Phaser - StarTrek

The original StarTrek phaser, and all the variations that it spawned in the later series are all classics. Sure, phasers look a little gay nowadays in relation some of bigger and badder weapons imagined by Hollywood, but who doesn't see the appeal of the being able to instantly stun or vaporize your target with TV remote? The phaser's awesome power, firing effect, and deceptively innocent shape make it an instant classic.
