The Abrogator

The Abrogator harnesses the power of steam along with the ideas of Tesla and Marconi to create a weapon which emits "radio waves", invisible oscillating rays of energy, which will disorient and eventually remove any problem you may encounter.

It is designed to be used for short periods of time with access to a nearby steam source for recharging the weapon. The steam recharge port is at the front of The Abrogator. The steam travels back into the central chamber to power a dynamo creating the electricity needed to emit the radio waves out of the radial antennae.

As the steam cools it drops into the fresnel chamber and travels through the condensor coil. A thermal siphon effect takes place, with the cool vapor helping to reduce the heat output during use.

The weapon is discharged using the internal static electricity of the wielder. By placing only two fingers on the stock the weapon will prime itself. Upon all four fingers being placed upon it, the weapon will discharge.

  1. Hi Chris –

    I’m reaching out to you to see if you are interested in exhibiting and selling your art work in some our upcoming Steampunk Art Gallery venues. My companies, ModVic LLC ( and SteamPuffin ( specialize in Victorian home restoration and Steampunk interior and object design.

    1) Steampunk Form & Function Design Competition at The Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation in Waltham MA
    Submit Entry by Sept 5, 2010. Artwork needed by Oct 1, 2010
    2) Nemo’s Steampunk Art & Invention Gallery at Patriot Place’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Entertainment Exhibit in Foxboro MA

    I would need:

    1) Venue participating

    3) Dimensions/size
    4) Cost (consignment will be 60% to the artist, 30% to Steampuffin and 10% donated to The Charles River Museum)

    As an added bonus for the artists – I’ve been recently approached by a book publisher for Melanie and I to author an ‘inspirational’ book on Steampunk Design and Innovations. All the artwork in our venues will be photographed and will appear in the book to be published the Summer of 2011.

    Please respond by end of July if possible so I can plan the space and approve your artwork for exhibiting within the venues.
