Google is unveiling something that is sure to make Star Wars fans geek out. I've been playing with Lightsaber Escape all morning and it's freaking AWESOME. It's a new experiment that turns your smartphone into a lightsaber that you can use to battle Stormtroopers on your computer.

To get started, all you have to do is go to Lightsaber.WithGoogle.com on Chrome to calibrate your smartphone. Before you know it, you'll be learning how to use your lightsaber to battle the enemy. It's the latest program rollout for Google ahead of Friday's release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Meanwhile, the 501st Legion, a worldwide organization of Star Wars fans who dress up like Stormtroopers to perform charity work say they have raised more than a quarter of a million dollars for charities.

Star Wars fans who caught the world premiere in Los Angeles on Monday say the film is everything they've dreamed of, and the look and feel of The Force Awakens is a lot like the original trilogy.
