Star Wars: Jedi Challenges Hands On Impressions - Update

Hi there,

 

welcome to the #LenovoLaunch @ #IFA 2017!

 

I think one of the most interesting products when it comes to the future use of #VR and #AR technologies, will be the Star Wars Jedi Challenge.

 

Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, is a new augmented reality Star Wars product that allows fans to experience Star Wars via an AR headset. It was presented just two hours ago at the #LenovoLaunch venue.

 

Check out 

 

I ll add my personal experience and I´m very keen to test it out, tomorrow when the IFA starts officially.

Re: Star Wars: Jedi Challenges Hands On Impressions

Hi there,

 

I´m back from the IFA where I had the chance to perfect my lightsaber skills at Lenovo´s booth.

 

The battle ground was placed in the middle of the booth and it was black.

 

That´s because the game is used to be played in a very dark room

You need to put on the new Lenovo Mirage AR Headset:

Which supports these Smartphones:  Moto Z and I think the new Z2 Force and Play will do it too, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, Samsung Galaxy S7, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel.

 

Because Jedi Challenges is an app-enable AR experience, you need to download the JediChallenges app before.

(for Android and iPhone)

 

Take the tracking beacon and put it on the ground to track your lightsaber moves.

 

The pink light bubble see below:

And of course take your lightsaber controller:

The red button couldn´t be used at the show, but it is planned that can be used for pushing your enemies aways.

 

Then turn it on at the bottom.

Now you are ready to either play either a lightsaber battles, holochess or strategic combat.

 

I did chose the lightsaber battle against Darth Vader 

 

But before you should read the battle instructions:

Then the battle is on and you are in action I can say :-)

Here´s a video with me fighting against Darth Vader and I won. :-)

 

 

I had much fun and it was a great AR experience! 

 

Best

Andreas

Re: Star Wars: Jedi Challenges Hands On Impressions

Any idea if this will be compatible with the Motorola G5/G5+?

Hi hbg2267,

it´s not listed as an compatible device. Only the Z models are compatible.

 

I think the G5 hasn´t enough CPU power.

 

Here´s the list of compatible devices: https://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/jedichallenges/ 

 

scroll down the page.

 

Best

Andreas
