Japan Brings Lightsaber Technology to Chopsticks


You think using chopsticks is hard? Trying using chopsticks that are 80% energy blade, and which cut through any material (including sushi). These Star Wars-themed eating utensils were made by Kotobukiya and shown off at the Star Wars Celebration Japan a few weeks ago. Pretty cool, eh?

Wait, I guess lightsabers wouldn’t work as chopsticks at all. Unless they’ve been set to bludgeon, like Luke’s lightsaber in the beginning of Return of the Jedi, when he was using it like a Louisville Slugger to knock Jabba’s henchmen on the skiff. Then they could work. (Via Rebelscum)
