Jedi Tech

Ended March 23, 2014

A long time ago, in a workshop far, far away....

Innovators came to tinker with Star Wars®-themed art, science, and technology and unleash their inner-Jedi.

Skywalker Writing

Build, test, and iterate on hovercrafts with LEDs attached. See what you can design to light up and hover in our light-tracking wind tube that captures your hovercraft's technological tracks. Leverage "The Force" for your intergalactic light paintings and experience the power of sensors and actuators as you control the movements of your hovercraft with a wave of your hand.


Ever wanted to know more about the technology inside that lightsaber you’ve been eyeing at the toy store? Build a lightsaber as you tinker with circuits, switches, and LEDs. Swing your lightsaber to make light paintings that capture your saber’s tracks as it swings through the air. Even if a true Star Wars laser sword with a blade of pure plasma in a force containment field defies our current understanding of physics, we still want to make one!
Check out our instructions on how to make your own Techsabers at home!
