The Hydrodisplacer was a gadget that could suck up large amounts of water.
Ratchet & Clank
The Hydrodisplacer was a Gadgetron gadget that Ratchet could use to drain and fill pools with water therefore "displacing" it. The volume of water that could be contained inside a Hydrodisplacer was far greater than the gadget's external volume may have indicated (in this case, 50,000 liters). Clank found the Hydrodisplacer at the Blarg Tactical Research Station while exploring the ships. It uses Quantum compression technology to manipulate the water particles and place them into a compression tank.
Behind the scenes
- The Hydrodisplacer used to look much different than the final version. The early Hydrodisplacer is seen in the profile picture, while the one found in the actual game is seen in the smaller picture.
- This gadget likely inspired the OmniSoaker from Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time as it functions and looks very similar to the Hydrodisplacer.
