MacSaber – Turn your Mac into a Lightsaber

MacSaber turns your Mac laptop into a light saber

Have you ever wished your Mac was as light saber?? Of course you have! Ok maybe you haven’t, but wouldn’t it be cool if you swung your Mac around and it made light saber sound effects? Indeed that would be cool.

MacSaber is a hilarious app that uses your MacBook or MacBook Pro’s SMS controller to create the famous Star Wars Lightsaber sound effects based on movement and motion. It is completely useless for anything but a laugh, and expect to lose some productivity with this thing while you show off to your coworkers and family members that you are now part of the super geeky Mac Jedi order.


MacSaber is compatible with a lot of different Macs, as long as the Mac has a sudden motion sensor (SMS) to detect movement of the hardware. That includes MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and there are also versions of MacSaber for some iBook and PowerBook models, but we haven’t tested those, they can be found at the developers site below. Enjoy!

If you want a laugh, check out the demonstration video below of two Jedi masters engaging in battle with their Light Saber combat MacBook thanks to MacSaber:

Is this wonderful? Cool? Nerdy? Dorky? All of the above? Hey if you’re a Mac fan and a Star Wars fan, it’s all in the name of fun!
