Parks Graflex 2.0 Lightsaber Hilt Upgraded with Custom Teensy 3.5 Extension Board for Prop Interactions | #starwars #lightsaber

I was recently telling a friend about this Graflex Lightsaber project and then serendipitously the maker – TheFirebrandForge – appeared on a recent episode of Show-and-Tell (video below) – cool! This project is amazing. It uses a Parks Graflex 2.0 ‘saber handle along with a 3D-printed inner chasis, Teensy 3.5 and custom extension board for lights & sound control, to assemble a customized lightsaber prop! (Pleasant side effect is the lightsaber doubles as a VU meter too 🙂 )

Here’s a video of the prop in light & sound action:

And kudos to TheFirebrandForge for stopping by a recent Show-and-Tell where they shared this project as well:
