The augmented reality game you never knew you wanted

You may look a tad bit silly playing Vertigore Games’ Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner in public, but that’s okay. You’ll likely be enjoying yourself so much, you won’t even notice the onlookers who are silently judging you. But hey, their loss — you’re shooting up TIE fighters, and that’s pretty cool.

What makes this experience cooler than, y’know, all of those other times you blasted the Empire’s ships away in the comfort of your own home, is that it’s fueled by augmented reality. Just watch the video, and everything will become clear. The game is supposed to come down the App Store pipleline by the end of this month.

I can’t wait to see someone playing this on the light rail so I can give them an awkward look of geeky approval.
