Star Wars: Jedi Challenges Review: Showing the Potential of AR Gaming

I’ve demoed a lot of smartphone-based, augmented reality (AR) headsets, and while they’ve always seemed to have potential, nothing about them was very compelling. Lenovo and Disney are working to change that this holiday season with a well-thought-out game based on Star Wars, called Jedi Challenges. There are quite a few cute AR games now, but most of them rely just on your phone’s display, so they’re hardly immersive.

The Last Jedi trailer: Four big questions we want the answers to

The first full trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi does its job brilliantly – it teases galaxy-rattling plot lines while leaving you unsure about whether what you think will happen is what is actually going to happen. On top of that, there are the “oohs” of spectacular battle scenes combined with the “ahhs” of some new cute fluffy creatures. We also see Carrie Fisher in some of her final shots as General Leia, filmed before her death last Christmas. Above all, it raises some big questions about what might…
