DIY 12-Foot Inflatable Death Star: Your Lack of an Air Compressor is Disturbing

 |  |  |  |  |  May 4, 2014


If you haven’t already heard from a million other people, today is Star Wars day. So I figured we couldn’t have May the Fourth arrive without at least one Star Wars post on the site. So here goes. In celebration of the day, our friend Caleb Kraft (of Hack a Day and now Make: fame) has gone and built himself a giant inflatable Death Star.

Or more precisely, he has bought himself a giant 12-foot beach ball, and covered it in fabric and paint to look like The Ultimate Weapon in the Universe. If Caleb brings this thing to the beach, people will cower in fear – unless he happens to run into Princess Leia in her bikini – then all bets are off.

Want to make your own Death Star Beach ball? Just assemble a clone army and head on over to Make:, where Caleb will show you how.
