Description How To

Build a Raygun Vector Weapon, as seen in Volume 35 of Make Magazine!

The Vector Weapon is a small, lo-fi, electronic noisemaker circuit that makes classic, raygun-style sounds, from the classic "pew pew" noises to evolving death-ray-type tones. Assembly of the Vector Weapon kit is fantastic for aspiring soldering pros, considering the variety of components involved in the build. You can find instructions for the build on Make Projects (see the "How To" tab for links) and assemble it in under 1 hour! The three knobs control what we call "wubs", "bwoops", and "bip bips" -- turn them to make your own custom raygun sounds!

Add the acrylic enclosure for an additional $20 or purchase the electronics only version for those that wish to 3D print or fabricate their own. For a great example of a custom Vector Weapon build, check out this one by MAKE community member Genji and his son Desmond.

What a blast! December 4, 2013
Reviewer: Rob W. from Sunnyvale, CA United States  
This is my first Maker shed purchase. I got this kit a couple of weeks ago and I can't keep it out of my kid's hands. It's so much fun making different sounds like R2D2, birds chirping and of course Star Wars blaster sounds. The kit was easy to put together and the PCB board is very well marked for a beginner. You'll need some basic soldering skills. I also bought the acrylic enclosure and painted it like the example in the article. Because it is laser cut it comes premasked with the protective paper, just peel off where you want paint, so easy.  I added a super bright green LED for some light effects too. It really looks awesome.
