The "blade" of the lightsaber consists of two scrolls of translucent material that lie flat when fully wound, just like a tape measure inside a scroll.As each ribbon shoots out of the end, it bends into a semicircle, forming half of the sword's blade. They are permanently mounted on a circular lightsaber "tip" that also pulls a string of flexible LEDs that are mounted on a third motorized spindle inside the lightsaber frame. The two halves of the lightsaber are pulled together by a "knife-shaped" zipper as they exit the lightsaber, creating a lightsaber beam.

The "lightsaber" from Star Wars is really coming! After his speech on April 8, Disneyland Chairman Josh D'Amaro brought out a retractable lightsaber that has never been seen before. Although there is no video evidence, but Disney and Star Wars fans have been circulating on the network. Speculation is rife, with many pointing to the "retractable, internally illuminated sword blade device" patent granted to Disney in 2018.

 

The Verge's editors also went through the technology patent in detail, and VR developer Ben Ridout introduced the concept design of the Disney lightsaber with a simple set of animations. Yes, they are invented. But it won't melt metal blast doors and can't cut off your hand, it's just a glowing blade that retracts with the push of a button."

The tweet reads: "Next, widen the bands and add curves so they partially wrap around each other to form a full cylinder. Drive this system with a motor so that the two reels can extend and retract in sync at the push of a button. Now, you've got a lightsaber!" The magic here really comes down to a pair of fancy electric tape measures. The patent even mentions a "metal carpenter's tape measure" as a source of inspiration.
