Augmented reality based Star Wars tease issued by Project Tango

Google’s new video offered a mixed-reality style environment to bring digital and physical objects together.

Trixi Studios recently released a video that brought the new BB-8 Star Wars droid into a fun new augmented reality based environment in which digital objects were brought into the physical environment.

This experience was meant to provide Star Wars fans with a fun glimpse into what AR technology can do.

Despite the fact that Project Tango at Google and Hololens from Microsoft are both considered to be in the early phases of development, they are both working at full tilt to try to make the augmented reality experience more broadly available. Some of the recent releases have include the Hololens development kit from Microsoft that comes with a price tag of $3,000, while the development kit from Project Tango is a notably more affordable $512. The release of the Star Wars simulation was only one of a range of AR technology based teasers that have been released over YouTube in recent weeks.

There have also been several other players that have been strutting their augmented reality stuff.

Among them was the rather mysterious Magic Leap, which has been quite secretive about what it’s been up to. That said, it didn’t hold off releasing its own AR technology based video recently. With each new release, it becomes more clear that the tech has quite a bit to offer in terms of a unique and fascinating experience for users.

When it comes to the more recent Star Wars video, while the BB-8 droid was featured, it wasn’t the only character that made its way into the spotlight. In fact, there were several character interactions available as the creator of the video made it possible to provide digital representations of Boba Fett and Stormtroopers to be fought off.

While it is clear in the videos that the animations remain in earlier forms, the point wasn’t to show how accurate and detailed the animations could be. Instead, it was a fascinating demonstration of the type of features augmented reality could have to offer. The fact that top Star Wars characters were brought into the mix showed that there is some meaningful potential on the fun side of the spectrum.

Star Wars mobile game app with augmented reality launched by Disney

The new application also offers a range of different features such as mini-games, news feeds, and selfie tools.

The Walt Disney Company has now released a new mobile game app with a Star Wars theme that is designed to give users the complete experience, from selfie tools to mini-games, and from news feeds to a number of augmented reality components, among other things.

This free mobile app was released last week and is meant to be the official connection to the brand.

In fact, when Disney released it, they called it “your official mobile connection to a galaxy far, far away.” The mobile game app is free to download and is available for both iOS and Android users. While mobile apps that are tied to movies have a tradition of being so-so, at best, this one at least provides users with a large number of different types of experience and it has been created to keep fans up to date with the very latest at the same time.

The Star Wars mobile game app is meant to keep fans entertained and informed as the new movie release approaches.

Once this mobile app has been downloaded, the user is able to choose from among three different possible themes: Droid, Light Side, and Dark Side. The app runs a countdown to the release of the next Star Wars movie, and has a feed of news relating to the film and the franchise. It also provides users with a library of official videos, sound bites, and images from the animated series and films. The images are apparently of rather poor quality, but users appear to be enjoying the sound board feature.

It is, however, the augmented reality element that is standing out the most in this mobile game app. This is because it allows smartphone and tablet users to project images of characters from the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” movie onto the real world around them, when viewed through the device screen. Among the characters that are available include the new BB-8 droid and a stormtrooper. Disney has pointed out that “This app will continue to grow, evolve, and become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.”
