A Russian YouTuber has been recognized by Guinness World Records as the inventor of the world’s first retractable lightsaber.
Listen to our Big Dave Show Podcast for all the fun:
Alex Burkan, who runs the Alex Lab channel on YouTube, unveiled his Star Wars-inspired invention, which produces a plasma blade that measures more than 3 feet in length And hot enough to cut through steel.
It does have a few limitations. It works for only 30 seconds on full power, the hydrogen torch is not as stable as it could be and you can easily see it when it moves. Sometimes the lightsaber just blows up in your hand because of hydrogen flashback.
Otherwise the force is all yours!
