Enhance Your Halloween With This DIY Prop Minigun

Hacking the Holidays

Found on Make: Projects, this excellent DIY minigun prop by Douglas Desrochers.

The basic construction is relatively simple – with a standard 1/2 inch copper pipe serving as the main support for lightweight tubes (barrels) that spin and emit light when they pass in front of a high intensity LED source. A cheap cordless drill – something from Harbor Freight – would be the easiest way to start.
