LightSaber™ Flash Toy

This is a neat little toy - select a LightSaber™ and wave it about. There are nine different LightSabers™ including Darth Maul's double blade.

That's it really but it kept me occupied for a few minutes! ;)

Anything but work, huh? :>

It's not my fault a full build can take up to 12 minutes. Yay!

Merg said...

HAH! Of course it is -- you're the one writing all that hugely bloated code that includes 17 hojillion libraries (sorry, "packages") that aren't ever actually used/referenced. And you probably added "sleep" statements to the build script, too... :p

mmChronic said...

I explicitly import package.class where required. This codebase though is about 5 years old and has been worked on by loads of coders so yes there will indeed be import kitchensink.* style statements.

No comment on the sleeps though. :)

Well, after the light sabres have gotten dull, try this. It's not as cool as light sabres, but it might keep you amused for another 30 seconds...

mmChronic said...

I've seen that one before - and it still kept me amused for 30 seconds. :)

Oh dear...

I tried the light sabre one... not impressed -- it would have been so much cooler if the sound had reflected the type of movement correctly instead of just being the same sample over and over...

I'm still tempted by one of those 100 quid replicas that does proper sounds... must... resist... toy... light sabre.... must... resist...

mmChronic said...

I was hoping the sound would be good. Obviously being here I hadn't heard it. Bah. Lazy fsckers.

it's just the same light sabre "bzzzz" sample repeated with every swing :/
