We Would Not Want To Be Stormtroopers Right Now
This project looked like a lot of blusters, but it turned out to be pretty intense. The claim was that someone made a retractable plasma lightsaber, and that is mostly true. Instead of a laser-sword, this is more like a pillar of flame that keeps a neat cylinder shape, like the movie version. You can't duel with it because solid matter will pass through the plasma stream, but as a short-range flamethrower, it's wickedly destructive. By a fun happenstance, the creator is a former Hackaday writer.
