Yesterday’s big news came from Lenovo with the company announcing the Mirage augmented reality (AR) headset which would come with exclusive experience Star Wars: Jedi Challenges. VRFocus reported that pre-orders seemed to be launching for US consumers first, as it’s turned out that’s not the case with UK customers able to place their orders today.
For Star Wars fans interested in heading to a galaxy far far away, being able to battle Darth Vader or take on the First Order all in AR in their living room, the Star Wars: Jedi Challenges bundle can be pre-ordered directly from Lenovo today for £249.99 GBP.
As previously reported, for that price you’ll get a Lenovo Mirage AR headset which is compatible with Android and iOS devices. These currently are: 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 and Moto Z, with Lenovo stating more will be added.
Also in the kit will be a Tracking Beacon, Lightsaber controller and of course Star Wars: Jedi Challenges (via download). The Tracking Beacon is placed on the floor, acting as a base for the headset’s sensors to aid movement while the Lightsaber controller shouldn’t need explaining.
While the actual release date hasn’t been officially confirmed – Lenovo has merely stated mid-November – VRFocus has found that during checkout the estimated shipping date is 9th November.
