The real-life lightsaber

Who in the world doesn't want a lightsaber? No really, we want names.

If such a list even exists then we would imagine that it's pretty short and full of confused, strange people. Ignoring those lost souls the rest of the normal world can simultaneously rejoice at the invention of the LaserSaber.

The unofficial gadget is actually a 32-inch polycarbonate that attaches onto the Spyder 3, a device that emits lasers. Despite a failed lawsuit from George Lucas, the team have soldiered on and the latest development allows the slightly more extravagant of Star Wars fan to wield their very own faux-lightsaber.

It all comes from the same company who were behind the frankly genius plan to attach lasers to sharks in recent weeks. If you need any more proof to invest in this company then you're incredibly hard to please.

You can see how it all works in the video below or get your own right here. All in all, it'll set you back around $400 (£247).

Do you think it's worth it? You do, right? Right?
