    Scott Budman gives us the first look at the Star Wars exhibit that is opening at the Tech Museum of Innovation this weekend.

    Attention fellow geeks: The 'droids we're looking for are about to be revealed.

    "Star Wars," the exhibit, is about to open at San Jose's Tech Museum of Innovation.

    October 19 is the official opening date.

    The Tech is promising an event where "science meets imagination."

    We're hoping to see some cool stuff from the movies.

    The Tech, along with the Lucas Cultural Arts Museum, is giving us an early sneak peek at how The Tech will handle The Force.

    The exhibit fills 10,000-square-feet  and includes a thrill ride based on the Millennium Falcon, the spaceship featured in the first "Star Wars" movie released in 1977.

    We'll see you on the 19th.

    The display was created by the Museum of Science, Boston, featuring props and displays used in the Star Wars films, and presented by the Bose Corporation.

    It opened in Boston in 2005 and began traveling around the country ever since.

    The final stop is at the Tech in San Jose, where the exhibit will run from Oct. 19 to Feb. 23, 2014. Check The Tech's website for ticket info.
