    What next?

    Lightsabre toothpicks?

    Oops I've lost my last stylus. I think I'll buy one that I can't actually slot into my DS. Hang on a min, that's the reason I lost all mine in the first place. I won't loose this Star Wars one because I'll be having lightsabre battles with all my Jedi friends.

    PS3?

    Is the PS3 being snubbed by Lucasarts then? Where is the official support for the best console ever? I would like to see a Star Wars controller please.

    Those small lightsabers won't fit me.

    toothpicks!

    lets make lightsabre toothpicks that light up and then get lost down the back of the sofa because you can't find anything to keep them in!

    At the risk of causing flames, that is very sad.

    So if it doesn't actually fit in the DS...

    What makes it a DS product apart from the label?

    Presumably it would also not fit inside a Palm Pilot or an iPaq.

    Wow, I hope you got paid for that...

    Seriously, does that *really* merit an entire article?

    They will if you bend over......

    Not just for DS ...

    Obviously it can be used for any pointy device input and I *must* have both packs!

    I think its more sad to say sci-fi related gadgets are sad on an IT news/geek site 8-) Bet you like "football" though? (even more sad for technologists!)

    Hmm

    My first thought was "cool, I want one!", but then I thought again.

    I was actually playing Lego Star Wars on my DS last night, and one of the key points about the game is that you don't use the stylus! There are a few tacked on mini games that use it, but ergonomically the manual (and desire to avoid RSI) says you should use your thumb on the touch-screen for game play.

    For the weak minded...

    You don't need to buy these pale imitations.

    They're not the lightsabres you're looking for.

    Move along...

    doesnt fit?

    they dont even fit into the stylus holder of the DS? what stupid bimbo idiot thought that that was a good idea? as someone else stated - why are these being touted as specific/branded for DS? why not 'N810 stylus' ? icon is obvious.

    If it doesn't fit in the stylus slot of a DS...

    ...it isn't a DS accessory. It's a coloured stick. Only the saddest Lucas fanbois will be after these.

    Was that amazon.co.uk or will I have to get them inported?

    How do they light up though

    if it is a swoosh up, then I can see them being quite popular.

    But if it is just a led lighting up, big whoopy woos, a lot of buyer's remorse if that is the case.
