Me too. Still trying to work on the beam expander.HAHAHA!! I am building this host now! NO JOKE! I am BUILDING it!
Yeah someone already tried and failed. You'll need a mini red diode from a 12X Blu-Ray sled if you want to try too.I was browsing the "Gadgets -> Light & Lasers" section of ThinkGeek today and almost felt like posting a similar thread.
There were at least 3 flashlights in their inventory using the word LightSaber.
"Star Wars Lightsaber Laser Pointer" image:
The one pictured above is only ~3 inches long. Its not the same as the one pictured in the OP.There is someone on another Forum that bought one
of these on eBay... It is just the Housing...no guts..
His housing is about 12 inches long...
He is planning on installing multiple 445nm LDs in it to make a
wide Light Saber type beam...
