DIY Bug-Zapping Light Saber

Tired of swatting bugs the old-fashioned way? Ever sit on the dock and dream of being a lightsaber-wielding Jedi knight.  Well here's a step-by-step project from Hack a Day to complete that goal !  It may look a little crude but was completed in 20 minutes.  Just think what the final product would look like of you dedicated a whole rainy day at the lake.

Hack a Day advised:

If I were to do this again with a goal of making it nicer, I would do the following.

-use a higher quality light saber that actually lights up. sound effects wouldn’t hurt either.

-stuff the circuit into the light saber handle. It would look so much nicer.

-find some new screen material instead of re-using the material from the racquet.

Please note that this is not a toy but a purpose-built bug killing tool so children need not apply... Full details here
