Instasaber iPhone App Turns Paper into a Virtual Lightsaber

We’ve all dreamed of owning our own lightsaber, just like the ones that Luke and Darth Vader used in the movies. Sure, you can buy props that look pretty awesome, but we all want a lightsaber that is actually made of light, like in the movies. Forget plastic tubes.

Well, we can’t get one in the real world just yet, but there’s a new app that can make it happen in the virtual world at least. All you need is a rolled up piece of paper.

Check out this video demonstration of the InstaSaber app for iPhone. It uses augmented reality tech to turn a rolled up piece of paper – or any white cylindrical object – into a lightsaber when viewed on your phone. It’s as close as you can get to an actual Star Wars lightsaber experience. Basically it will provide you with a few seconds of fun and excite your inner geek so much that you will have to use it again and again.

If you want to try it out, you can download it right here. Pretty cool. As seen in the video, you can even use it to get rid of pesky Porgs. One day, lightsabers will be real, but until then, we at least have this app.
