Star Wars fan builds real-life hovering lightsaber training sphere

Not content to go through his Jedi training without the proper equipment, an enterprising Star Wars fan has created his own hovering globe of tutelage.

YouTube user TrooperTrent took one of those gift-shop hovering models of the Earth and—with a little paint, glue, and foam—transformed it into an impressive little chunk of Star Wars nerdery.

What's missing from this clip is the part where Trent hauls off with his lightsaber replica and bats his carefully constructed teaching aide across the room.
