Three Rayguns

Here we go, more rayguns...
While we're at it, lets get the S word out of the way - Steampunk. There, I said it.
Really though, I would like to present what I am tentatively calling the magnum opus of my undergraduate career (barring something really clever coming up in the next two months).
Three found object rayguns, each with their own effect. The small silver unit hides a 6 shot flash cannon connected to the original trigger, the large orange and brown unit contains a blinding flash bulb and the standing turret has a pinpoint light effect, Jacob's ladder and fog machine. All three together took about 6-8 months of work spread out with a full class load and part time work study (scenic design major, gotta build the sets...)
I built these primarily to teach myself about leds and basic electronics. The background is my apartment/workspace in Richmond, Virginia.

    This is pretty nifty! Looks like it came out of a movie, nicely done. I voted for you in the I Made It contest and I gave you 5 stars. Why when you are the only one rating it gives the over all rating of 4.09 I do not know, I'm sure it has something to do with percentages of views and such. Good luck! Looking forward to seeing more of your works in the future.

    Thank you! Honestly I was teasing about steampunk; I've been a fan for years, it just seems to have a stigma. I'll give daylight a try, however my camera lens recently broke - here's to the imadeit contest!

    You have done a nice job of those, I think you could take some better pictures, get them outside in the sunshine! Always makes for better pictures.

    (I would say you could place them in a cyberpunk category, if you do not like the S word)
