 About Spyra One 

Spyra One is the first water gun ever that shoots powerful, individual water bullets instead of a single stream of water. Each water bullet equals the amount of a shot glass and clearly hits targets up to 7.5 meters away. The tank holds 25 water bullets that are counted on a digital display. An automatic integrated pump refills and repressurizes the Spyra One when its mouth is held into the water. There is no need to pump up the water gun anymore: a special tank technology guarantees full pressure and range from the first to the last shot. The Spyra One is powered by a rechargeable, integrated battery that lasts for a whole day of playing.

Spyra One also is the first water gun in the world that enables immersive tactical teamplay without any need for protective gear or expensive supplies. With Spyra One, anyone can start a water fight anywhere.

 About company and founders 

Spyra was founded in 2015 by water gun visionary and product designer Sebastian Walter.

He was later joined by co-founders Rike Brand, communications and marketing specialist, and Marius Rudolf, sales expert and supply chain manager. Seven team members in mechanical and electrical engineering as well as communications and marketing currently support the founding team.

Spyra’s headquarters are located in the heart of Munich, Germany, right next to the Fire Department.
