Lenovo sees augmented reality (AR) as a platform for a new kind of storytelling and immersive entertainment. AR has also become an important part of Disney and Lucasfilm’s vision for engagement in storytelling.
As a result, Lenovo has collaborated with Disney and Lucasfilm to bring Lenovo’s consumer technology expertise together with Disney’s world-famous properties and capabilities in content development.
Inspired by the Star Wars Holochess game shown in Star Wars: A New Hope, the Lenovo Mirage AR headset was built truly from the ground up to recreate an immersive augmented reality experience for Star War fans of all ages. Users were able to truly enjoy key moments in the Star Wars films – a new type of experience that had never existed until now.
Star Wars: Jedi Challenges lets fans live their dream of battling with a Lightsaber in augmented reality and other in-game experiences through the Skywalker Lightsaber and Lenovo Mirage AR headset.
This product comprises three pieces of hardware: The Lenovo Mirage AR headset, the Lightsaber controller and the Tracking Beacon.
- The Lenovo Mirage AR headset is an all-new augmented reality head mounted display (HMD) designed to give Star Wars fans an opportunity to recapture some of their favorite Star Wars moments.
- The Lightsaber Controller is a Lightsaber device that pairs with the Lenovo Mirage AR headset for fans to experience Star Wars in AR. The Lightsaber was intricately designed by Lucas film to be modeled after the Skywalker Lightsaber.
- The Tracking Beacon acts as a stable base and zero reference point for the sensors in Lenovo Mirage AR headset.
