Games inspire, they really do. While some end up living the thug life (which we don’t recommend), others take the passion to create. A German cyberweapons hobbyist, Patrick Priebe, took the love for Fallout the game to a new level by creating a Fallout inspired rifle. This aluminium and brass ensemble shoots foam earplugs, saving a few lives and taking none.
Priebe’s custom rifle is based on a classic Henry repeating rifle, and works as an aiming laser and a cigarette lighter too. Pressing the trigger halfway gives a run to the lighter’s fluid gas to flow into a transparent Plexiglass combustion chamber. Through the air pump, which is switched on separately, air is delivered to the chamber. A complete swing on the trigger releases an electric arc in the chamber which ignites the mix. From the pressure, the rifles harmless bullets shoot out.. the ear plugs!
A magazine contains four earplugs and the new one is loaded on to the rifle as soon as the lever is released. The choice of replacing the foam ear plugs with a zesty pointed ear plug exists for an extra punch. These plugs are stuffed into a hort length of aluminum tube with a metallic metal point if you really want to go badass with this baby. Check it out here:
