Star Wars™: Jedi Challenges, A New Smartphone-Powered Augmented Reality Experience Launching this Holiday

Star Wars experiences brought to life with the Lenovo Mirage™ AR headset, Lightsaber controller, and all-new gameplay content from a galaxy far, far away

Available for Pre-Order Now for £249 at Lenovo™ Online; Compatible with Android™ phones and iPhones®

BERLIN — August 31, 2017: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) and Disney today unveiled Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, 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 gameplay.2 Jedi Challenges is being unveiled as part of Force Friday II, which celebrates the worldwide launch of new Star Wars products. The product is compatible with both Android phones and iPhones, and will be available this holiday season; it is available for pre-order now for £249 on Lenovo online and at local retailers.1

“With Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, Lenovo and Disney are bringing Star Wars to fans in ways they could previously only imagine,” says Jeff Meredith, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Lenovo Consumer PCs and Smart Devices. “Augmented reality has always been an important part of Star Wars, and it’s exciting to bring these key moments to life by marrying Lenovo technology with Disney’s storytelling.”

Players will hone their Jedi talents across a variety of augmented reality-based experiences, each offering multiple levels of deep and immersive gameplay. To guide the player on this journey, Jedi Challenges will introduce an all-new Star Wars character, the Archivist. The Archivist instructs players in the ways of the Force™ and the knowledge of the Jedi. Throughout these challenges, users will train to perfect their lightsaber skills by taking on some of the most menacing villains the dark side has to offer, command armies in combat missions to defeat the Empire, and outwit their opponents in Holochess, all in augmented reality.

Game Features:

Lightsaber Battles. With their very own lightsaber, fans can train against legendary dark side villains like Kylo Ren and Darth Vader.
Strategic Combat. Players marshal the forces of the Republic, Rebel Alliance, and Resistance against the might of the Separatists, Empire, and First Order in epic battles across their living room floors. Players can hone their skills in strategy and tactics as they engage in battles.
Holochess. Perhaps one of the most iconic board games brought to film, Holochess first leapt into moviegoer hearts when it was played on the Millennium Falcon in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope™. It has now been brought to life in Jedi Challenges. Fans can direct their holographic alien pieces across the board, wrestling for territory and control.

“We believe augmented reality will usher in a new era of storytelling and play an important role in the experiences we create for our fans,” said Kyle Laughlin, Senior Vice President, Games and Interactive Experiences, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “With Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, we’re bringing together the latest technology and one of the most recognized franchises in the galaxy to fulfil the wishes of anyone who’s ever wanted to wield a lightsaber or take on empire forces on the battlefield.”

Hardware and technology

Users start by downloading the Star Wars: Jedi Challenges app3 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.

Equipped with two built-in fisheye sensors to provide inside-out positional tracking, the headset allows for free and natural motion for the player to move around as they duel opponents or direct their forces and pieces across the battlefield.

The headset pairs with a collectible-quality Lightsaber controller, modelled 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.

Through visible light-tracking technology, the headset’s sensors work together to lock onto the position of the Lightsaber controller, allowing players to see a beam form above the “hilt”, which they can use to block and interact with the universe in-game. Haptic feedback is activated as players strike or block their opponents, while an inertial measurement unit sends rotational information from the controller to the smartphone to assist the beam in remaining stable mid-swing.

Availability and pricing

In the UK, Star Wars: Jedi Challenges is priced at £249 and will be sold online and at local retailers nationwide starting in November. You are able to pre-order the product from today.

Experience Mixed Reality – Lenovo Explorer

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.

The Voice Service Goes Expressly Mobile – the New moto x4

Time to say ‘hello moto X’ once again. The fourth generation moto X has a smarter camera that goes beyond capturing photos. The Landmark Detection feature makes the moto x4 camera your eye to the world – just point the lens at an object, and it will ask if you want to learn about what you’re seeing. Or, spice up your selfies with the Augmented Reality (AR) feature, which lets you add a layer of animations to your photos or videos. The newest moto x4 is also the first of Motorola’s smartphones to feature Amazon Alexa, giving you more options when choosing a mobile digital assistant1. Experience Amazon Alexa integrated right into moto x4 – without even having to unlock it first. Now, whether you’re in a hotel, a friend’s house or simply out and about, the features and benefits of Alexa are always with you. The new moto x4: transforming smartphone intelligence.

