It’s the perfect weapon to fight evil, and by “fight evil” I mean scare the crap out of your pets.

We’ve previously featured the works of FriskP, the steampunk themed designer whose creations have dazzled on Japan’s video site Niconico douga for years now. This latest offering, a gun that appears to channel mystic energy, is certainly no exception. In fact, it may just be FriskP’s most impressive work to date.

Of course, it doesn’t really shoot anything…or does it? Who knows what goes on in the astral plane?

Nevertheless, viewers were understandably blown away by the CG effects come to life and expressed their unanimous sense of awe and yearning.

“It really feels like it’s coming out when you pull the trigger.”
“Get out! Is that real?!”
“That’s just awesome and I want it.”
“I want that so freaking bad.”

The video also explains how the gun is made, but don’t get your hopes up. First you’ll need to acquire a Phantom, developed by a tech start-up called Life is Style. The Phantom is a “versa-writer” which works on the same premise as those fans that display a clock by spinning lights around really fast.

It was these same fans that FriskP once used to create a steampunk watch.

Although cool, the resolution of this technology was noticeably low, making its applications limited to fan-clocks and variations thereof for years until now. The Phantom takes this principle and boosts the image quality considerably, so you get something like this!

The Life is Style website appears to be coy regarding the price of actual Phantoms, which generally means they’ll be pretty pricey. Serious purchasers should inquire with them directly, but it appears for the time being they are catering to high-rollers like event planners and other pros.

If you manage to get past that step, then hopefully you’ll have saved enough money to get a 3-D printer if you haven’t done so already. This will be needed to create the mounting that will attach the Phantom unit to a toy gun of your choosing. Of course, you’ll also need to do the modelling on your favorite CAD program.

After that it’s just a matter of designing the animation that the Phantom will project. FriskP notes that this can mercifully be done for free using Nive2 software, so it might be wise to start with this step to see if you’ve got what it takes to make such a gun first.

If you happen to have both the means and the know-how to make your own DIY occult gun, then you’ll be treated to hours of sitting in your room going, “Chk chk, gsssssssshhhhhh, pakaw! Take that Dormammu!” Afterwards, you can search for more inspiration to guide your next DIY project, because clearly you have a knack for it.

If not, take heart that you’re just like most of humanity, and wait patiently from one of these geniuses to mass produce these things so that we may all go, “gssssssshhhhh, pakaw!” too and rejoice.
