The Force is strong with the LG x Lucasfilm 65-inch Star Wars C2 OLED TV.

James Hobson, better known as The Hacksmith online, has built the world’s first retractable lightsaber. It was modeled after the ones used by Jedi Knights, attached to tanks of liquid propane gas and oxygen gas to create the high level of heat required to make the plasma beam. Once turned on, the beam heats up to an immense 2,204 °C (4,000°F), meaning it can slice through just about anything. The colors of the beam can be manipulated with different kinds of salts infused with the heat.
