How Lightsabers Work

Today, I was pointed to a good article on How Stuff Works [.com]. You’ll be amazed at the technical depth to which this article reaches. It just goes to show you the ernest efforts put forth by fans of Sci-Fi. Do not underestimate the loafer.

“There are two ends to any lightsaber — one end has the belt ring, while the other end houses the blade arc tip and blade emitter. NEVER point the blade emitter of a lightsaber toward your own body. NEVER look down the ‘barrel’ of a lightsaber, even if you are ‘sure’ it is in safe mode. If you accidentally activate the lightsaber, serious injury could result.”


  1. first of all, i’m impressed. second, killer pics. third, i read the thing about the lightsaber and thought “whoa! other people are finding this too!!” .. then i remembered that it was actually I who blah blah.. silly me huh?

  2. Loafer? LOAFER!?

    Science fiction fans are the workaholics of the new economy. They find ways to make this ludicrous stuff work, at least within said device’s perspective fantasy world. Sure, you can write SQL in your sleep, but can you realign dilithium crystals? Huh, huh? Can ya?

    Just kidding. Thanks for the heads up on the article. I have a writing buddy who is going to LOVE this.
