nicolas amiard imagines the fall of star wars battleships in current cities
all images courtesy of nicolas amiard paris-based graphic designer imagines the convergence of fantasy and reality by bringing together contemporary cityscapes and the star wars series. amiard’s collection of digitally-enhanced images envision surreal yet strangely lifelike scenarios where battleships crash land in the middle of today’s most densely-populated urban landscapes. examples of the scenes include a lucrehulk-class droid control ship meeting a mountainous panorama as it falls into the coast surrounding rio de janeiro; an enormous star destroyer ship haphazardly lands just in front of paris’ seemingly minuscule eiffel tower; a millennium falcon spaceship unexpectedly collides into the water surrounding lower manhattan.

Star Wars Electronic Battleship takes the classic kid’s game Battleship and updates it to ultimate geekery. It comes with six different Imperial and six Republic ships to battle it out in one of four different games. The system guides players through the different games with digitized voice commands, while the distinctive sound of ion cannons, concussion missiles, and proton torpedoes signal salvo launches. You can even play solo (as in by yourself, not Han Solo). The whole game folds up so you can take it with you.
