Electrified Light Saber Helps You Slay Bugs Like a Jedi [Video]

This fun little DIY project combines a toy light saber with the guts of an electrified fly-swatter to yield a bug slaying sword perfect for your epic battles against the Empire’s tiniest soldiers.

Courtesy of Caleb over at Hack A Day, the build is surprisingly simple and quick to put together (if you’re handy with a screw driver and soldering iron). Check out the video above to see the build and the results or hit up the link below to read more about it.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    meh. Its neat but it would have been better if he fit the electronics into the hilt of the saber and some how made the saber itself the zapper instead of tonz of mesh and electrical tape. Still neat though.
