    that's easy, just get a hold of some diatium


    You can order it online here

    Once you get a hold of some, PM me and we can start work on it right away

    You know, I always saw the basic problem as being that the blade would just be a laser beam, instead of a blade, but now I'm starting to wonder if there might be a way to have bunch of beams, set up in such a way so that they only constructively interfere with each other over a distance of a few feet.

    No idea how to do it, though. If I'm ever bored long enough, I might try to research into it.

    could you use ionic particles?

    shooting two streams of ions, one stream negative, the other positive, close enough to each other and with enough velocity that they spiral forward and eventually meet, becoming two stable isotopes.

    would this do anything like a light saber? is it feasible

    I have found a naturally occuring substance which is crucial to the creation of a lightsaber:

    I saw the T.H.E.L. tecnology , but the problem is stop the light energy afther 0.80\1 meter


    i think that we cacture a very high energy in a elettromagnetic wall outside the light saber ,it is plausible you know ?


    but the battery must be small about 3cm x 5cm for stay in a light saber...

    I remember reading something a while ago about theoretically using a plasma somehow to create a finite length blade. Don't remember the specifics though.

    Well, one of you have a go making a light saber, and I challenge you to a duel against me with my swiss army knife.

    High energy hologram interference technology or HEHIT (pronounced heat).


    Just made that up.

    "Just made that up."

    Well, it makes some sense. kind of like a fresnel lense. But that isn't technically a hologram it is very similar in design as well as effect

    multiple reflections of infrared light on one focus point multiplies heat...

    the problem is the size of the fresnel lense, and creating the infrared light in the first place to reflect

    there is a foundry somewhere used by the US military. It uses solar power reflected to produce 6,000 degrees F. Plenty hot enough. but this is a building, not very portable, never mind wieldable.

    Unless your a Gundam.

    Why bother using a lightsaber? If it was feasable it would not be relliable. If it ever broke down, it would not be easy to repair. Why not just use a modified cattle prod?

    Plasma blade (not for the squeemish).

    If you took that technology and made it bigger, you'd have something that looked like a squashed billy club, and capable of slicing through tissue quite easily.

    In case it isn't obvious, a light saber ala Star Wars is not possible with current technology. And it might not be possible with future technology. If it is possible, it would involve some clever tricks that aren't immediately clear.
