Who You Gonna Call? Homemade DIY Proton Pack Makers That’s Who! | #ghostbusters
Check out this amazing Ghostbusters replica Proton pack with embedded soundtrack option (video below). The pack is the work of Chris Brewin, and was spotted at the Ghostbusters United Community Facebook group. You can see in the video the switch for initiating the audio playback is between the pack frame and the Proton pack, easily accessed with your left hand while wearing the unit.
Here’s a view of the inside of the pack, showing lots of space for all the electronic components and wiring:

And here’s the video of the unit in operation – it looks and sounds amazing:
