Laser aficionado Patrick Priebe has created a scarily realistic working replica of the Plasma Cutter featured in the game Dead Space. According to Gizmag, Priebe spent about 200 hours building the weapon, which shoots a total of five laser beams — three green lasers for aiming, and two blue, 1,500 milliwatt beams for burning. As demonstrated in the video below, the weapon can shift between horizontal and vertical orientations, and even ejects energy packs after every round. It doesn't seem capable of inflicting too much damage, though it can certainly slice through wood or plastic.

Priebe hasn't released any instructions on how to build your own Plasma Cutter, but he is accepting orders through his website.
