Disney, Lenovo, and Lucasfilm have just teased a brand new Star Wars augmented reality experience that should get Star Wars fans excited. When we say tease, we really mean tease. Details on the Star Wars augmented reality experience are slim and the video below is pretty open to interpretation. More information on the project can be found in the short blog post below. One thing we did notice at the end of the very short twenty-eight-second video is the Best Buy logo. So we can only assume whatever these three are working on, it will be available through Best Buy. Check out the teaser for yourself.
Today at the 2017 D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif., Disney and Lenovo™ gave a first glimpse at a new augmented reality (AR) experience called “Star Wars™: Jedi Challenges.” Featuring an all-new augmented reality headset, the product was designed to give Star Wars fans an opportunity to recapture some of their favorite moments from Star Wars films in ways never before possible.
One of the experiences discussed was “Holochess” – as first seen played in a match between Chewbacca and R2-D2 in Star Wars: A New Hope. Like so many of the unforgettable moments from the Star Wars films, the technology to bring these experiences to life has never existed… until today.
An exclusive video was also shown to fans as a sneak peek at the first-ever AR product featuring a lightsaber – something we believe is essential for any Jedi experience. Fans who want to stay up-to-date on this new experience can sign up here for more information: Jedi Challenges
