Oh man. I want Adam Savage’s shop so bad.


Man there was a local maker space doing a weekend build for a few hundred bucks of this. Really wanted to do it, but time and money…


Not sure it should be called a blaster. In the movie it looked like a normal gun, with some electronics which do …something undefined.

okay cuz they are make believe

Blinkenlights make everything better.

Right?? His builds are completely fascinating and I always learn something from them, but at the same time, they’re so frustrating, because there’s always a moment of him saying, “Ok, now I’m going to mill out this part using this one-of-a-kind machine from 1920 that I rehabbed.” I’m over here trying to make props out of insulation foam with X-acto knives!


When I was a kid, we used to call one of these a #laserhandcannon.
