Wicked Laser Spyder III is NOT a Star Wars Lightsaber!!

Hahaha!

Wicked Laser’s awesome blue Spyder III laser that I posted just the other day is getting all sorts of media attention now, because, apparently, Lucasfilms has demanded they stop production due to intellectual property reasons.

Personally, I think this is silly. Wicked Lasers never refers to their laser as a lightsaber in any of their media. Sure, it looks vaguely like a lightsaber, but so does every county fair plastic toy for kids. Heck, so does a christmas paper roll, if you’re young and creative enough.

Granted, I’m sure the media has made references to lightsabers. Heck, even I have. Not because I think Wicked is trying to make a lightsaber, but because I happen to think that both lightsabers and lasers are way cool.

Anyway, luckily, Wicked Lasers is refusing, because Lucas has no grounds. But, hopefully, he won’t be able to gain ground, otherwise these awesome blue lasers may not be available for long.

Here’s an awesome video from Youtube showing the Arctic Spyder III laser:

Next Best Thing to a Star Wars Lightsaber

Wow!

Obviously, I’m a fan of Star Wars Lightsabers. But, what fan of lightsabers doesn’t like lasers in general? They are just plain cool.

I picked up a green laser pointer a long time ago, when they were fresh off the development cycle. And, although I rarely use it, except for the cool factor, it’s still one of my favorite possessions.

Until now.
Wicked Lasers Arctic S3

Wicked Lasers has completely outdone themselves. Not only is this new laser “pointer” Star Wars Lightsaber-looking, it is also the most powerful and dangerous consumer laser in the world. It burns through stuff. It can blind you instantly. In other words, it’s freaking awesome!

Check out the Arctic Spyder S3 blue laser pointer from Wicked Lasers!

Star Wars Lightsaber Laser Pointer

As if I didn’t already love Thinkgeek for their great prices and selections on Force FX Lightsabers, I now love them even more for their awesome laser pointers.

They’ve had the standard laser pointers for a while, seeing as how geeks love lasery thingies. But, the plain jane red laser pointer has been around for so long, and is so cheap, that it’s really passe.

That is, until you make it look like a Star Wars Lightsaber!
