Philosopher’s Sting

These intricate weapons look less like firearms and more like horizontal wind sculptures. Their interlocking geometric forms lengthen and compress to create sympathetic vibrations between themselves and the target. Once the right frequency is reached, the targeted area is transmuted into a small bolus of foreign material that disrupts the target’s functions, biological or otherwise.
