With dreams of owning a real lightsaber of your own, a crazy laser enthusiast has actually built his own Jedi weapon capable of burning straight through things. Extreme hazard labels needed!
Bradley Lewis, a video game developer and industrious fan of classic science fiction, has put together a brilliant recreation of Luke Skywalker's lightsaber from A New Hope. The lightsaber was built for Celebration V: a massive Star Wars convention in Orlando. Mr. Lewis managed to get the lightsaber done in time for the show, where he was lucky enough to get Mark Hamill to autograph it.
Ever thought of building a hexapodal robot out of cardboard, including servos and controllers for $85 (about £55)? This is a thought process that creator Mike Estee had, and we've got to admit, the DIY, homebrew look of it all (not intentional as it is actually homemade) is awesome.
