A Real Life Home Made Lightsaber?!

If you’re a Star Wars fan, I’m sure the inner nerd in you has at least once dreamed of wielding a Lightsaber as a Jedi Knight  and doing combat against Sith Lords and the mighty Empire, or even just using The Force to fetch the TV remote from across the room.  But it looks like Lightsabers have come one small step closer to becoming a reality*…

*DISCLAIMER: Not really but hey, this is still awesome!!

YouTube user and laser fanatic styropyro is the mastermind behind this Sci-Fi fan boys dream.  The 3000mW blue laser is contained inside a very Jedi-esque casing which according to the man himself is “the most powerful handheld laser that I’ve ever used!”.

Mr. styropyro also says:

“I usually try to refrain from using the term “lightsaber” when referring to my lasers but there really isn’t much else out there to describe this laser.”

And there really isn’t anything else out there to describe it.

While lasers of this kind are possible to buy and legal to own (in the US anyway), unfortunately I don’t think we’ll be able to recreate Luke Skywalker vs Darth Vader in Return of the Jedi in our own homes just yet.
