Nintendo has recently challenged fans to create a “functioning” replica of Luigi’s Mansion’s foremost weapon against ghosts, the Poltergust 5000. It may seem like a daunting challenge at first – replicate a ghost-fighting peripheral – until you remember that the Poltergust 5000 in the game is basically just a repurposed vacuum cleaner.
The folks over at Iam8bit took up the challenge and posted a video of their Poltergust 5000 in action below:
Of course, the thing won’t actually manage to bust any ghosts, as there’s a couple of things that need to be addressed first. Such as A. ) do ghosts exist in the first place? and B. ) can they be sucked through a hose? Otherwise, the only thing that this real life Poltergust can bust is dust.
