    Check out this other cool Off Topic news story! (Sorry... it's a slow Android news day.)

    Do you folks remember the video we shared of the engineer who built his own version of Thor's Hammer, Mjolnir? He craftily figured out a way to make it seem like only he could lift it (under specific circumstances). You can check out that video here: Clever Engineer Creates His Own Version 'Mjolnir' that Only He Can Lift | Android Forum at DroidForums.net

    Well... he's back again, but this time he made his own lightsaber! This one isn't strictly a plasma sword like you would see in the Star Wars movies, but its hilt does look just like a traditional Jedi Weapon, and it does have a glowing blue blade that burns things. It's actually a glorified butane torch, but it makes a decent (if dangerous) impersonation of an actual lightsaber. Enjoy the video shown above!

    Will someone ever be able to create a real life lightsaber? Possibly/probably, but the better question is... should they?

    I might attempt to build one. That's what my dad and I do. We do all kind of things like that.
