And today’s mash-up of fantasy and sci-fi comes to us courtesy of Vader’s Vault, an outfit that specialises in crafting custom lightsabres. Rather than get the usual blade, one client requested something special — a Lord of the Rings-themed weapon.
In the world of Star Wars make-believe you usually have two choices: you can go with a realistic plastic glowing lightsabre, and never actually make contact with your opponent, or opt for safer foam, and battle it out without the glow. A new Kickstarter, however, promises the the best of both worlds.
If you had to pinpoint one common feature of all the backup batteries on the market, it would probably be their uninspired brick-like form factor. There are exceptions, though, but none as elegant and civilised as Brando’s new lightsabre-themed portable backup battery.
A Jedi’s hooded cloak is a great way to keep the sun out of their eyes. But, on scorching hot days, especially on planets like Tatooine with two suns, it has to be unbearable under there. Until now, the only real solution was to build a moon-sized space station to simply blow up a glaring sun, but now there are these glowing lightsabre sunglasses as a cheaper alternative.
OK, so this should be labelled with extreme hazard warnings or something. A crazy laser enthusiast actually built his own lightsabre capable of burning straight through things.
Imagine a world where lightsabres are real. Totally awesome, yeah? All fun and games, right? But not really when a baby gets his hands on a lightsabre. When they start waving things around, you’re at their mercy. Fingers, homes, human bodies and anything else are just in the way.