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.

Personalizing the PC with Pen, Voice & Biometrics on Yoga 920

No longer does the PC stand for personal computing, characterized by interaction happening in one-way exchange from person to device. Now PC means personalized computing, and AI learning makes it contextually aware of where you are. With this ability, your device can anticipate your needs and interact with you in a variety of ways. The Yoga 920 convertible furthers the journey to a smarter laptop with new smart pen functionality, voice recognition from a distance2, mixed reality options3, biometric security with Windows Hello, and other tools.

Because many of us still want a keyboard or pen for creating, Yoga 920 offers an optional Lenovo Active Pen 2 great for Windows Ink™ that has 4,096 levels of pen sensitivity for drawing and making notes with no discernible lag. Additionally, voice recognition, a hallmark technology of smartphones and smart speakers, comes to the Yoga 920 with Cortana. Now it recognizes voice commands in standby mode and from up to 4 meters away2 so you can add items to a shopping list, play music, check the traffic, send a short email, track packages and much more. Cortana even uses AI to learn from its owners, so the Yoga 920 grows smarter over time. 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 Empire4.

For those who want to see their laptop’s content on a larger screen, they can pair it with the new ThinkVision P27u monitor. It has a 4K borderless display, professional-grade color accuracy and fast response times, with the convenience of USB Type-C connections and the flexibility of a full function stand supporting an optional sound bar.

Additionally, we’re launching the 12-inch Yoga 720, our most portable and compact Yoga 720 model yet at 0.62 inches thin and 2.53 pounds. It comes equipped with optional Active Pen, fingerprint reader and Cortana digital assistant.

One of the unique and underlying security features of the GDPR compliant diskAshur² hard drive and diskAshur² SSD is the dedicated hardware based secure microprocessor (Common Criteria EAL4+ ready), which employs built-in physical protection mechanisms designed to defend against external tamper, bypass laser attacks and fault injections. Essentially the drives feature technology that encrypts both the data and the encryption key, giving you confidence that private information is secure and protected.
So in short, without the PIN, there’s no way in! and you can’t get more ‘James Bond-esque’ than this!
Ideal for users looking for an easy to use secure solution for storing all their data, elegantly designed and available in 4 striking colours (Phantom Black, Ocean Blue, Fiery Red and Racing Green) meaning there’s plenty of technological features to get to grips with. Plus with the HDD available in capacity options from 128GB to 5TB, there will be space for all the family.

(continued on next page..)
The science bit:
With software free set up and operation, the diskAshur² HDD and diskAshur² SSD is platform/device independent meaning it works across all operating systems including all versions of MS Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, Chrome, Thin Clients, Zero Clients and embedded systems.
In fact, the drives will work on any device with a USB port!
Additionally, with an ultra smooth fascia that doubles up as shock-absorbers, the drives being water and dust resistant (IP 56 certified) and supplied with a stylish and sturdy travel case, the iconic contemporary design also features an integrated cable which can be conveniently stored away when not in use.

In addition to EDGE™ technology, the following common features are included:
* Brute Force Hack Defence Mechanism – Intelligently programmed to protect against all forms of Brute Force Attacks. Upon the 15th consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur drive assumes it is being attacked and will delete the encryption key and lock itself, rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever. At this point the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.
* Self Destruct Feature: Users can pre-program the diskAshur drives with a unique Self Destruct PIN which, once entered, instantly deletes the encryption key rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever.
* Unattended Auto-Lock Feature: Set the drive to automatically lock after a pre-determined amount of time where the drive has not been used.
* Wear Resistant Epoxy Coated Keypad: Designed with protection in mind, the diskAshur range offer a wear resistant epoxy coated keypad which hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.
