Light Saber App for iPhone – Will Snapchat and Instagram Copy?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes out tomorrow and millions of people are going to head to the theater to watch this weekend. The number of Star Wars fans is astonishing. Recently, a Redditor created a light saber app for the iPhone. You can find it at You can also watch the video below. It is very cool.

Now that this app has been promoted on Reddit and all over the web, it is all in due time before Snapchat and Instagram jump on this bandwagon. That is not to say they haven’t already been working on something similar. Snapchat is making millions of dollars (per day) on promoted face filters so a light saber would make sense.

What do you think about this situation? Should the creator get credit for the idea? Are Snapchat and Instagram going to copy what he has done? Should he get a percentage of the profits?
