GOD, weird. So a while back I called WickedLasers' Spyder III a "real life lightsaber." (It wasn't quite that cool in practice). LucasFilm took issue and threw a fit. Here's the whole saga (and ME) immortalized in Taiwanese CGI.
What an honor! (Though I'm not the first Gizmodo duder to get this very special recognition.) But this one's pretty unrealistic anyway as I haven't rocked a bowl cut and cargo shorts since AT LEAST a month or two before this whole laser thing went down. [YouTube - Thanks Richard]
