Longing to hop through dimensions a la Rick Sanchez from the cartoon Rick and Morty? Then you’re in luck because DIY Prop Shop has tackled a replica of Rick’s portal gun, and they made it for under $50. The build uses pretty straightforward materials such as PVC pipe, styrene, a whisk, and more — you might have to take a quick trip to the hardware store, but chances are good you have everything you need already on hand.
