A Real Star Wars Light Saber – That Should Work – In Theory…

Ok All you Star Wars Enthusiasts, I like many after watching Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back had an overwhelming urge and completely awesome inspirational moment …. Dude…. I’M GOING TO MAKE A LIGHT SABER… Which of course shortly there after, I jumped on Google and found a massive amount of Theoretical Particle Physicists , talking about the basic qualities of light and energy.  Which quickly made me realize that making one of these things wasn’t going to be easy.

But then I thought, well obviously some of the technology isn’t available yet but building a less powerful light saber shouldn’t be to hard… and when the technology becomes available like a civilian laser strong enough to cut through most objects can be acquired… with this design you’d simply swop out the better laser.

Basic idea is your trapping light between two mirrors, until you cut off the laser.  Obviously the Laser in the future would be more powerful… Obviously the motorized extender would be faster… but all-in-all from a functional prototype perspective…. DUDE IT’S A LIGHT SABER…
