Amidst all the hype over recent developments in virtual reality, this augmented reality shooting game might capitalize on all the excitement surrounding the new Star Wars movie. Uploaded by mixed reality company Trixi Studios, new test footage indicates how AR can be used to interact with physical components.

The demonstration contains Star Wars-inspired characters like stormtroopers, Boba Fett and The Force Awakens's BB-8 droid in a shooting game. According to Trixi Studios, the footage was "captured live, and recorded directly on the Project Tango tablet device ... No post editing was later done to the video imagery."

The footage shows where the future of augmented reality could evolve and is an excellent example of how Google's Project Tango could be applied.
