We are all massive Star Wars fans in this family, eagerly awaiting the release of the movie Star Wars: Rogue One movie on the 16th December so I was delighted to get the opportunity to review the Star Wars Force Lightening Ball from Uncle Milton. It's not only very cool, having the wow factor but educational too helping you explore and learn about plasma energy which personally I have always found fascinating.
Star Wars Force Lightening ExplainedIn the amazing world of Star Wars, Force Lightning is a dangerous, energy based attack used by many on the Dark Side. It flies directly out of a Sith’s fingertips in bright blue bursts of energy. It’s a very powerful battle tool and most cannot fight against it, but there are some in the Star Wars universe who are strong enough to deflect the power of Force Lightning, including Jedi master Yoda.
The Science Bit
On Earth, plasma is similar to the energy coming from Force lightning. When a human finger touches a plasma ball, the filaments become attracted to it because the energy can discharge through our bodies. With this Force Lightening Energy Ball you can experiment and see if you are able to control the plasma inside it just like the Sith. It really is awesome!
Putting it to the Test
With this Energy Ball you can harness the power of Force Lightning like Yoda and The Empire. We all took turns in seeing what would happen when we tried to control the plasma. There were lots of words of amazement and excitement when the kids (little and *ahem* big) had a go. All you have to do is touch the Energy Ball and immediately you will see pulses of real plasma energy stream directly towards your fingertip allowing you to move light energy with your hands just like a Sith Lord. It's so much fun and very addictive too. I think I loved experimenting with this just as much as the kids. The Force Lightening Energy Ball itself looks brilliant on display, is educational and entertaining, a fantastic product which any Star Wars fan would love to get their hands on.
Where to Buy
The Uncle Milton Star Wars range can be purchased from Flair and is part of a range of Science Toys to celebrate the release of the new movie. They are all superb and will really spark the interest of kids like mine who are obsessed with all things Star Wars and get really excited when they are given the opportunity to experiment and explore science.
