In this contribution we combine concepts from different fields to show that the stimulated annihilation of positronium could be technologically achievable in the next future, providing a source of gamma rays to to be exploited for a wealth of applications. We analyze the feasibility of such a device by developing a preliminary design of an electron-positron recombination device for the generation of a "gamma ray laser".
