How to Build a Bug-Zapping Lightsaber

Caleb Kraft over at Hack a Day always wanted to build a lightsaber bug-zapper.  He finally got around to it and posted up a video of how he built it.

I have heard the joke several times that a light saber would make a great bug zapper. However, when [Ricky Sumbody] requested it on Facebook, I thought “why not?”. [Ricky] made a common mistake, he thought the bulb was the part that actually zaps the bugs. A quick google search revealed that many people had the same thought. I decide that, even though building a functional bug zapping light saber might not look as cool, I was going to do it anyway.

Read more about the build over at Hack a Day.
