Trying to stamp their mark on Earth, a band of rebels called Expedio Design (otherwise known as a “boutique multi-disciplinary creative consultancy based in Petaling Jaya”) came up with a Death Star-worthy plan: developing a lighter called the LighterSaber. Now, that’s an out of this world A+ effort for punny wordplay.
“The 3-year journey of bringing the LighterSaber to life has been such a fulfilling one for all of us involved. Our love for the Star Wars galaxy coupled with our fervent passion for product engineering has brought the LighterSaber closer to reality. We speak to all Star Wars fans out there who we believe will come out in full force to join us on our quest to bring this one-of-a-kind made-in-Malaysia collectible to volume production, enabling anyone and everyone to carry a little piece of the empire in the palm of their hand. Appreciate your support on Kickstarter, we will!” said Ang Tee Chian, Co-Founder and Technical Director of Expedio Design.
“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 (“Schvrmmmmmmm!") effect of the LighterSaber when the flame of the lighter is ignited.” How impressive, this is.
