. Currently, you'd be pinching that spot, or twisting it so the air doesnt come out. I have to figure out a way to make it so that there is a delay before the air comes rushing out. You'd have taken the straw out now, since you don't need it anymore.

Posted Image

The need for a mechanism that delays the release of the inner bladder is obvious because of the above picture. The air goes out, filling up the outer bladder and firing off all the nerf "shrapnel" in different directions.

I tried doing it, but two problems have arisen.
1) explained above, a delay is needed.
2) It's really hard to blow up a balloon when there is another outside of it. I don't wanna pass out every time I go to throw a grenade...

I can see them.
When you did it did the grenade actually work?

I don't get how the shrapnel 'goes'. Are those all barrels or are they just stuck onto the balloon.

You know, I would have thought it MIGHT work, then you completely lost me with how the balloon works. See, if it EXPANDED when you through it, the pressure might push the darts out. Other than that, I have no idea how that works. Explain to me on AIM.

shyboy, NSF, you guys are going to have to wise up that a lot of people here use dodgy hosts [that dont support image linking]. Despiter our best efforts to convert them to such hosts as photobucket.com, they still fucking do it...

If you've already tried Copy and Pasting the URL, then and only then can you whinge... <_<

Oh no, i am having a go at you, but not directly. You shouldn't have to do those methods just to see a picture.

Grenade wise; i havnt had much of a chance to look over it, but being a balloon construction it should be cheap and replacable.

So the inside balloon is popped, sending the darts out the caseing? It might need more than 1 balloon to create enough pressure to send the darts flying.

I realized that. When I did it, I didn't make the shrapnel holders onto the balloon. They actually go through, so that when air is released it pushes the shrapnel out of the barrels (hopefully that clears stuff up). WHen I did it, the outer balloon did fill up. But I also almost blacked out....AKA I need a better way to do this..
Taita, the cheapness was one of the reasons why I wanted to do this. I wanted something you could make in quantities. As far as pressure goes, your right, a balloon will send the shrapnel probably an amazing 1 and a half feet at most... Definately gonna hurt guys!
ompa, the pressure is supposed to push the darts out. That's the idea. But i need a way to hold in the pressure till the grenade lands...

So, the outside case is also a balloon.

Bingo.

But I need a better idea for an outside case. I'm looking for an item that is cheap, can hit people, and can fit a balloon or some sort of bladder with a lotta air, and etc..you get the pic.
