LightSaber is a fun app that turns your Symbian device into a virtual light saber.

These days there are so many fancy dress costumes and Star Wars toys around that it's quite easy to pretend you're a Jedi.

Now you can take the Force around with you wherever you go thanks to this rather fun app for the Nokia 95 (and various other accelerometer-equipped devices).

The device's much-hyped 'accelerometer' allows the phone to track movements, meaning that every time you swing the device LightSaber plays the sound of the famous war stick.

The noises in LightSaber are pretty realistic and it features the famous swooshing sound along with the noise of two light sabers touching.

There's also an illuminated screen that's great for impressing your mates in the dark (or demonstrating how sad you are to be waving around a phone and pretending it's a weapon from Star Wars).

LightSaber is a fun diversion and a good example of how the power of the N95's accelerometer can be harnessed by applications, in much the same way as the motion-sensitive controllers for the Wii work.

That’s right, with this app, you can use your Nokia N95 as a lightsaber. Well, it makes the right sounds, anyways. Install the app (this must be on the phone’s internal memory, NOT the memory card), and then press the center button on the d-pad to power your new lightsaber on.
