Disney Joins AR Fray With $200 Star Wars AR Headset

July 19th 2017

At its D23 fan event in Anaheim, CA on Sunday, July 16, Disney announced that its LucasFilm subsidiary and Lenovo are developing a smartphone based augmented reality headset which will feature Star Wars games like Holo Chess, along with a peripheral Bluetooth Light Saber. The headset is essentially a light weight iPhone holder attached to a clear plastic visor.  The cell phone’s images are reflected onto the visor, allowing digital images to mingle with the physical reality in often startlingly realistic ways.
