Galaxys edge string blade
« on: August 02, 2019, 02:52:04 AM »
Hi everyone. I was watching this youtube video explaining how to swap the disney blade for a thicker one and i saw the string of leds inside the blade. Does anyone know what the name for these leds are? If you can buy them in a string like this and if you can get them in rgb form?

I'd call this a "plastic ladder" or a "framed ladder" style LED blade.  I remember back in 2015ish, there was someone producing these for hobbyists, but I don't know if they're still active.  It's definitely not a common thing like neopixel strips.  I think these are used in the licensed lightsabers, but they're specific to them, and not an off the shelf product.

I'm pretty sure it's just used for mass production.  "String blades" are very much a thing, and there are a number of ways people have made them, including RGB blades.
