Harvard scientists have created a lightsaber…kind of.
Before you start thinking of amputating arms, they didn’t actually “create” a lightsaber. Instead, a joint Harvard-MIT research team has “managed to coax photons into binding together to form molecules”, creating “photonic molecules.”
Those molecules basically behave like the green (or red, if you’re a Sith Lord) glowing stuff you’d find in a lightsaber.
May the force be with you.
