Mass Effect Omni-tool Replica is No Hologram

by Lambert Varias

Mass Effect certainly inspires some of the best replicas and cosplay I’ve ever seen. Here’s another winner from Chris Myles, a replica of the Omni-tool, the coolest looking computer in the galaxy. It even has the Omni Blade enhancement that debuted in Mass Effect 3.

We know how skilled Myles is when it comes to creating videogame replicas because of the ones he made based on Portal. For the Omni-tool he used 2.5mm sheet acrylic, which he laser cut, heated and then bent by hand.

Where are the hardware parts of the Omni-tool anyway? Are they in the user’s glove? And how can a hologram be used for stabbing?

    The blade is not technically a hologram; the omni-tool rapidly manufactures a silicon-carbide blade and a hologram extends over it to illuminate the blade so that the user doesn’t burn himself/herself. This is done because the blade is nearly transparent, and someone could easily burn or maim themselves with it.
