Urm, lightsabers are essentially lasers - lasers can cut through all sorts of stuff - ok slightly differently than lightsabers, but essentially the same principle...
AndrewtheActorMan wrote:now here is what you should be asking...
How do lightsabers clash together and push like swords...like in a lock, or something to that effect, instead going through? Light can't be 'touched' so-to-speak. Your hand brightens up and goes through the light..
Remember, that flood light, that light (not the bulb) is not solid, so take your hand and go through the light...does your hand go ZAP! have a large CLASH! and hurt? or does it just say, "hmm...its lighter than it was a second ago?
basicly, this is a bunch of non-since
Yeah, i said that earlier - maybe if they hold a really tiny mirror infront of the beam at the end

Heh, Imagine a fight with endless lightsabers

Bare in mind these projects aren't like the lightsabers we see in star wars - more like advanced lazers!

But project is ready

I wasn't arguing, i was just stating about the heat thing, i know they don't clash etc, i was just saying the part that COULD be true...
AndrewtheActorMan wrote:but lasers dont clash into each other, they pass through each other.
hehehe...does it seem funny that we are all arguing about a fictional object? Thats the funny part...
Stop and think - we are all arguing about a light saber...
(just had to say it)

Have you read all of this topic?
has anyone ever downloaded a film, looked at it, thought .."Well, the FX were great, the choreography was good, the acting wasnt bad.. it had a story... and yet something troubles me... the fact that the sabers had shadows really sucked.. so I will give it a 1 out of 5"
not as far as I am aware..
Putting these facts to one side for a moment
1) A beam of light only a metre long is impossible
2) A Solid beam of light is a physics impossibility
3) If they did exist, a light source (Even plasma source) would cause shadows and not cast them.

That is why they are called LIGHTsabers
