The Making of a Blade Runner Prop Blaster

When you’re building a prop replica from a kit — which you can find online at sites such as Etsy — the first step is knowing what the kit includes and the instructions. Or is it? Bill Doran of Punished Props proves that’s not necessarily the case with a new video that focuses on making a Blade Runner prop pistol from a mystery kit. It’s a mystery because Doran bought it from a friend who’d had it around a while and wasn’t certain about the origins. Doran starts with sorting the pieces and assembled the prop live to get tips from viewers about which kit it might be. The above video goes over part one of the build and gives some helpful tips on getting organized and cleaning up pieces before assembly.

You can view more of Punished Props’ creations at YouTube.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
