Do not DIY: Real-world lightsaber will burn anything in its path

Dec. 26, 2019

Imagine how much simpler demolition and DIY projects would be if you had a force-guided lightsaber.

The internet can’t seem to stop talking about “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” How did Emperor Palpatine survive the Death Star explosion in “Return of the Jedi?” How did Rey become such a powerful Jedi with so little training? Where was Baby Yoda? This frenzy has even permeated the Plant Services office. Our own Thomas Wilk spent 24 hours in a theater watching all nine movies back to back (*cough* nerd *cough*). Amid all this excitement, only one question remains. Where is my real-world lightsaber? Imagine how much simpler demolition and DIY projects would be if you had a force-guided lightsaber. In a recent video, Youtuber the Hacksmith demonstrates how to build your own working lightsaber. Please, don’t try this at home.
