Droid Repair Bay works with HTC Vive and Samsung Gear VR, but it is launching first as part of a promotional campaign with car manufacturer Nissan. People who visit certain Nissan dealerships in North America will have a chance to try it out soon, according to Lucasfilm.

Using motion controllers, you must find ways to fix up BB-8 and other similar-looking droids. Lucasfilm is promising to introduce new astromechs that have personalities distinct from R2-D2 or BB-8.

Typo? Did they mean Oculus Rift since Gear VR doesn't do motion tracking?

Give me a full Star Wars VR game! They have a bunch of these little mini-game type things out there already. And by "a bunch" I mean like 1 or 2.
