Check out this crazy-looking camera setup that looks like it can double as some kind of futuristic energy weapon. Engadget spotted and photographed this strange kit over at the CP+ trade show happening right now in Japan. Olympus is showing off a gear combo that’s possible with its new Air lens camera.

It’s a combination of an Olympus Air camera, a 40-150mm f/2.8 lens, a new EE-1 red dot sight hot shoe attachment, a smartphone as the live view LCD, and a grip that has mode dials and a shutter button.

Here’s another view showing what the camera setup looks like from the back:
