I always find Star Trek’s utopia future pretty dumb. The human race is never going to be perfect and live in harmony. Because… This thing. This gun from the future is all kinds of bad-ass. It looks like Smith and Wesson made love to TRON and left this bright glowing and deadly baby on our doorstep.
This is a fully-functioning coilgun that launches metal bolts with the power of electricity. The coilgun technology you see here was all jammed inside and around a G36 airsoft gun.
It has a night vision infrared camera and viewfinder, lasers, and a magazine that holds batteries instead of bullets. And if you saw those three lasers at the end of the rifles barrels pointing your way, you’d better duck.
The future’s so bright… I gotta wear Kevlar.
