I am working on another star wars project but i need to know how a repulsorlift works ... any ideas?
Pretty much the same way most sci-fic "technology" works ... magic.
( I wish) but sadly magic won't work here. I am attempting to creat a ( working) model of a Podracer.
There are no actual physics you can use, that we know of today so magic is about all you are left with. I seriously doubt we ever will know of any that would do that stuff --- it's anti-gravity pure and simple.
Just do some hand waving and say that anti gravity has been discovered. It's the story that's important. You can't do "hard" sci-fic with anti-gravity since it does not appear to be even an extrapolation from known technology.
Make it up, works for a lot of authors. Use "elastic magnetic field repulsion", no charge.
Star Wars is very much Soft-SF, but even in Hard-SF a lot of the time you just have to make up how things work. But that doesn't matter, it's not the important bit by far. the important thing is that when you make something up figure out its capabilities and its limits. Even if you don't explicitly write it into your story or setting for good worldbuilding you need to have consistency.
I forget where I read it, but one author said "It's not making stuff up, it's predicting future technology." I guess that worked for him, and the readers don't seem to mind much.
An Idea I use is the interfacing and interaction of multiple universes for advanced technology. The hyper drive magically (and you are stuck with magically) creates or opens an area of another universe within its components. That universe has different physical laws from this one. Antigravity repulsion and FTL are the product of that universe and this universe interacting.
Sorry. As explained, it's fictional, as is the technology behind it.
I loved that Sibulba's podracer sounded like a Buzz Bomb. (Vergeltungswaffe 1, or V-1 Vengence Weapon from WWII.)
Did you notice they used the same sound effect for Wonder Woman's powers in Batman V Superman?
It's on cable already?
Oh no, I do the DVD.
It works by bouncing microscopic transparent basketballs between the floating object and the ground.
And when you're considering technology, you need to have some idea how engineers think, and not go with stuff, just because it's cool.
Ahem. We are talking Star Trek here.
No we aren't.
From this distance...
Star Wars, Star Trek. It's like confusing quantum physics with Einstein.
More like saying that apples and oranges are the same thing because they are both fruits.
I saw the original Star Trek and the original Star Wars. Burn me at the stake for heresy, but they're both mediocre.

Does anyone have lighter fluid?
I think you will find this handy.
How'd you do that?
