Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination

Updated: 22 Oct 2012 03:10AM

The traveling Star Wars exhibit is at the Orlando Science Center through March 17, 2013.

The 10,000-square-foot exhibit has been traveling the country since 2005.

Exhibit is packed with costumes, props, models and robots from all six "Star Wars" films.

Interactive Displays

Millennium Falcon's Cockpit

Jump into a replica of the ship used by Hans Solo & Chewbacca.

The nearly 5 minute ride lets you experience space exploration.

Special effects include rumbling seats, fans, and lights.

Robotics Presentation

This interactive display takes you from mocked up specific purpose robots (pipe inspection and welding) and contrasts these with the Star Wars robots, robot soccer and the Kismet (robot).

Great insight into how the the interaction between robots and humans is evolving.

Living on Tatooine

3 augmented reality kiosks are put up by ARToolworks.

Their software makes virtual images are seamlessly overlaid into a real world setting.

You'll interact with a virtual environment on a large screen.

Setting include reflected imagery of you and computer-generated elements from the Starwars universe which are attached to the prop in the video.

You'll be able to use props in order to build communities in the three virtual environments.

As you and the props interact the augmented reality software creates a video where the props disappear and the interaction between the computer generated elements is altered by their relative positions.
