Phillip Isherwood at Adaptive Saber Parts has launched a new Kickstarter campaign this month to enable backers to design and build their own dream Lightsaber, similar to those from the Star Wars movies.
The Adaptive Saber Parts are all highly detailed modular saber parts that let anyone build a beautiful custom saber with electronics. Watch the video below to learn more about the idea that is looking to raise $100,000 via Kickstarter.
“Adaptive Saber Parts are an easy to use modular system that lets anyone construct their very own movie quality custom saber. We have lowered the barrier to entry, now you don’t need expensive machinery, soldering equipment, or years of prop building experience to make your very own custom saber, all you need is your imagination, and Adaptive Saber Parts.
With our initial release we will offer over a hundred unique metal parts in three different finishes putting millions of different design configurations at your fingertips, and every month we will release a new expansion set, making the possibilities endless.
In addition we will offer “plug and play” no solder electronics kits for upgrading your custom saber hilt to a dueling saber with a light up blade, or a fully functional hero level prop with lights, motion detection, and sound.
Our prototype runs have been finished, our electronics are ready, now we need your help. We have partnered with a large scale commercial machine shop and they are standing by to begin production, but to keep prices low and eliminate lead times, we need a very large initial order. We have decided to crowd fund this project because we believe we have built something of tremendous value, if you agree, please make a pledge to help fund Adaptive Saber Parts.”
To start building your very own custom Lightsaber jump over to the Kickstarter website to make a pledge from $150.
