Looks like the Force can finally be with you, but, seriously, safety first! 

Lasers have existed for a while, but this is the first time we've seen a handheld laser this powerful. Unsurprisingly, ThE DIY Laser Guy who built it made it up to look like a lightsaber.

While the results are not quite the perfect replica of our dreams, it cannot be denied that this real-life lightsaber is pretty amazing. The following video shows it going up against a number of different objects and pretty easily burning right through most of them instantly.

Unsurprisingly, you'd need to wear some serious goggles to use this thing. Even still, we're happy to watch this video from afar. Turns out, even in real life, lightsabers are pretty dangerous!
