This is a basic proof of concept, version 1, of a new flexible yet rigid retractable lance lightsaber technology. Working on making it more compact, smaller, and adding electric motors to automate the extension and retraction ... More to come ...  See video below

Thanks for the feedback! The blade material is custom engineered/designed.  It's a bi-stable tube.  It's composed of a translucent fiber and polymer laminate based composite material.

Very cool. This is like nanotech stage 1.




I'm afraid the deflector shield with be quite operational when your friends arrive.

Very cool concept (: not sure if the blade can be fully stored inside a hilt, but it certainly can be an innovative way to make the blades more versatile in terms of portability and storage. :exclaim:

Heck, one can - theoretically - even coil up a neopixel stripe wrapped into this blade sleeve and carry it around. I really hope you can send a few out for testing before the year's end!

Any advancements so far? This reminds me of a project the photonic bladesmith worked on a couple years ago on here
