Tesla Handheld Directed-Energy Projector Model #34
A Lego raygun inspired by the students in my classroom.
About this creation
Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was one of the greatest inventors of all time. His work with electromagnatism and alternating current helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution.

Later in life, Tesla was experimenting with projecting concentrated non-dispersive energy through natural media. What you see here is his 34th attempt at his invention to "end to all war".

It features:


An apparatus for producing manifestations of energy in free air.



A mechanism for generating tremendous electrical force; liquid mercury or tungsten accelerated via high voltage.



A means of intensifying and amplifying the force developed by the second mechanism.



A new method for producing a tremendous electrical repelling force. The device you now see before you.

















This creation features LED Brick-Lights
by ArtiFex Creations



The four cone-levers on the top of the device actually control the electronics embedded within.

i have a question, are you referring to atomic robo?

Quoting forced sim It's funny because Nikola Tesla (for lack of better word) invented AC or Alternating Current, and you called this the "directed energy" there are two types of electricity; AC (which i just told you about) and DC which is direct current. this should be called alternated energy projector if you named it after Tesla
I think you may be confusing the meaning of the words direct and directed. Direct current refers to a unilateral flow of electrical charge. When I use the term "directed" I'm choosing the meaning "aimed" or "focused". In my opinion, I have chosen an apt name for this creation.

Sweet, love the way it lights up. Completely awesome, just like Tesla. Tesla's the kinda guy you would expect to have a few hundred of these things mounted on tanks; all of them powered wirelessly from a power source on the other side of the planet, or a different planet altogether. :D Simply Epic.

Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers, this beauty looks definitely like something Buster Crabbe would hold in his hands and Ming the Merciless would want to kill for. Bravo. I hope I don´t have to be worried, since this is "inspired" by your students.

Gorgeous! Love the colours, that pulsating blue just leaps right off the brown. Awesome techniques used, I can't even figure out how you built most of it! This belongs on a table at Brickworld. Those lights really add to the playability of it, the kids are gonna just "Oooo" and "ahhhh" when they see it!

If only more of Tesla's inventions survived, we'd have a much healthier planet & less dependence on oil... Awesome creation to tribute Tesla's work and great way to show kids what Tesla has contributed to this world. Very creative way of using the light's flash patterns! Maybe Tesla's coil would be another great creation.

Quoting Jay O'Bee That is beautiful, but can you hold it by the handle without it breaking?
You have to hold the barrel up at a slight angle or give a second hand support to avoid it breaking. The barrel is actually very stable, it's the connection of the tubes on the rear at an angle that compromises structural integrity. I'll probably revisit this issue.
