Modifying the Collector's Edition Keychain

Hey, I was just wondering if anyone knows how I could get the lightsaber keychain (which comes in the Collector's Edition of the game) to not blink. As in, stay on constantly rather than off and on. I think it'd be much cooler if it didn't blink. But it's still cool.

Also, I was wondering if there would be any way to focus the beam so it's just a single point of light. I'd like to be able to use it as a laser pointer when the blade is screwed off. I figure that some sort of lens would do it.

Well, there's a mission for you laser pointer enthusiasts out there!

The light certainly is bright. I like my seizure inducing keyring how it is actually. I thought about what it would be light as a steady light, rather than flashing. It'd light up a room. It does now... but it does it 4 times per second

It wouldnt function well as a laser pointer. The light spreads too much.

Good luck trying though. I'd fiddle, but I don't wanna wreck it coz ill never get another

hey gonk try this: find a dark indoor room(large bathroom works best), some toy sabers/saber like things, and a frend or two.

put the strobe on and try some moves out.... never did this with a strobe, just a plain laser. I bet its a riot.

There is no way to do that, as the only type of light that can be a point at any distance is a real laser! The keychain is a bright-as-hell diode that emits plain light.

If they figured out a way to make plain light stay focused to one radius at any distance, they wouldn't need lasers anymore. (Actually, they did figure out a way -- the laser. You only see red lasers in laser pointers because other colors are too expensive.)

I don't think he wanted it to be a laser but instead it to work like a laserpointer...

And for the blinking.. it depends on how it's achieved... You could probably do it, but you'd need to open the thing and look into it first

Right, I'm saying light doesn't work like a laser unless it is a laser. No lens can do it.
