Giant Multi-Touch Star Wars Video Game - Student Made

This is awesome! A Graduate student from the University of Illinois by the name of Arthur Nishmoto has created one of the coolest Star Wars video games ever! This is an unofficial game called Fleet Commander, the game "explores how a real-time interactive strategy game that would typically rely on complex keyboard commands and mouse interactions be transferred into a multi-user, multi-touch environment." In the video below you will see the players of the game playing on a 20 foot screen. I'd love to have a crack at this game!

It's only a matter of time before George Lucas finds out about this and has the game destroyed. Check out the video below!

Here are some more details:

Developed at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) by MS graduate candidate Arthur Nishimoto, “Fleet Commander” explores how a real-time interactive strategy game that would typically rely on complex keyboard commands and mouse interactions be transferred into a multi-user, multi-touch environment. Originally designed for use with TacTile, a 52-inch multi-touch LCD tabletop display, “Fleet Commander” game play has been ported to  EVL’s 20-foot wide multi-touch LCD wall, Cyber-Commons. “Fleet Commander” uses Processing, an open source programming language.
