IN DIY ON
Star Wars is a cult film series, loved by everyone world-wide. All of us who love the series eagerly wait for the new movies, dress up like the characters in the series, collect items from the movie and definitely have Lightsaber fights with our fellow friends, which are totally cool and badass for us, btw.
But, then, not everyone is rich and can go out to get a lightsaber, so, here's a way you can get it.
This guy used some LED lights and did brilliant stuff to it. And the best part? It's functional.
Read on, you'll definitely want to try.

The major thing you need is LED lights, a lot of them, this guy used 120. These have to be soldered together. This is what makes the blade.
After soldering the lights together, you have to divide it into four sections so that the batteries would not fry them.
By doing this you make sure that there is no "terminal meltdown"
The next thing you need is a chrome steel cylinder which will help you to make your handle.
This guy used polycarbonate to make the blade of the lightsaber. It measured 30mm in diameter and had 2.5mm thickness.
After joining them together, you need to use THIS cap, which has to be placed at the end of the saber. It will house the switch and was 3D printed specifically for this.
After wiring the whole thing together, you are almost done with making your own Lightsaber. Isn't this totally cool?
And, this beautiful item is finally done. It looks real and downright amazing. Take a moment to be proud of yourself for making a functional lightsaber.
