A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
3 years to be exact, I awoke to an exciting dream about creating the LighterSaber. The idea of having a replica of one of pop culture’s most iconic gadgets would be a dream come true. Especially if it was in the form of one of life’s most mundane items... a lighter. That’s when the thought came to me. Why not create something that is useful, not only to me, but to millions of people across the galaxy?
With its convenient size and powerful flame, the LighterSaber is an iconic gadget that will get you through the dark and in your times of need. Fueled by butane, the only true hyperdrive fuel available in our galaxy for commercial application, the LighterSaber is the perfect accessory for lighting young Padawan's birthday candles or burning through Trade Federation blast doors.
We started this Kickstarter campaign for those who appreciate individuality and quirkiness in all aspects of life; those that have always wanted to hold and feel something intergalactic in the palm of their hands; those that have always wanted a token from the outer realm in their pocket. The iconic sound effects are a great conversation starter, but they can also be used to scare off uninvited guests from outer space – a dream come true for all the Jedis out there!
This definitely has not been an easy journey. It took me 3 long years to develop the design, the mechanism, how it feels when it’s held, the texture, and not to mention the iconic sound effects that I have envisioned every time the LighterSaber is clicked… Together with the passionate band of rebels from Expedio Design, the creative team that helped make my dream a reality, we would like to present the most iconic pop culture device to be held in your hands... the LighterSaber.
Risks and challenges
For over a year, the toughest challenge we faced was trying to make the prototype look and feel like a LighterSaber. It was not an easy feat, to create an iconic yet practical product that is not only well designed but is also extremely easy to use and fit for the masses.
The long 3 years of hard work eventually paid off once I held the final prototype in my hand. To be able to see everything we wanted combined together into something so iconic that fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. All we need now is the support of those that believe in what we do, those that believe that sometime dreams can come true, and those that believe that the force is with us everywhere we go.
All pledges will help us tell our unique story and bring a new hope to the galaxy, in the form of the LighterSaber…Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
