There are just 10 days to go until the new Ghostbusters arrives, and Paul Feig’s team of ghost-busting leading ladies are giving their new gadgets a test drive ahead of their theatrical debut.

A new clip from the movie shows Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy), and Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) trying out a pair of gadgets invented by Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon) to help them battle paranormal forces.

Patty first tries out the Ghost Chipper and then Abby tests the Proton Glove, which is touted as being good for “hand-to-spectre combat.” As Abby points out, it would also make for a pretty dangerous high-five.
