In just two weeks the team of two designers put together this stunning 'demo trailer' for Star Wars VR, a proposed virtual reality game that would use Oculus Rift to place you in the centre of some of the saga's most iconic moments.

Built using the Unreal 4 Engine, the trailer is an enticing glimpse of what a virtual reality Star Wars game would actually be like whether it's flying X-Wings over the Death Star or snaring AT-AT's in your speeder on Hoth.

Thankfully though it's trailers like these that'll grab Disney's interest.

For now though, enjoy the thought of being an all-powerful jedi and remember that EA just so happens to be making a version of the iconic Battlefront game for next-generation consoles and that looks incredible.
