Ultimate LED Lightsaber- concept


Well-Known Member
Few months ago I came up with the idea (or at least I haven't heard anyone did this before) for the very bright LED lightsaber prop. I was thinking how to make the brightest lightsaber possible, and I know that there are some pretty good solutions, for example the LED chain. I was thinking in that direction but I wanted to take it up to the next level.

The concept 3D model you see here is VERY basic, connections in real life would be different ofc, but I think you'll see where I'm going with this.

1. Connect 3 LEDs (5mm) in a serial circuit. This will be a "cell" of a lightsaber blade. Make a lot of them.

2. Add one cell on the top of another and rotate it, so that the tips of LEDs cover the top of the empty space of the LEDs underneath. Connect the cells in a parallel circuit.

3. Do this until you reach the desired length of your lightsaber blade.

4. You know the rest: put it in a tube, connect it to the power supply, etc.

What do you guys think? Is it possible? :)
Makoto/Makototsai/Makoto tsai makes the brightest LED string sabers. I think the v3+/v3 plus is supposed to be the brightest of all his versions and I believe it has three full length LED stings in the blade. We're talking super bright here. His LED string blades use the normal ladder configuration for how they are attached to each other. Here's a link to his youtube videos... https://www.youtube.com/user/makototsai/videos
