Not quite sure why they describe them as 'light sabers' and not lights but there we are.

If I had one of those blue keyring lights do you think i could clean my teeth with that?

Exactly what I thought. I think it might look like a mini flashlight. I dunno why they like calling it a lightsaber, I guess so geeks will use it when it comes out.

Pfft. This is nothing special. I've been using the force to clean my teeth for years.

They probably mean just like a light that is used to kill bacteria in the mouth. Like UV rays burn the and kill skin cells... :giveup:


I don't know if I'd like the fact of something I couldn't see burning my bacteria and possible my teeth :eek:

"Anakin! This is no time for brushing your teeth!" :D

That sounds cool and a good lazy idea. I hate toothbrushes.

They just called a laser a "lightsabre" for it to sound neat. Mystery solved.

I'm looking forward to the "vaccination against plaque" myself. Rinse your mouth with it once and it'll be filled with bacteria that eats everything that's bad for your teeth. You'll never have cavities again. Neat or what:D? [Source: Science Illustrated]

The dark side I sense in you. Ruin your teeth is does, look at Palpatine.

Yeah, i think it is just a blue light.
