I'm curious to see if there is a way. My favorite part of writing fantasy and sci fi is that I don't have to explain anything.


well my biggest pet peeve has always been the laser guns and lightsabers, as cool as they are, I don't think it's possible to make them like that.
on the bright side, if you want a lightsaber, make a sword out of tungsten (a metal who's melting point is 6192 degrees F) that heats itself up to like a thousand degrees, now that will cut.


If you really want a lightsaber that would work, it's not a laser or energy sword. According to one video I watched, you would need a superheated noble gas like Argon surrounded by a magnetic field to prevent it from escaping. That swoosh noise you hear might be the vacuum that sucks the gas back inside the handle!
