In sci-fi anime Psycho Pass, authorities wield a precrime suppressor called the “Dominator.” We’ve seen a model version for sale before, but we haven’t seen one like this.

This real-life version of the portable brain scanner gun can even transform like it does in the anime.

According to ASCII, this one-to-one scale recreation is even outfitted with a small camera and can connect to smartphones for real-time streaming via smartphone app. All this isn’t cheap: the Dominator is priced at 86,184 yen (US$737) with pre-orders starting on February 18 in Japan.

Neat. I don’t know that I believe any bit of paraphernalia is worth that money, but I’m happy it exists and I can look at it.

Also, I need to get this out, that show is fantastic but it also has one of the all time worst dropoffs in writing quality between seasons 1 and 2. I know all the behind the scenes reasons, but nevertheless, it stings.

But hey, season 1 is a perfect binge watch and wraps up very well, so there.
