Thinking back, I wonder if I was perhaps the first person to go to Star Wars with my own Light Saber? It was the day after it opened in 1977. O.K. Here is my Star Wars story...
On the day the original opened we went in Star Trek outfits a friend of mine had made. The theatre manager called us over and offered us a job. He wanted us to make costumes from the new movie and walk around the mall (Westfarms Mall in Ct.) for pay! So we said we would need to see the movie a few times to make sketches and such, he gave us a bunch of tickets.
By the 2nd time I saw the move (still the first day) I was convinced Luke's Light Saber was a lightly modified flash bracket off a Speed Graphic - the camera I learned on and had at home. So when we went back the next day to watch the film a few more times (you know, for research), I brought it with me.
Later that day we met with the manager, he apologized and said the thing was so popular he didn't need to give it any additional publicity. By way of apology he walked over to the ticket reels and spun off several hundred tickets which the four of us split up. For the last few weeks of High School that year we went to see Star Wars with our friends almost every day with those tickets. The only other thing playing was "One on One" with Robby Benson which I as recall my girlfriend and I sat through once. The rest of the tickets went to seeing Star Wars over and over again.

As usual, the chords themselves are all in a separate file - ChordMappings.h - so if you want to change them up feel free. We have added a bunch of Android specific bindings and I am finding them quite useful.
If you decide to play with it, please let me know.
To give you an idea just how simple it is, here is the wiring diagram:
Chording is working well, but there are some issues with BT. You need to forget and re-pair if you turn off bt on the phone. In other situations it does bond as I would expect.
