So, all of those dreams we've had since childhood might not come true in the end. We may never get hoverboards, or jetpacks, or our very own Ewok.
But we might still get lightsabers.
I mean, sure, lasers don't really work that way - and if they did, we'd definitely accidentally cut off our own head swinging the damn thing - but that's not the sort of attitude that gets outrageously awesome technological solutions done.
Yup, the awesomeness-dedicated team at Man at Arms: Reforged have done it again.
And this time, it's a freakin' Lighsaber Katana:
Which is just...beautiful.
Not especially practical, but...beautiful.
Just look at it...
No, seriously, J.J. Abrams - look at it. That's a perfect summary of what made Star Wars so awesome in the first place. Pure, distilled, childhood fantasy.
Give Episode VII a solid dose of that, and then:
[Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) is set for release December 18, 2015. Hopefully with more lightsabers in it than you can shake a katana at.
What do you guys reckon? Lightsaber Katana awesome enough for you?
