Disclaimer: Trademark Lightsaber(™) versus Calimacil Foam LED Saber
We understand the concern of some backers with the potential trademark issues with the term "Lightsaber(™)". Calimacil is not associated with Lucasfilm LTD, Disney or any LFL ltd. film or franchise.
Simulated sword fighting is the core of our soul at Calimacil. In the last decade, we have created the most advanced foam gear in the world for live action role play (LARP).
From that experience, we decided to push the limits of design by creating a new type of sword: the LED Saber.
The challenge was to build a saber made of foam for safe play. To integrate light, we had to enhance the foam formula we normally use to build our products. Moreover, we had to develop a new technology into the handle to enable both light and sound. Thus our journey began, and we successfully achieved the creation of a fully immersive foam LED Saber!
This LED Saber is made of our special foam and is completely safe for dueling. We integrated advanced technology to enable the possibility to change light effects, sounds, and more.
Using our unique foam recipe and our knowledge in electronics, we created a perfectly safe saber. Now you can duel with your friends without harm done.
The main feature of all of our products: a practically indestructible foam. You can hit, slash or smash anything and it will never fail you.
We've been working hard these past ten years to perfect the casting process of very realistic molds using fine materials and professional paint. We guarantee the effect is completely stunning. But even more, the lighting technology we use creates an effect that immerses you. You will have the feeling of holding the light!
The LED Saber can communicate with a smartphone through Bluetooth. With that communication enabled, you will be able to customize the light effects of the blade. Multiple choices of colors are available: red, blue, green, orange and more. Even more, you can create various visual plasma effects on the blade.
Immersive Sound Effects
The Master version of our LED Saber completes the immersion with a precise movement detection, which is used to adjust the sound effects. We built algorithms that can detect and discern between hits and swings, and even lock in position. This means if you swing the LED Saber, it will never create the "hit" sound until you really hit a physical object. Even more, if you stay still on a physical object, the sound effect will blaze like an electroshock.
What do you get by pledging?
Here is the list of options and rewards you will get. Most rewards are composed of a complete LED Saber, made with one of our three handles and two blades.
The basic version of the LED Saber includes an external battery charger. With the advanced and master LED Saber, you will be able to charge the LED Saber directly with USB. Finally the Master handle has an integrated belt clip for easy transportation.

This handle is an exclusive handle design for Kickstarter. You can choose between three types of handle (Basic, Advanced & Master). Here are their different features:
This Basic handle is built with simple electronics. A simple on/off switch lights up mono-colored blades. The battery charger is external.
This Advanced handle is built with more complex electronics. Both mono-colored and RGB blades can be used. In addition, a Bluetooth connection makes it possible to use the new Calimacil Mobile app to control colors, patterns and intensity of the blade.

Risks and challenges
