Lucasfilm and Magic Leap are pushing Star Wars into augmented rality

The company’s released a teaser video earlier this week, showing two memorable characters from the franchise in an AR setting.

Lucasfilm is joining forces with Magic Leap in order to bring another dimension to the Star Wars experience.

Announced at the Wired Business Conference, the exact details of the union are unclear. Will the partnership be for creating theme park rides; or will it be for special movie effects or for computer gaming? Despite dazzling the world with teasers and demos, Magic Leap is still a company that is keeping its augmented reality technology a closely guarded secret and this partnership is no exception.

However, a video, which premiered at the event in New York on Thursday, showed amazingly life-like computer generated representations of C-3PO and R2D2 appearing in a room, talking straight to camera and appearing to interact with their surroundings.
