Tear Gun

Tear Gun is a device that allows users to shoot their tears as an act of self-defense when the correct words cannot be found.

The gun works by catching tears under the wearer’s eye with a silicon pocket. The tears are then piped into a small bottle where they are frozen, and then loaded into the gun where the frozen projectiles can be fired. Inspired by its designer’s frustration with being unable to adequately defend herself during academic reviews, Tear Gun is designed to inflict no physical harm to its target, but instead to offer its user a sense of emotional release when the trigger is pulled.
