Phone Wars - Smart Phones in Light Saber Battle

This is a very neat idea and one that I am surprised that someone else has not thought of before!  It should really have appeared before either in an advert or a comedy show. 

A number of smart phones do battle against each other - using their apps to create light sabers, amongst other weapons  This very cool animation was created by Cyrus Mir in his spare time. It took a few months but, yes, you read correctly - his spare time.  Amazing.

The animation was created in Maya and Post effects are added in After Effects.

This is an excellent piece of work created with more than a knowing nod in the direction of popular culture both geek and mainstream.  I really enjoyed this immensely.
