Disney reveals working lightsaber from Star Wars

In the new teaser for “Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser” from Disney, an amusing and almost mythical thing lit up – a lightsaber, the blade of which retracts into the handle like in the movie – at the press of a button.

Despite the fact that there is no reliable information about the new product (and indeed it cannot be argued whether the sword is real), fans of the Star Wars universe are already making assumptions about the mechanism that extends the blade.

Twitter user @benridout posted a 3D animation of how the mysterious mechanism might work. He also explained how it works:

“The Disney lightsaber reimagines the design of the roulette wheel. Imagine two building tape measures fastened together face-to-face. Secure the ends of the unfolded tape with a round cap.

Next, expand the tape and bend it more so that their edges form a whole cylinder. Add a motor so that the two parts extend at the same time at the push of a button. You now have a lightsaber!”

“Now widen the tapes [tape measures] and increase the bend, allowing them to partially wrap over each other and form a full cylinder. Operate this system with a motor so that both reels can be extended and retracted synchronously at the push of a button.
You now have a lightsaber!”

This lightsaber will even be available for purchase! Visitors to the Disney Galactic Starcruiser, which will open in 2022, will be the first to see it!
