Obviously any Star Trek fan would enjoy the Season 4 Episode 1 Black Mirror TV Show on Netflix. It's got a Trek vibe mixed with virtual reality. The main character likes an old TV show called Space Fleet. In the episode they have feature a Space Fleet phaser (reference below). Anyone know what prop maker made this and if we can get a replica of it?

I make the album "Public" in the privacy settings and then click on the uploaded picture and look to the right to copy the IMG code and paste it in my post.

Drat, I was hoping someone had an idea. maybe I should see if the credits show anything.

To me it looks like a combination of 2 found items and a bit of custom work to get them to fit. The main body and the piece at the very front look like they're the found items. The main body looks like it could be some sort RFID scanner like posted above or some other handheld scanning device. The very front piece looks almost like it's an old cell phone, but it's probably not that, maybe an old point and shoot digital camera? Then the custom piece would be the sliver block on the front sides.

I'd guess it was an original design, though maybe inspired by some found products.

Looks like it was modeled in Infinity Builder. Never heard of that 3D software before??? Oh, that's the virtual reality software that is used in the episode, so just a part of the script.
