Laser Saber

 

cutaway view diagramvery bright table light dremeled topI was experimenting with some old lasers and found that the way lasers shine through clear polycarbonate is simply incredible. It’s extremely bright and reminds me so much of a lightsaber. I designed a handle in Solidworks that accommodates common batteries and lab laser modules that are available on ebay from China. I found it much cheaper to just buy a very powerful laser pointer from China so I used this instead and found some special square swirled acrylic “rod” to use as the blade. I bought hundred of dollars in neodymium magnets that I still have to glue to the ends of the acrylic and laser to attach the two in a flexible type of joint so you can battle with friends. This project is still in it’s infancy but more pictures will come!
