The GeekDad Community is full of fun – and of course, geeky – projects that you can do with and/or for your geeklings, covering all levels of budgets and skills. We’ve already seen how to construct a trebuchet and how to make an Arduino Theremin, and now our own James Floyd Kelly had added a great little project that it sure to delight any younglings in your house:
My 5-year-old finally asked me that question that many geek dads so look forward to: “Can I have a lightsaber?”
Now, lightsabers aren’t cheap, and true Jedi Knights make their own. But somehow I just can’t see Master Yoda asking the younglings to whip out the soldering irons. I have a sneaky feeling the younglings get loaner sabers.
Coruscant is (as you may be aware) in a galaxy far far away, and I just can’t pay the shipping fees to have one sent our way.
Head on over to the GeekDad Community to read more about James’ $23 lightsaber and get the parts list for your own version.
