At their video game presentation, Disney just made a surprise announcement of a new augmented reality product that will bring the Star Wars universe to life at home.

It’s called Star Wars: Jedi Challenges and comes from a new partnership between Disney and Lenovo.

Through a special augmented reality headset in which you snap your own cell phone, you will be able to wield a lightsaber at home or even play Holochess.
