(VentureBeat) Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, an augmented reality headset that makes you feel like a Jedi, debuted in early November in anticipation of the opening of Disney’s The Last Jedi film. Disney is heavily advertising the $200 headset.
Lenovo makes the headset, and Disney designed the AR experiences, combining both animated software with brand new hardware, said Mike Goslin, the vice president of development at Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. He said the team pulled together a mix of game designers, theme park creators, and AR experts to build the device over the past two years.
