So this has been a long long learning curve.... Its currently still a work in progress but the idea is to make it closely resemble Anakins ROTS blade.

Im currently using a Spark 2 Color board. I originally had an arduino setup but it was just too big and bulky.

Its still a huge WIP but its getting there. I have the grips to mount and the covertec to install plus all the finishing touches. I have the main body all setup though!

This looks really nice. Be careful with making hilts it is totally addictive Very Happy NEC boards are good. What way your Arduino setup? I also plan to make one besides my NB v3 and Stardust.
