VR/AR Bring Silver Screen Content to A Headset Near You – Premiers Star Wars: Jedi Challenges

Star Wars: Jedi Challenges is a new augmented reality Star Wars product that allows fans to experience Star Wars in ways never before possible. Jedi Challenges features a smartphone-powered Lenovo Mirage AR headset, Tracking Beacon, Lightsaber controller, and hours of Star Wars gameplay1. The product is compatible with both Android phones and iPhones. Users start by downloading the Star Wars: Jedi Challenges app2 onto their compatible phone and sliding the phone into the tray of the Lenovo Mirage AR headset. Sleek, portable and lightweight, the Lenovo Mirage AR headset will provide full gaming immersion with an optimal level of comfort during gameplay. The headset also comes with a Tracking Beacon, which is placed on the floor and acts as a stable base for the headset’s sensors to detect the user’s movement during gameplay. The headset pairs with a collectible-quality Lightsaber controller modeled after the one wielded by Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker and Rey. Designed to be a key part of the experience, the Lightsaber acts as a controller and pointer, allowing players to navigate the user interface, with all controls, actions and commands activated with a simple two-button configuration.

Our open approach to partnerships and building new experiences blending devices and trailblazing content makes us different from other vendors, and we think this approach leads to better, game-changing experience. Together with Microsoft, we’re building a different type of VR world with the Lenovo Explorer Mixed Reality headset with more than 100 VR-ready titles. We designed Lenovo Explorer as a natural, affordable extension of your PC: You can access Microsoft Office suite, browse online or watch shows in a virtual home office environment, play virtual reality (VR) games, explore and discover through holo-tours, and enhance the video-watching experience via 3D, 360-degree and 4K videos. Set it up in just minutes by connecting a cable to your PC.

Or, spice up your selfies with the Augmented Reality (AR) feature, which lets you add a layer of animations to your photos or videos.

Transform Your Tablet – Lenovo Home Assistant Pack

Alexa makes other devices smarter too, and we’re bringing it first to our tablets. The family-focused Tab 4 Series just got even more versatile thanks to the Alexa-powered Home Assistant Pack. Use your voice to get news, the weather or your calendar, and see it all on the Tab 4’s display. Do even more with just your voice, using it to shop online, listen to a song or control your smart home. You can find what you’re searching for using the tablet’s on-screen display cards on its 10-inch or 8-inch screen. All you need to do is ask. The Home Assistant Pack equips the Tab 4 with the “Home Assistant” app, a powerful three-watt speaker and far-field voice detection with two mics so you can talk to search and hear your results from up to three meters from any direction. To experience this level of personalization, insert your Tab 4 into the Home Assistant Pack, watch your screen switch to the Home Assistant Interface, and you’re ready to go. And at just 320 grams, this lightweight tablet goes anywhere you do. And with the optional Kid’s Pack and Productivity Pack, the Tab 4 now lets you do a lot more, with one device. Besides offering the option to transform into a smart assistant, the Tab 4 also offers a Kid’s Pack for a 2-in-1 and a kid’s tablet and Productivity Pack to do more.

It fuses power, such as up to an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Windows® 10 OS and dazzling visuals with a nearly bezel-less 4K IPS touchscreen in a 13.9-inch frame.

Weighing in at just 1.37 kg (3.02 lbs), the four-mode convertible flexes 360° from a laptop into a tablet. Additionally, Yoga 920 comes in limited edition Gorilla® Glass cover designs: Yoga 920 Vibes featuring a “visual vibration” design, Star Wars Special Edition Yoga 920 Rebel Alliance and Star Wars Special Edition Yoga 920 Galactic Empire.6
