Did you see Hasbro’s latest announcement? They’ve unveiled Star Wars Lightsaber Academy – a combination app-and-lightsaber toy for young and aspiring Jedi.
Once you download the Lightsaber Academy App, you can choose from one of five galaxy masters (you choose – Jedi or Sith!) and work your way to lightsaber expert. The experience includes character voices, sound effects and incredibly technology. There’s even a two player option so you can dual with your best friend.
Hasbro’s Michael Ballog, senior director of global brand strategy and marketing had this to say about the Lightsaber Academy: “The Smart-Hilt” technology is tracking their movements and communicating via Bluetooth to the app – but a kid isn’t focusing on this technology per say. They are focusing on the fact that their lightsaber ‘knows’ when they make a move, can give them feedback, and react as they train with Jedi or Sith masters and then battle with friends. This allows them to put themselves into the Star Wars story with their very own personalized lightsaber experience.”
