Honoring pop culture’s iconic symbol
Think about this: a Star Wars-inspired pop culture device to be held and ignited in your very own hands. How cool is that?
Not so long time ago (three years to be exact), in a galaxy far, far away, a group of like-minded individuals based in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. Dubbed Expedio Design, the passionate band of rebels have been toiling away to be able to bring the galaxy into the palm of your hand. With over 250 projects under its belt, Expedio Design is ecstatic to present a device inspired by the iconic lightsaber which they aptly call LighterSaber.
Made out of premium zinc alloy and measuring 2.5 cm in diameter and 12.1 cm in length, this customized lighter is wholly inspired by the iconic lightsaber, a pop culture item made famous by the Star Wars movie franchise. Whilst the Jedi’s lightsaber is powered by kyber crystal, the LighterSaber requires only your everyday lithium coin cell batteries. The icing on the cake is the special sound effect of the lightsaber when the flame of the lighter is ignited.
“Our toughest challenge was making the prototype look and feel like a LighterSaber should. It wasn’t easy to create a unique yet practical, everyday product that isn’t only well-designed but extremely easy to use and carry. We hope that other Jedis (and Siths) out there are equally as excited about this product as we are,” said the group’s Lead Engineer.
This is the perfect piece for those who appreciate individuality and quirkiness in all aspects of life; those who have always wanted to hold and feel something intergalactic in the palm of their hands. The distinguishable sound effect is an interesting conversation starter and the perfect tool to scare off uninvited guests from outer space – a dream come true for all Star Wars fans out there!
