Has anyone seen one of these at a launch yet? I'm not aware of any commercial products based on it yet but it sounds interesting.

A FART GUN??? And they PATENTED it? What IS this country coming to. ;) OTOH, how much different is it than new Estes 'Hydrogen Power' rocket? Hmm, an alternate fuel source. I wonder if this falls in the realm of EX? Anyone know the ISP of colonic gas and gaseous air?
