In a recent update from Reuters, Star Wars fans have something great to look forward to after the mega blockbuster release of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘. Some brilliant researchers at a Taiwanese tech company PVD+ have created an algorithm that enables anyone with an apple watch to use the force [to control their drones].

PVD+ was founded in 2013 by Mark Ven, who with a few other members, created this software, which they call “Dong Coding”. With this new algorithm, instead of using controllers to navigate drones, users can now navigate with their hands.

Ven says, other than controlling drones, he can use this algorithm to manipulate lighting. He can not only turn it on or off, but can also change colors.
