This engineer has finally created a real burning lightsaber
Remember electrical engineer Allen Pan from Sufficiently Advanced? We showed you a few months ago the incredible Thor Hammer he made that only he could lift off the ground. Well, he’s back to bewilder us again, this time inspired by Star Wars. He created a real, working lightsaber, and of course, he shows us how.
We do see a lot of replicas around, but lightsabers still remain a very iconic weapon without any functionality when recreated. And this is due to very basic physics: light can’t interact with matter that way, light beams cannot be interrupted without having its course cut off – which means we can’t recreate in real life we see in those awesome fights in Star Wars.
