Dates of Convention Oct 27, 2005-April 30, 2006







Luke’s original Landspeeder from Episode IV is on public exhibit for the first time, alongside scale models of X and Y-wing starfighters, TIE fighters. Visitors will also see an original Yoda Puppet from the first trilogy, Darth Vader’s actual helmet from Episode III.



In a full-size replica of the cockpit of Episode IV’s Millennium Falcon, visitors experience the jump to lightspeed. A multimedia presentation explores what we know about our own galaxy in a breathtaking ride to the edge of the Universe.





Visitors climb into an air-cushion vehicle and experience how a floating vehicle handles.





Entering a large-scale model of the rusted-steel interior of a Jawa Sandcrawler, visitors meet C-3PO and (via video projection) real-world robotics engineer Cynthia Breazeal, Director of the Robotic Life Group, MIT Media Lab. The robot and the roboticist debate the merits of R2-D2 and how researchers try to duplicate traits such as mobility, perception, and cognition, while introducing some Star Wars robots. A tour of real world robotics follows.





Together, visitors build a spaceport, moisture farm community, and walled Jawa town. Placing cards on a table—the physical landscape—a computer superimposes a building on a site in virtual reality and real time. A VR explorer enables visitors using a head-mounted display to "fly" through the collaboratively built environment. Augment Your Experience With Our Multimedia Tour.





Visitors will see actual vehicles and prototypes that researchers and engineers in our own world have developed.
