We’re still about a month away from the official start of summer, but there's already a wave of groundbreaking, splash-making toys on the market. And these electronically enhanced water blasters and aqua shooters aren't the leaky plastic squirt guns of our childhoods. If the Super Soaker was a game-changer in the '90s, then consider these superior soakers.

According to Wired, these are so advanced, they're not even for kids. They're designed specifically with adults in mind. Which is good, since most kids won't be able to save up enough allowance to fork over nearly $200 on a water gun that features LCD screens, LED lights, USB connectivity, and even advanced gaming modes.

For instance, the latest blaster from the brand Spyra can shoot “water bullets”—individual 30-milliliter bursts, around the same measure as a shot glass—at targets up to 50 feet away. Just imagine squirting the dog or your buddy with that kind of precision.
