After the long wait since it was first previewed last summer, Cerevo’s “smart toy” replica of the Psycho-Pass law-enforcing firearm is now on sale, and internationally too. You can pre-order it at the official Cerevo Store, featuring smartphone connectivity and 100 sound clips from the anime’s voice of the Dominator, Noriko Hidaka, at $799 for the standard edition and $899 for the special edition. The latter has a natural polished rosewood grip, with the aluminium Public Safety Bureau mark above it decorated with a synthetic ruby. The standard grip is instead made from ABS polymer with a wood effect finish.

Cerevo describe their Dominator:
This product has been created under the supervision of Production I.G director Naoyoshi Shiotani and Nitroplus designer Makoto Ishiwata. DOMINATOR features characteristics identical to the devices seen in PSYCHO-PASS such as automatic transformation, voiceover and sound effects, authentic LED lighting, touch sensor activation, Crime Coefficient analysis and more.
Automatic Transformation Between Paralyzer and Eliminator Mode
Using geared motors provided by Nidec Corporation, DOMINATOR can automatically transform between Paralyzer and Eliminator modes according to a target’s Crime Coefficient score. DOMINATOR is the world’s first smart toy to commercialize an electrically‐powered deformation mechanism.
Crime Coefficient Analysis
When DOMINATOR is aimed at a target, it will automatically analyze and readout the target’s Crime Coefficient score. Connecting a smartphone will allow DOMINATOR to capture and stream an image from its built-in camera to the companion smartphone app and overlay Crime Coefficient data on the target image.
Official Voiceover by Noriko Hidaka
DOMINATOR features over 100 different voice samples from Noriko Hidaka who provides the Dominator voiceover for PSYCHO-PASS. DOMINATOR can automatically playback voiceovers depending on the situation, such as grasping the grip, detecting an authorized person and more. DOMINATOR has a built in speaker for voiceover and sound effects and can also playback sound via a connected smartphone’s speakers.
Grip Touch Sensor and over 200 LEDs
DOMINATOR has a touch sensor built into the left and right hand sides of grip, enabling detection when held in either hand. Just like in PSYCHO-PASS you can register your DOMINATOR to activate when holding the grip or lock out unauthorised users. DOMINATOR’s body has a total of 217 full color, high brightness LEDs, the LEDs have authentic lighting patterns to replicate Paralyzer, Eliminator or charging modes.
