For all you Star Wars fans out there, YouTuber >Styropyro may have just brought us one step closer to having an actual lightsaber.

Also known as ‘The DIY Laser Guy’, Styropyro has created an extremely powerful blue laser from a 9mm 450nm laser diode and a custom machined host.

The laser is strong enough to shoot through cardboard and instantly sets fire to paper, ping pong balls and even wooden splints.
