    George Lucas was an oracle of the future.

    I'd like to think a lot of things from Star Wars will become a reality..we've really cycled through a lot of things on this Earth, except maybe the ocean floors, and really the only place to go is up!
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    That looks dangerous. o.O I'd keep away from that thing.


    Still, it's amazing what technology can do.

    these wont be the same thing - a laser needs to be capped off or else the beam extends into space indefinitely, its their awesome property that allows them to be focused as such. These things would be torches/columns of actual light, not sabers in the sense people will expect it

    Yea, if you can dream it, you can build it

    I do think tho that article is a bit more of a fake, I cant imagine a powercell able at the moment to generate enough power to turn molecules into a plasma and still come at a handy size

    It looks like the lasers are actually to heat up the air and the actual blade is the resulting plasma. That doesn't need to be capped, but the plasma will need a proper magnetic field for containment if you want to use it for a lightsaber.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    That makes sense. You could even manage to build that one with a lower need for energy. Only problem is tho, if the magnetic field holds, if you want to cut through steel for example. Whats funny tho will be when you switch the magnetic field of and the plasma dissipates. Then you better wear a uniform like Darth Vader
