There are plenty of cool Star Wars promos that have popped up leading to this week’s release of The Force Awakens, but Google, as they frequently do, has one-upped everyone with Lightsaber Escape. You’re an unnamed Jedi Knight armed with only a lightsaber that has to escape through waves of Stormtroopers… using your phone as your weapon. The only things you need to play are Chrome and a phone. Visit the below link to load the game, where you will also get a custom URL for your game. Type that URL in on your phone to begin lightsaber calibration. Once you’re done with that, you’ll be swinging your phone around like a lightsaber deflecting blaster shots to cap Stormtroopers left and right. In order to get the best experience (the really cool lightsaber noises, obviously) you need the volume up on your phone, which means you probably shouldn’t play when your boss is around.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
