Throughout all of science fiction, a few weapons stand out as the pinnacle of future awesomeness. Tops among them: The Star Trek phaser. Well, this guy got tired of waiting for the future and decided to build one in his garage. And it rocks.

The exact specs aren't available, but the folks over at have deduced that the device is question is essentially a modified phaser toy casing, fitted with a high-powered laser pointer, perhaps via a Playstation 3.

The phaser doesn't seem to have stun or kill modes, though the video below does show off its balloon-popping abilities.

Plus, the rigged-up phaser sounds are a very nice touch.
