  6. JoJo's DogHouse

    All of those viewers who say a light saber is a more likely to be plasma based if you think about it the blade is emitted from a crystal so it is more laser based except the fact that light is not shown through the crystal. Also I know it's an odd question but James have you thought about using highly concentrated lasers or would that be to expensive, I though if you had multiple highly concentrated lasers then use something to put together the lasers (like the hilt of the light saber) hope I could help even a minor amount.

  7. Mohammed Alam

  8. Marcel Majed

    Can you make the real mjolnir from the mythologie

  9. Arturo Vargas Ramírez

    this would be further enhanced with a barrel with a rifling on it, and idk anything else would be overkill. maybe proposing something stupid like "give it full automatic fire" would be nice too and not that hard to implement, and maybe enhance the design of the very bullets, make shorter, thicker coils and shorter bullets. but idk i love it as is and as you said there is still a lot of potential
