Like a Real-World Lightsaber, Zap Cane Brings the Pain

So imagine yourself walking down the produce aisle at your local grocery store. Everything seems normal until you accidentally bump into a grumpy old man who seems greatly offended that you didn’t give him the right of way. Words are exchanged and you think you’ve had enough of this old guy when BAM, you’ve got a million volts of electricity flowing through your body and you’re left writhing on the ground wondering what the heck just happened while the old man wanders off with your box of clementines in tow. That’s the power that the Zap Cane offers.

It’s true that owning the zap cane is probably the closest thing you’ll ever own that’s like a real life lightsaber. It may not look like much on the surface, but don’t be fooled, This bad boy is capable of delivering a million volt charge whenever the need may arise. At $103 it isn’t all that expensive to get your hands on, either, unless you fortunately reside somewhere it isn’t available for use. Presently, the zap cane is banned in HI,MA,MI,NJ,RI,WI, and PA. The city of brotherly love just can’t handle this much voltage.  I live there, so I’ve searched my feelings and I know it to be true.

If you’re looking for some other lightsaber goodness, we have featured some fun stuff here at Walyou. There’s this DIY Star Wars Lightsaber, for example, although the high voltage is not included. If you’re looking for something a little less insane, you can opt for the Star Wars Animated Obi-Wan Kenobi Maquette. He may not work like a real lightsaber, but it sure is a mouthful trying to say that really fast. Just as good, am I right? Ok maybe not, but he’d still look cool on your local office desk.
