Disney prepares retractable lightsaber for Star Wars fans
The lightsaber is known to us from the Star Wars universe. There are various toys on sale that imitate such weapons. However, they are far from what we know from Star Wars. Meanwhile, Disney is working on a lightsaber that has a retractable blade. The hem of the mystery was revealed at a press conference.
This was done by Josh D’Amaro, president of Disney Parks, during a media meeting for the June 4th premiere of the Avengers campus at Disneyland. At the end of the meeting, there was an unexpected presentation of the lightsaber.
This time it was not a sword with a beautiful hilt and a plastic tube that glowed. Disney has developed a solution that allows you to hide the blade and somehow pull it out. Unfortunately, we have no photos to showcase the gadget. The show was closed.
Disney has already filed a patent for a lightsaber in 2018, which has a retractable, motor-driven blade. In addition, the solution involves the use of light and sound effects. At the moment, the device is probably in early stages of development, but it is possible that we will see it soon.
