AR lightsabers!


At D23 today, Disney announced that it's making an augmented reality headset with help from hardware manufacturer Lenovo. It's designed specifically with Star Wars experiences in mind.

During its Level Up video game panel, Disney revealed the headset alongside some footage from mini-games and experiences it's making for it. Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, as the collection is called, includes holochess and, as you might expect, a game that lets you wield a lightsaber. Check out the reveal video above.
