Disney has decided to delight all Star Wars fans by finally showing its real retractable Lightsaber. The company had already teased fans with a first teaser during the month of April, but with the new video released by Disney it’s hard not to marvel as a child. In fact, in the video we can see the elegant weapon in all its glory.
As you will see from the video, which you find at the bottom of the article, the yield of the weapon is practically perfect. The way in which the light beam is generated is in fact exactly identical to the real one, and of course we also find the same sounds that we enjoyed in cinema films.
Unlike all the Lightsabers on the market, this version of Disney will not need any backlit plastic. How it works is currently unknown but, according to several enthusiasts, it would be a mechanism similar to that of an extendable meter and equipped with a small motor.
This motor, according to the patent, would extend a plastic tape surrounded by numerous LEDs, in order to replicate the same visual effect of the films.. This lightsaber will be an integral part of the new Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, an interactive hotel where fans can immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe.
At the moment, however, this Lightsaber is anything but definitive. Disney is in fact perfecting it at the laboratori della Walt Disney Imagineering Research and Development. Its price range is not known either but, very likely, it will be a product of at least $ 200, if not even more.
In any case, tell us what you think, dear Gametimers! In the meantime, we refer you to an article published now several months ago where a Youtuber made a real Lightsaber prototype… Capable of cutting iron too!
