in Movies, Technology

Star Wars fans looking for ways to pass the time until “The Force Awakens” opens in theaters next month can now visit google.com/starwars to decide once and for all if their allegiance is to the light or the dark side of the force.

With their choice made, fans will see their Google apps adapt accordingly, with “special experiences” developed for Android Wear Watches, Google Calendar, Chrome, Chromecast, Gmail, Google Maps, Google Now, Waze and YouTube. There will be added features as well for Gmail, Google Translate and Google Search users.

Not only that, a new virtual reality experience presented by Google and Verizon will launch on Dec. 2 using Google Cardboard Virtual Reality via the official Star Wars app.

ILMxLAB, a division of Lucasfilm, developed the experience, which “combines a compelling story and exclusive, never-seen-before content, which ties directly into the opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with the very latest cutting-edge Virtual Reality technology.”

You’ll also want to get your hands on four custom “Star Wars” designed Google Cardboard viewers available at Verizon stores starting Dec. 2.
