Back in March Anovos Productions LLC teased their proton pack replica (GBI Blog Post, March 14, 2016) was coming soon. Yesterday around dinner time most ghostheads received Anovos’ Ghostbusters newsletter announcing their Proton Pack Kit.

Sony Invents Ghost Catching Technology

Or so they claim. News off the Japanese servers reports Sony developed “the worlds first Proton Pack.”

That’s a bold claim considering my employers Drs. Stantz, Spengler, and I guess to some extent Venkman invented the world’s first Proton Pack (along with other ghost technology) more then 30 years ago.

Also how did a fictional scientist work with a real one to create a 2016 Proton Pack? 😉 Continue reading

A 3D Proton Pack

Prior to learning Phillip Avery created a 3D Printable Ghost Trap we knew ghosthead Tommy B was building a Proton Pack from printing 3D parts. As far as we knew (until today) this is the first 1:1 scale prop Proton Pack made by printing necessary pieces. We really like what Tommy B created. We’re pleased its a prop, not operational high tech (and potentially dangerous) equipment.

Tommy B used a Makerbot Replica 2 3D Printer to print the parts. Parts files came from software engineer Tony Goacher and are hosted at Thingiverse. Printable 3D files can be used for individual, non commercial use. Continue reading
