Hat Launchers are objects that appear in Super Mario Odyssey. They appear as yellow and orange gears with a blue tip that are mostly seen floating above pits. When Cappy is thrown into a Hat Launcher, he will be launched in whatever direction the Hat Launcher is facing. If multiple Hat Launchers are present in a row, a chain reaction will occur and Cappy will keep being launched until there are no more Hat Launchers. They can be used to collect far away coins or to activate a far away Pulse Beam.
