SteamPunk is all the rage. The genre confounds and delights me with its emphasis on retro, neo-industrial metal machinery. Art that whirs, cranks, groans; and yes, occasionally emits steam is just too intriguing not to be cool. So it is. Cool, that is. And the reigning metal master in the kingdom is Dr. Grordbort's lead designer, Greg Broadmore. Greg is a speaker at the very first ever SteamPunk conference held in (where else?) San Francisco. Here's a description of the piece above from the website.
The Rayguns: Dr. Grordborts Infallible Aether Oscillators, are a line of immensely dangerous yet simple to operate wave oscillation weapons.
Meticulously built to the exacting standards and plans of Dr. Grordbort, these weapons, bespangled in fine detail and with various (most likely quite dangerous) moving parts are the perfect addition to a gentleman's study or a deterring centerpiece for a lady's powder room or chiffonier.
These highly limited edition pieces and made out of metal with articulated parts. Every full-size Raygun comes with its own Moon-velvet lined case, Certificate of Authenticity and an assortment of implements and crafting tools. Not only that, these weapons are hefty - with the larger guns weighing in at over 7 pounds these are no light investment.
