It’s somewhat weird to write this article today since the sky shows itself from its brightest side with a clear blue canvas and full on sunshine.

It’s time for Star Wars to take the torch. To give you your awesome gadget of the day, I present the Star Wars Lightsaber Umbrella! It’s nothing complicated and nothing that will have you become a Jedi just from owning this badboy item. It’s merely an umbrella that will keep you dry during rough weather, and it will light up the street as you are making your way home while it is dark and raining outside. The umbrella will set you back $45.50, and by the looks of it, it is is actually licensed from LucasFilm LTD. However I wouldn’t count on it…
