Cardboard Laser Pistol ~ Fallout 3 Inspired


Introduction: Cardboard Laser Pistol ~ Fallout 3 Inspired

About: AKA Roborovski, and Cowscankill for several years. I'm a mechanical engineering undergrad.

Laser gun I built inspired form Fallout 3 after staying up all night with my friend. Made in about 3 days with cardboard, hot glue, plaster, and junk. Best paintjob so far.

Enjoy :D

    looks more like the laser detonator from the Fallout New Vegas DLC Lonesome Road

    Um yeah, I know. It's inspired by Fallout 3, not a replica.

    Very well done! With the release of New Vegas, a group of friends and I have all gotten obsessed with Fallout. For Christmas, I am making each of them something from the game. Some of this may include Fallout 3 Food, a Pipboy, and now...this! While it isn't something directly from Fallout, you sure did a good job of making it something that could possibly be seen in the game. I also very much enjoy some of your other creations on Instructables. 4.5* and subscribed!

    Thanks, though there will be much to improve upon ;)
    I went from a hardcore Fallout 3 player to a die hard New Vegas addict.
    I hope to make something better in the future from New Vegas... not sure when... maybe this Christmas! (depends)

    Haha, I'm with you on the New Vegas addict part :) I am currently working on a pip-boy and seeing that there is not a single instructable on it so far, I would love to see what you could whip up.

    Oh man.
    That has been an idea for a while. Would include all twisty knobs and lights.
    But I can't really make any electronic thing, so it might just have to be an mp3 holder or something.

    Yup I was thinking the same thing. What I might end up doing is maybe finding some old GPS or iTouch and creating a sort of arm case for it if I am not able to figure out the wiring.

    Oh man, an touchscreen iPod or something would be seriously legit.
    Hmm...What else is there? Well a copy of a medical wiki or something to cover personal stats, possibly some text documents/spreadsheets to maintain items and finances? Haha, I seriously want one of these now!
    (and it would have to have a flashlight too)

    Yes! The flashlight is the most important part! How else am I supposed to find the rad roaches? I just began working on it today. If you want I'll send you a pic when i start to make some progress.

    Awesome, take pictures of the progress and upload as a slideshow :D
