Lenovo and Disney teaming up for immersive Star Wars VR experience

At a company event, Disney unveiled a VR system it has been
developing with Lenovo to create an immersive Star Wars
experience. For example, you can be playing HoloChess with movie
characters, or engaging in lightsaber battles using a dedicated
controller peripheral – that kind of cool stuff!

The Star Wars Jedi Challenges system comprises a special VR
headset, a lightsaber controller, and apps ran on your
smartphone. The headset is of the type where your smartphone is
mounted in the front, so nothing too revolutionary here. But
then again, this would help for a manageable price tag that
probably wouldn’t be higher than the Samsung Gear VR’s – $100
to $130, depending on whether you score a promotion.

Unfortunately, details are scarce, and the release date or
price are yet to be confirmed. However, we do get to know
that the system will be sold in Best Buy and Lenovo’s online
store. Also, here’s a sneak video peak at how the whole thing
plays out in its current form. All in all, it’s going to make
for a pretty rad toy!
