May the force be with you: Company now selling real lightsabers
In a very smart marketing move, a tech company has announced a realish,
working lightsaber, perfect timing, considering this is "Star Wars
The folks at Wicked Lasers have created what they affectionately call
the LaserSaber, which is a pretty obvious homage to the lightsabers made
famous in George Lucas Star Wars films.
So how does it work?
LaserSabers are energized by the light of Wicked Lasers, harnessing the
power of the force. The LaserSaber features an ultra smooth magnetic
gravity system that can "power up" and "power down" the blade. The
LaserSaber maintains its radiant brilliance even when the lights are on.
The LaserSaber is interchangeable, and will attach to any Spyder 3
model. The aircraft grade aluminum hilt ensures secure attachment of the
blade. Due to the extreme powers of the Spyder 3, only operate while
wearing LaserShades in a controlled environment.
The only downsides? Between the laser and the saber mechanism, it'll
cost you a cool $400 to start chopping off hands. Also, if you don't
want to go blind when looking at it, you have to wear the special
glasses, because the thing is so damn bright!!
But the device is absolutely awesome, and the effects look to be about
the closest anyone has ever gotten to making a real lightsaber. Check
out the LaserSaber in action below:
A lightsaber so bright that it blinds you!? So I guess there is no need
to use "the force" on your enemys, just shine the lightsaber in their
eyes and blind them, then kill them when they can't see you!!
