The blade can even cut through steel, according to Guinness.

All my life I was a great ‘Star Wars’ fan and the lightsaber was my most-wanted gadget,” Burkan said in a video.

He told Guinness that he’s mainly been researching and working with hydrogen generation equipment since 2013, which inspired him to try to make his own lightsaber. tuttavia, the process was apparently not easy.

Every single step during [il] development and building process was a challenge,” Burkan said.

He told Guinness that he’s spent years collecting ideas and spare parts for the lightsaber from the internet and scrapyards.

Burkan’s first lightsaber only lasts 30 seconds on full power, but it’s still a powerful tool.

Plasma is a stream of high ironized particles so this lightsaber can also attract lightning and other high voltage charges,” Alex said. “The most awesome thing this gadget can do is give you a true feeling of a real lightsaber in your hand.

He said he plans to continue to improve the lightsaber and its design.

This is a first prototype so it has lots of limitations,” Egli ha detto. “It works for only 30 seconds on full power, the hydrogen torch is not as stable as it could be and you can easily see it when it moves. Sometimes the lightsaber just blows up in your hand because of hydrogen flashback.
