MORRISVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA – Disney and Lenovo recently released the newest addition to the augmented reality (AR) game, the Star Wars: Jedi Challenges. The AR headset is priced at $199 and lets a user experience battle against the lead Resistance troops and Darth Vader with a lightsaber as seen in the movie series.
Augmented reality (AR) is considered to be one of the best innovations the digital world has today. It has a capacity to convert reality to digital imagery that combines the real world and digital illusion. The Star Wars: Jedi Challenges AR headset gives any player the experience to fight Kylo Ren, Darth Vader, and other lead Resistant troops using a lightsaber. Holding the lightsaber while using the gear will provide the user a realistic digital blade.
The Star Wars: Jedi Challenges revolves in a strategy game to fight off the forces of Resistance and the First Order. It also features the holographic chess or Holochess played by C-3PO and Chewbacca in the Star Wars movie installment in 1977, the Star Wars: A New Hope.
Sooner, Disney and Lenovo will include six other villains including Darth Maul to give the user an awesome experience in battling against Star Wars antagonists. Just like any ordinary AR headsets, the gear also requires the use of smartphone as a tool to utilize and provide computing muscle for the game.
What differs about the device compared to another AR console is a player can still use it without the smartphone – just the lightsaber controller. It can function independently with or without the presence of another console on hand.
Indeed, Disney and Lenovo have pulled-off a very innovative AR gear that has impressive features and specifications. It has a wider field of view that any user will find advantageous while on the game. With a price of $199, the headset denotes and promises value for money.
