New AR game teased at D23 Expo.

A new AR game has just been teased by Disney that will let you experience being a Jedi through augmented reality. The new game, called Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, will combine an AR headset along with a smartphone app to help you become a Jedi Knight.

The headset itself was made by Lenovo. It will have two transparent displays which will show AR elements through the real world. Think of it as stripped-down version of Microsoft’s HoloLens, and unlike a VR headset, real-life elements will also come into play.

The tease is indeed intriguing, and the current implementation of augmented reality technology means that this only the start of differences experiences that AR can bring.

No word yet as to when Star Wars: Jedi Challenges will release, but from the looks of it it’s going to be one awesome game.
