Title is VERY misleading.
Some guy with video talent, but not a light-saber.

Might ought to change the title, before some mod does it for ya.

As far as creating an actual saber, try to limit the length and strength of
a laser. Pretty tough, I'd imagine.

But, I'm no scientist.

some more info

Nantel is the head of the Laser Micromachining Facility at Photonics Research Ontario, a government funded research institute. His work involves cutting objects by focusing laser beams on them. Nantel agrees that a laser sword without a fixed length could be a bit of a liability. "If you were in a bread and circuses type situation in an arena, the characters would kill every one," he points out.

"Laser beams are parallel rays of light - they'll go very far at the same intensity. That's what they're good for," begins Nantel. "If you put a lens in the way, you can bend the rays of light so that they converge to a focal point. After that the rays start diverging. The intensity will get weaker and weaker the further you go from your focus."
