Tested In-Depth Ghost Trap

testedindepthghostrap

Sean Charlesworth and Norman Chan from Tested posted a video talking about a new 3D printed Ghost Trap. (GBI Blog Post, March 10, 2016) While that could have been it, the guys who could have a new career at Ghostbusters International made a 30 minute video going to the in-depths (my humor isn’t what got me this job) of their 3D printed Ghost Trap.

We’ve shown you Sean’s Ghost Trap replica prop, but there’s a lot more to talk about in terms of the 3D-printed model’s individual components, parts design, and electronics that brings it alive. It’s a kit designed for 3D printing and assembly, after all. Sean and Jeremy explain how they collaborated on the lights and sounds on the trap, which are appropriately activated by the 3d-printed pedal!


If you have access to a capable 3D printer Tested has provided the files for creating your own working, (remember, it doesn’t really catch ghosts because of our IP and the training it takes) 3D Ghost Trap.

The Making Of A Tested Ghost Trap

makingtested3dghostrap.png

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.

Related: BaronVonJello 3D Ghost Trap (GBI Blog Post, January 8, 2015)

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.

Ghostbusters Valentine’s Day Cards

idwslimervalcard

The world didn’t end thanks to a bad psychic prediction and the fact my employers, the Ghostbusters altered events nearly 3 decades ago. Today is Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2016.

Perhaps you’re tired of the same old cards with hearts. Or you’d like a Ghostbusters themed Valentine’s card. Although we didn’t have these in the 1980s, we have them today thanks to Ghostbusters, IDW Publishing, and artist Dan Schoening. (Deviant Art)

Choose from four if you’re a lucky terror dog you can use all four.

Elaine’s 2016 Valentine’s Day Prediction Update

In the late 80s, Dr. Venkman had a show, World Of The Psychic. Respectable people within our business (sorry Milt) didn’t really want to be interviewed about the unusual in the world. Something Dr. V and my employers are pretty familiar with. Peter couldn’t even get the guy who bends the spoons.

On one of his last shows he had two guests on, psychics. With respect to Elaine, you weren’t only wrong, you were so wrong. The world won’t be ending on February 14, 2016. Milt would have been right, my employers figured out what was going on, went back into business, dealt with “mood slime,” stopped Vigo, and even received a key to the city.
