A newtoy revealed Tuesday by Hasbro gives its wielders the ability to change its color with a quick scan of any item around them.
The Dino Fury Chromafury Saber re-creates the Rangers' weapon from the current season of the show but adds in both color-scanning technology and color-changing LEDs that allow it to take on the color of anyor any other shade.
The sword's scanner is in the end of its hilt and is activated by pressing a button. While Hasbro says it works best with flat objects, scanning a red box should turn the sword red. Scanning an orange piece of paper should turn it orange and so on.
To make the colors as close as possible, the sword's scanner measures the reflected light color and then translates it into a mixed LED color for the blade. Further tweaks are made in the translation to make the emitted light color look as accurate as possible to the scanned color.
The sword's design includes a pressable Dino head that can "chomp" when pressed, and when swinging it, sound and light effects play based on the movement.
Each set of sound effects will be associated to one of the Power Ranger colors, and when using an alternate color the sound effects will map to whichever is closest. The current colors of theare red, green, blue, black and pink, with a arriving to the show later.
The Chromafury Saber will be available this fall and will cost $30 in the US.
