Physicists have created a new form of matter which behaves somewhat like a lightsaber.
Just in time for Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be With You), the world has now been offered the first real lightsaber, courtesy of Wicked Lasers.
The Jedibot is a mechanized arm with a foam lightsaber at the end of it. What’s cool is that it has several different articulated attack motions and when it detects contact with your foam lightsaber, it’ll recoil and prepare for the next attack. They say that it can unleash an attack every 2-3 seconds.
