Feel the 'Star Wars' force with the augmented reality game
MANILA, Philippines – The Star Wars fever is far from over. In time for the release of The Last Jedi last December 13, Lenovo came out with an augmented reality game and special edition of the Yoga 920 convertible laptop.

One of the best from Lenovo's announcement will have to be the augmented reality games. Using your smartphones, you can channel your inner jedi through the following games: lightsaber battle, strategic combat, and Holochess. (WATCH: Yes, you can duel with lightsabers like a true Jedi)
What is cool about the game is that it comes with an AR headset and lightsaber controller.
In the lightsaber battle, you get the chance to fight the likes of Dark Vader and Kylo Ren. Some of the media, who were present during the launch got the chance to try the game. I was fortunate enough to give it a try and I must say, training to be a jedi is no joke. The hand techniques alone are not easy, so you have to be ready when you do combat.

Another game that participants took part in during the demonstration was the holochess. The game maybe quite familiar, as it made an appearance in the movie Episode IV: A New Hope. Fans can direct the holographic alien across the board, as it fights for territory and control.
The strategic combat on the other hand allows you to play as part of the Resistance and Rebel Alliance, as you fight with the Separatists, Empire, and First Order in epic battles. All these games can be played anywhere.
For the price of P14,999 or P15,000, it may sound very steep, but if you're a big fan and collector of Star Wars, this may not be bad at all. Not only do you channel your inner jedi, but also get some exercise.
If you're a fan of the movie and looking to spend something for it, there's the Yoga 920 laptop. Weighing 1.37 kg, it has a near edgeless 4k display.
For the Yoga 920 laptops, you can choose whether to ally yourself with the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire. The price: P139,995.
So if you're not done with your holiday shopping yet or pondering what to spend your hard-earned 13th month pay on, check out the gadgets above and feel the strong force that comes with it. – Rappler.com
