ILMxLAB Featurette Details the Studios VR and Augmented Reality Ventures

A new featurette for ILMxLAB has been released to show off the cutting edge virtual reality and augmented reality story driven immersive experiences it’s working on. The studio is composed of a mix of  Industrial Light & Magic, Skywalker Sound, Lucasfilm’s Advanced Development Group, and the Lucasfilm Story Group personnel.

One project from ILMxLAB that is getting some play today is the Trials on Tatooine game/immersive cinematic experience. This has been built for the HTC Vive, and you can see what the experience looks like in a 2D presentation below.

It definitely looks like ILMxLAB is up to some radical new experiences set in the Star Wars universe, so hopefully the technology will be reasonable in price so we can all check it out. Head on up above to watch the studio featurette.
