It Killed Obi-Wan, After All

Upside: It’s a working lightsaber.

Downside: It can really hurt you . . . specifically it can can burn retinas and set skin on fire.



  1. So there’s no dif between a laser and a lightsaber?

    I figure a lightsaber has a limited extent and glows without requiring particles in the air to reflect it.

    EM contained plasma, maybe? Or more likely, actual matter extends and emits a unipolar mag field and a buffer of plasma, which might also prevent 2 of them from passing through each other.

    Upside: calling it a lightsaber excites would-be Jedis to play with it.

    Downside: see Upside.

  3. Going as Vader for Halloween, Howie? 🙂

    Careful you don’t shoot your eye out, kid. Or lose a hand.
