Making a Custom Lightsaber Display!

We are completely smitten by the technology the Star Wars fan community have designed and incorporated into lightsaber prop replicas, which blow away the toys we had growing up. Norm shows off the features of a Saber Bay assembled hilt complete with Neopixel illumination and programmable effects, and sets about designing a custom laser-cut stand to put the hilt on display. A fun project to kick off the weekend, and next up will be weathering the prop!
