C-3PO, R2-D2, and other Star Wars faves will soon jump into your living space, thanks to a new storytelling partnership between tight-lipped VR start-up Magic Leap and Lucasfilm's immersive entertainment arm ILMxLAB. Magic Leap founder Rony Abovitz announced the collaboration Thursday at a New York Wired conference with the jaw-dropping proof-of-concept vid above.
The visuals, as you'll see, tease how the two companies will work together to develop Star Wars-related content for Magic Leap's forthcoming mixed-reality platform. Shot "entirely in-camera, with no compositing or funny business," the clip has George Lucas' two iconic droids appearing in someone's house to warn of an impending Stormtrooper raid. (There's even a bit of Inception-esque fun, with holograms in the hologram.)
