Unfortunately, the participants were not allowed to take photos or videos, so that there are no images of the hyper-realistic saber. But that was learned after the presentation Disney filed a patent in 2017 for one for one “Internally illuminated sword with retractable blade”whose description and characteristics match those of D’Amaro.
The virtual reality developer Ben Ridout was given the task of analyzing the patent and explained in Twitter how the saber works.
Ridout stated that the mechanism was similar to that of a retractable tape measure. The saber blade would consist of two spools of translucent material that lay flat when rolled. In operation, however, these strips are projected and curved to become a type of tube that projects light.
“The cap on the end of the blade holds the curved profiles up, while a guide on the handle maintains the curved profile as each ribbon exits from it.”explained the specialist in virtual reality.
Has #Disney invented a real job #Lightsaber?
Yes they did.
It won’t melt through metal doors or cut off your hand, but it does have a lighted blade that extends and retracts with the push of a button.
