Star Wars AR – StAR wARs I guess?

This video is doing the rounds of using the world around you as a backdrop for playing a tie fighter shooting turret game on the iphone.

There have been some great advances in using the iphone tilt and touch to control Star Wars related games and I am sure the Kinect game will be equally evocative with motion control for force and lightsaber.
It is probably that 1977 and Star Wars in general has been the grounding for many of the gamers and inventors of today that it is so obvious to replicate the things we saw back then into games tech in out hand today.
Likewise these advances in holography quickly get on to referencing the holograms seen in Star Wars.

All very amazing tech indeed and closer than we think.
