New Chrome “Star Wars” Experience Turns Your Phone into a Lightsaber
So, it would appear that is lightsaber in your pocket – if you know what I mean? Google is celebrating the “Star Wars” release with a new Chrome which turns your phone into a lightsaber.
It’s called “Lightsaber Escape” and it lets you use your phone to fight First Order stormtroopers on your PC monitor.
This is what Google had to say about it:
“The experience was developed in collaboration with Disney, Lucasfilm and Industrial Light & Magic. The rich 3D graphics were built with WebGL, enabling beautiful, high fidelity 3D renders within the browser. We’re also using WebRTC and WebSockets to enable high accuracy, real-time communication between your mobile and desktop devices, reducing latency and improving interactivity. Plus, building with web standards means the experience works across browsers, and without plug-ins.”
God I hope that means MAC users can’t play it. Fingers crossed, bitchez.
If you want to play it, first head over to the Lightsaber Escape website. Then you use your smartphone’s browser to go to a separate URL. At that point, you should be ready to go and your phone should be goddamn lightsaber (technology is wonderful).
This is what it looks like (but really at this point you should already be playing it:
By the way, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens in two days (tomorrow if you want it bad enough).
