Play Star Wars With Lenovo’s Star Wars AR Headset Coming Soon
Disney and Lenovo developing Star Wars augmented reality headset. Last weekend, Disney’s official fan club, D23 held its biennial expo. The event is usually an exciting one because Disney announces its film schedule for the coming years, shows official trailers and behind the scenes videos of popular franchises and fans get to meet their favorite stars.
For fans of Star Wars, the upcoming 8th movie isn’t the only thing to be excited about. Lucas film and Lenovo announced a Star Wars AR headset that brings the galaxy far far away to your room and face.
Although little was mentioned about the technical details of the headset, release date, and pricing, one thing we know is that our dream of being a Jedi is coming true. The AR headset will come with a number of Star Wars games including Holochess and another one called Jedi Challenges that requires you to have your own lightsaber.
The system runs apps downloaded to your smartphone, and it seems like your phone sits inside the headset and functions as the display as well, which suggests that the headset may have a price tag closer to the Samsung Gear VR ($130) than the HTC Vive system ($800).
