Ratata Gun by Tomm Velthuis
Awesome RATATA gun from Dutch designer Tomm Velthuis. Built of 11 wooden pieces, this intriguing toy when put together form a real-life dimension machine gun.
From the designer's words:
Eleven pieces of wood in a wooden box. A blocks set, just a toy. Until we start to play with it. When we put pieces together, it becomes a full size machine gun. People should play more, really play more. With each other. Away from that computer, get outside! You don't play with a gun, yet it looks friendly, with its smooth edges and a pleasant light color. There's two emotions hidden inside that provide food for thought.
