Light Saber

  1. Aug 27, 2015 #1
    Just a thought on how a light saber could work. Take a bundle of miniature plasma guns and pair them with plasma magnets, so when a PG fires the beam goes out and is drawn back by the PM and routed back into the PG, where the beam receives a power boost to make up for what the beam lost and fired again forming a continuous loop. The length of the saber is controlled by the strength of the PM. The Light side of the Force uses positive charged plasma while the Dark side uses negative charged plasma, hence the color difference.
