The Making Of A Tested Ghost Trap

A couple of the creative and intelligent folks at Tested (who aren’t busting myths) created a Ghostbusters/II Ghost Trap replica using computers, creativity, screws, (always need those) and a 3D printer.

This 3D Ghost Trap was designed and built by Sean Charlesworth. It works too, in the look, feel, and sounds, not actually catching ghosts. Let’s face it, catching ghosts should only be done by trained professionals. Also we own the patents would never allow anyone that should come work for us to build an actual working Ghost Trap.

If you have access to a 3D printer, Sean’s files will be available at a later time, if they aren’t already.

Ghostheads don’t know yet what Ghostbusters (80s, Real, Extreme, (probably not) 2016, etc will be in a new animated movie, what the story will be, and really any animated details.
