    Sabertron: Foam Swords With Electronic Scoring



    It is a sad, sad thing that this did not exist before now.



    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...tronic-scoring

    An idea so overdue for production, it’s ridiculous that you aren't already battling in a sun-dappled field of fresh buckwheat.With Sabertron, swordsmen & swordswomen will be able to have sword fights with swords that keep score electronically, without any additional equipment. A series of LED strips integrated into the front and back of the handle keep track of player health. A sword-to-sword hit doesn't decrement health. A hit to the body of an opponent results in a loss of health until a fighter wins the duel.
    This is accomplished through extraordinarily complicated scientific engineering type stuff. For more on that, read the section labeled ‘extraordinarily complicated scientific engineering type stuff.’

    Interesting, too floppy for realism though. Also given the way my gym goes through padded sticks durability is a concern.

    How long before the Disney Intellectual Property lawyers swoop in to defend the Star Wars copyrights for which the company paid mountains of cash?

    Might get people interested in taking arnis or kendo.

    Why not just tape some foam noodles to a boken and not hit each others like assholes?

    The foam "blades" are replaceable, at least.

    Be interesting to see what the cost of the replacement "blades" are, might be pricey for what is in effect a foam noodle.
