Electro Art Works Makes Ray Guns a Reality

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  March 4, 2009


When I was a kid, I really wanted to be Marvin the Martin. No, not because of his stylish scrub-brush headgear or his oversize clown shoes. Nope, it was the awesome destructive power of his ACME Ray Gun that I envied.

Now, thanks to sculptor Andy Hill of Electro Art Works, you can own your very own one-of-a-kind ray gun. Each of Andy’s creations has a Buck Rogers-esque retro-future style, and is handmade from a mix of recycled and found objects.

And while none of these ray guns contain any circuitry that could actually blow up a planet, most of them do have a spring-loaded trigger to make you FEEL powerful.

Each one dons a perfectly appropriate name like the Leviton Vaporizer, The Exterminator or my personal favorite, the Buzzkill 5000.

Each one is a unique work of art, complete with a backstory about the battles and far-off planets they’ll be used on in the distant future (…the year 2000 – I just had to say that).

Some of the models shown above have already been sold, but a couple are currently available for about $300 to $350 (USD), a pretty good deal considering your plans for interplanetary domination.

You can check out all of Andy Hill’s retro-futuristic ray guns, as well as a bunch of of really cool robot sculptures at Electro Art Works.
