As we get closer and closer to the new Star Wars movie, you can now take on the Stormtroopers with your own Lightsaber!

Yes, there are hundreds of Star Wars video games out there, but Google Chrome unveiled a new experiment this week.  You can transform your smartphone into a lightsaber in Lightsaber Escape .

To play, you have to go the website https://lightsaber.withgoogle.com. From there, you’ll have to follow instructions and go to another website on your smartphone to calibrate your phone as a lightsaber.  Really.  And then the game begins.

Editor’s Note: I made it out in four minutes… on my second attempt.
