Star Wars fans who've always wanted to use the force may have a new hope. We're all hopeful after seeing a video shared today showing an interactive mixed reality simulation featuring characters from the movies—in the room with you.
No, it won't be the force flowing around you. Rather, it will be a mixed or augmented reality simulation brought to you by a partnership between digital effects legend ILM and VR pioneer Magic Leap.
The video shows images taken from the actual simulation, and it looks pretty great. Glowing, realistic renderings of everyone's favorite robots wheel around a living room. R2 even finds a table, which he promptly broadcasts a hologram onto.
