HAPPY NEW YEAR, MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU IN 2016 !
At Claranor, we want to write a letter to George Lucas regarding the technology behind the famous sword used in Star Wars. Here it goes:
"Dear George, why don’t you use pulsed light technology instead of the old fashioned, dangerous, power extensive, low yield continuous neon light?
The benefits are countless: Obi-Wan Kenobi could fight with an incredible 1 MW/ 0,3 MS intense flash sword, the proud Jedis could plug and play their sword. All made possible on a simple 220V electric plug! And a lot more compact.
Not to mention that pulsed light technology would certainly have prevented Anakin Skywalker to mute to Dark Vador: yes, the high sterilization effect (up to 5 log) would have instantly killed the dangerous bacterial environment at the heart of the dark side of the Force.
Dear George, at Claranor, we are ready to support you in the next episode. Please contact us."
