Neo Victorian Rayguns from The Weta Workshop

Manmelter 3600ZThese creations are just too sweet.

Issuing forth from the fetid and possibly incriminating imagination of Weta Workshop designer Greg Broadmore come RAYGUNS: Dr, Grordborts Infallible Aether Oscillators! … Bespangled in fine detail and with various (most likely quite dangerous) moving parts, these wave weapons of yesteryear are the perfect ornament for a gentleman’s study or a deterring centerpiece for a lady’s powder room or chiffonier…

Seeing these works of art makes me want to pick up my razor knife and tube bender and have a go at making something like this. I used to make toy guns along time ago. They were never as sophisticated as these but they were fun to build.
