Someone on reddit theorized it was made from spooled LED strips like a tape measurer, surrounded by an extensible film sheath
It definitely is for show. It works on the same principle as a tape measure. Sure is neat, but not durable for fighting.The patent is pretty neat: https://www.theverge.com/2021/4/13/22380919/disney-real-lightsaber-patent-star-wars-ben-ridout
I'm curious about how durable it is. My bet is they only use them for shows and what-not for at least a little while.
It's a complete cylinder, though. Imagine two tape measures back to back, so they make a completely round shape. I'm guessing that the two halves interlock for strength. A saber, even for show, that the actors cannot swing seems not quite magical enough for Disney.Which makes me wonder if it will appear 2-dimensional in person.
