    Hyper- Link Umm... how is light supposed to clash after hitting another beam of light anyway lol, and I don’t think flamethrowers get to be 4000 degrees.

  6. The Noble

    The Noble14 ימים לפני

    John Whitehouse dude, this is made of literal plasma lol. That’s kinda a lot cooler than a retractable blade. A long length plasma cutter is almost the definition of a light saber, and its 4000 degrees. It’s not hacksmith’s fault that Star Wars lets light clash with other light, he’s made it the only possible that it could be made lol.

    Everyone who says this isn’t a real lightsaber needs to shut up. It’ll be a while yet before people can make small energy sources that produce more power than a nuclear plant (as Hacksmith has already stated). Even if humans were capable of making crystals that can consistently produce more power than a nuclear power plant, to use them properly we’d need The Force, and I don’t think an omnipresent psi energy is within humanity’s grasp at this point in time.
