What would you like to do?
How could you create a lightsaber like the ones in Star Wars?
Answer: It hasn't been done...yet. But in the sci-fi terms that define what a lightsaber is constructed of, it wouldn't work. But even George Lucas himself admitted that he was simply creating fiction and didn't know anything about how it would work. He just called it a lightsaber because...well...it emits light. When you go home and say "turn on the light, would ya?" are you referring to a nonstop beam of light? No, you're visually describing an incandescent bulb operated by electricity, which of course emits light. Same thing applies to a lightsaber - it emits light, but that doesn't mean it is made of light. When little Anakin told Qui Gon that he saw his laser sword, are you going to accept that as fact? Anakin was a kid when he said that, and had no knowledge of how a lightsaber was constructed, nor physics for that matter. You're gonna go off the word of a KID? If you want to build a lightsaber, you have no choice but to go with existing technology, and if it doesn't exist, well then - invent it. A plasma saber can be called a lightsaber because it would emit light. Plasma is possible here people. It occurs naturally everyday. Physicists always yammer about how you can't generate enough power to inject a plasma into a magnetic field, which bugs me because they're always talking about plasma and magnetic fields as if one has absolutely nothing to do with the other - like they should be regarded as two separate and unlinked entities. Let's talk electricity. A flow of charge generates an electromagnetic field, and vice-versa an EM field will generate a flow of charge. Now let's talk about conductivity. Your best conductors are silver and copper. These are good conductors. Some materials oppose a flow of charge - these are known as nonconductors. But, as fate would have it, nonconductors will conduct just fine if they become ionized. For example, a simple capacitor utilizes this concept. A charge builds up one one end of the capacitor, seeking to dump to the other end to complete its circuit. To accomplish this task, a nonconductor is sandwiched in between. And that's when something amazing happens. When enough charge builds up, the nonconductor becomes ionized and the capacitor is able to make its charge dump. When this occurs, the nonconductive material returns to its nonconductive state and the process starts all over again. Of course, you're thinking, how does this answer my question? We live on a giant capacitor. The clouds in the sky will gradually build up a static charge. And naturally, when enough charge builds up, you get lightning. Air is a nonconductive material until it becomes ionized. And when a material becomes ionized, this means that each atom has enough energy to excite its electrons to another level until one gets bumped off. What results is a flow of charge, a flow of electrons, charge in motion - a current, pushed by a massive voltage. This of course leads me right into plasma. What IS plasma? Plasma is simply an ionized gas. It doesn't matter what type of gas it is, as long as it IS a gas. Air is a gas, and when it becomes ionized, it is converted to plasma - this is what we call lightning. And, of course, I'll say it again - any charge in motion generates an EM field, and therefore plasmas generate their own EM fields. This is all I will say for now - that lightning (electron arcing) is the simplest way to create a plasma saber. Of course, lightning zigzags, because it follows a nonlinear path of the least resistive molecules in the air. If you use a laser in tandem to heat the molecules, this will provide a linear path of least resistance. And PLEASE remember that like polarities will always repel. If you keep it simple, simple solutions will always present themselves. This is all I will write, for if I give any more information, it simply would be no fun for you. But if you understood what I wrote and what it implies, I'm sure you can figure out the rest. The answer is YES. It is definitely possible, and it is even easy if you have the proper resources and knowledge. This answer brought to you by http://boardster.net/Lightsmith

Thanks for the feedback!
When Samuel L. Jackson was in negotiation with George Lucas to do the Star Wars prequels, he asked for a purple light saber. No other significance.
You beat the game Its some sort of hack
I've never seen Star Wars 4 but I do know that the blue lightsaber Luke was using belonged to Anakin Skywalker, his father. When Darth Vader chopped off Luke's arm in The Empi…re Strikes Back, Star Wars 5, he lost the blue lighsaber. Between Star Wars 5 and Star Wars 6, Return of the Jedi, Luke made a new lightsaber, the green one.
3 places I know are Target, Wal-Mart and Amazon.com (If you want to get a FX lightsaber, I would personally recommend Amazon.com since it's the only place I know to order one)…
There is no actual lightsaber that exists currently in the world. Despite attempts at controlling the paths and movement of laser, it is physically impossible (currently, at… least) to form a non-matter pole-shaped laser beam that protrudes from a small hilt. This is because light travels extremely fast and does not stop. Therefore, a powerful laser beam would be possible, but not a powerful laser sword. It's theorized that the lightsaber is not a laser, but actually plasma contained by a feild of so kind of energy, that seems more likely to eventually be made, but that still would be extremely hard to do.
ok this cheat code is for all the lightsabers DARTHVADER (if did not work im not responsible for this writing) just remember! DARTHVADER and dont forget to brush you teeth!! o…k byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
In his days as a Jedi Knight, Plo Koon was the only member of the Jedi Order to carry an Orange-Colored lightsaber. After he achieved Jedi Master status, however, he traded …it in for a green blade. Yaddle or The One Below, was a female Jedi Master of the same species as Yoda, who served on the Jedi High Council. She also welds an orange lightsaber.
Yes, if you have the correct crystal.
Theoretically they can be of any colour, except black. (there is no such thing as light that his black in colour),but there is a darksaber seen in the clone wars which is blac…k. Most often in the movies they have been red, blue or green. In later movies and video games they have also been in cyan, viridian, violet, silver and orange. Elsewhere they have been yellow, brown and even invisible.
Only Jedi and Sith can use lightsabers.
Plo Koon has a yellow lightsaber (The guy from ROTS That was in his Jedi fighter when he got shot down by a clone pilot bhind him. The funny thing is that in The Clone Wars, h…e has a green lightsaber. He must have lost it and replaced it with a yellow one). ---- Edit: In The Clone Wars, season 3 has Ashoka Tano two lightsabers, green one and yellow one (yellow in right hand)
Mace Windu. He was played by Samuel L. Jackson. And in the graphic novels, a female Jedi Master named An'ya Kuro (but calls herself "Dark Woman") is the only one with a purple… lightsaber besides Windu
In Video Games
Its just an Easter egg. You can't use it, but it can be found on one of the Assault Ship levels
Not presently, however, the Berkly institute has developed a plasma arc device that looks, sounds, and behaves like a light saber, but it takes an enormous amount of power to …sustain and a lot of equipment to produce. It's not exactly hand-held yet.
Well, I know in the original Star Wars Ben Kenobi and Luke Skywalker have blue lightsabers. In the new Star Wars I only know that Obi-wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker have blue… lightsabers. Hope this helps!
Umm, not sure what you're asking. But a Lightsaber is a laser sword, more accurate than a blaster, and less clumsy as well. It's a weapon used by the Jedi and the Sith. It… comes in blue, red, green, and purple. If you want to buy one, try Amazon or Walmart. (They aren't real, they're plastic.)
By hitting a metal slinky with a pen/pencil. If you have a metal slinky at home, hang it down your stairwell, so its falling to the ground. Then, take a pen or pencil (prefera…bly a pencil - the metal part between the eraser and the actual pencil) and it the slinky lightly. You will hear a faint sound of the lightsaber.
