This genius has made “the closest thing on the planet to a real lightsaber”

It's the dream of every Star Wars fan


Forget hover boards, all every nerd dreams of owning is their own lightsaber. Just think of its many uses, in lumberjacking and more!


Now Allen Pan of Sufficiently Advanced has made a flame-throwing lightsaber which is as close as we’ll ever get to the real thing.

One problem: it runs on alcohol, which isn’t just a path to the dark side, it’s downright irresponsible. Just look at these guys swinging it at each other. It’s like Fresher’s Week on Dagobah.

Here’s an in-depth guide to how it’s made, but if you do decide to create your own, please be careful.


Pan previously made that incredible working Thor’s hammer. With that and this lightsaber under his belt, he is officially 8000% better than Santa Claus.
