LighterSaber on Kickstarter
Ever dreamed of having your very own lightsaber?
Expedio Design is proud to present to you the LighterSaber, a prototypical Star Wars-inspired pop culture device you can hold and ignite in your very own hands. Made out of premium zinc alloy and measuring 2.5 cm in diameter and 12.1 cm in length, this customised 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.
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!
To those keen on bringing this cool little Star Wars-inspired lighter model to life, check out Expedio Design’s Kickstarter page at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1513153946/lighter-saber
