is a real thing. It's taken them 35 years; they've finally done it. They made a lightsaber. Even though it's simply a 1W laser with a casing attached to the hilt, it's still a fairly impressive technological advancement. With this kind of technology a vast amount of good can be accomplished, but also evil.
So this leaves only one question that is on all of our minds, is the Sith and Jedi war soon to come?
Er, I'm sorry to burst your bubble Boton, but these are neither new nor lightsabers.
It isn't a lightsaber. Its just a laser in a plastic tube. We've had these for literally decades.
Moreover, the commercial is, I'm afraid, pure bullshit. What's the most powerful laser you can own? Answer: you can own any power of laser legally! There are no legal restrictions on lasers (well, not special ones anyway). You could theoretically build a laser strong enough to write your name on the moon and not have any legal problems.
