Overwatch: Lucio’s Prop Blaster Build Final Video @adafruit @johnedgarpark
Amp it up! Here’s the finished prop gun John Park has been building in his workshop — Lúcio’s sonic blaster from Overwatch. The parts have all been modeled and 3D printed (the larger one’s with the help of the amazing Ruiz Brothers and their Very Huge Printers), the electronics have moved from breadboards to PermaProto boards, and it’s been assembled just in time to heal your teammates and occasionally blast your enemies.
The video shows the prop in action, and covers some helpful tips for making your own complex prop (or other) projects.
Here are the previous guides part 1 and part 2, stay tuned for a full write-up of the final build coming soon.
