wait a second, don't call me stupid if there is something I missed but, if the blade was made out of ceramics to resist the heat, wouldn't it shatter on impact with anything?

Watch the other video's. He show's in one of them how strong they are.

thank you sir i direct you to comment 21 for your help

You would never hit the ceramic on anything, the superheated plasma would burn through most things before the ceramic could touch, really the only thing that would have true resistance would be another lightsaber, which would probably kill you both if you actually tried to duel, ceramic would break and suddenly you are both covered in 2000 degree liquid fire. :D

<yfw you get splashed with the plasma.

i see your point but, even superheated plasma doesn't instantly cut through everything, when making a diamond tipped saw to cut other diamonds they often use this plasma in a controlled state, it take a few seconds (5-10) to cut through it, but then again who is going to be swinging at a sheet of diamonds.

Exactly, There are a few things like diamonds, but for the most part things will cut through almost instantly, granted I wouldn't be swinging that thing wildly anyways, I mean all it takes is one mistake.
#19 to #18 - lpplph (06/01/2012) [-]
if anything i would only swing at people

Hahaha fair enough, also to clarify because I just realized how vague my last statement was, imitating the lightsaber scenes from the movies would be idiotic, you'd burn or maim yourself lol.

It would presumably be made of super-strong ceramics. I'm pretty sure those are a thing.
#9 to #8 - lpplph (06/01/2012) [-]
if they aren't then we still got 40-50 years to make em

Then come the YouTube videos of dumbass rich kids accidentally cutting themselves/their friends.
#11 to #10 - lpplph (06/01/2012) [-]
ikr, then after 1 ******* accident, just as the ******* are about to be affordable for everyone, one little rich prick does some stupid **** and they are banned

(a la Rosie O'Donnell) THESE DEADLY ASSAULT LIGHTSABERS ARE A DIRECT AND IMMEDIATE THREAT TO THE SAFETY OF OUR CHILDREN. I SAY WE BAN THESE HORRIBLE COP KILLING WEAPONS IMMEDIATELY.
