As we get ready for our big Star Wars Celebration week, we'll be sharing some cool things we are being sent from vendors and others in advance of the convention.
The first is something kind of scientific, and really cool. We've already tried to stump this a few times, it hasn't worked so far. If you can stump this, let us know.
STAR WARS FANS BEING ASKED TO TEST JEDI KNOWLEDGE AGAINST THE FORMIDABLE 20Q ARTIFICIAL INTELLINGENCE! GO TO http://starwars.20q.net/play AND PLAY!!!
Uncle Milton, creator of the innovative Star Wars™ Science brand of toys, is getting ready to challenge aspiring Jedi in a different way. This time, Uncle Milton will be bringing the popular artificial intelligence game of knowledge, 20Q®, into the world of Star Wars with the Jedi Holocron. Holocrons are artifacts that hold an indeterminable amount of knowledge, so what better way to bring the Holocron into our world, than with 20Q®. Even better, Star Wars™ fans can be part of the creation of this new Star Wars™ Science Jedi Holocron! Star Wars fans are encouraged to visit http://starwars.20q.net/play and start playing the game! Think of any being, location, or technology based on all 6 Star Wars movies and TV series and 20Q® will try and guess what you're thinking. See if you can outsmart the Jedi Holocron! The more times you play, the smarter the artificial intelligence of the Jedi Holocron will become. Look for the Star Wars Science Jedi Holocron on store shelves beginning in Fall, 2015.
Below is more information on the Force Trainer II which we will be trying out at Star Wars Celebration ...
The Force Trainer II: Hologram Experience: In 2009, Uncle Milton launched one of the most innovative Star Wars toys of all-time – The Force Trainer. This incredible toy enabled fans of all ages to move and control an object with the power of their mind using real brainwave technology and quickly became a hit with Star Wars fans and the media worldwide.
In 2015, Uncle Milton introduces The Force Trainer II: Hologram Experience, where once again you are the Jedi, but this time aspiring Jedi can use their concentration to move holograms! Imagine that you could raise an X-wing Fighter from the Dagobah swamp just like Luke Skywalker, battle Darth Vader, or build your own lightsaber with just the power of your mind! These magical scenes are re-created through hologram images and a wireless headset with real brainwave sensors that read and interpret your levels of concentration. The more you focus, the more successful you are in moving and controlling the hologram image and successfully completing the Jedi challenge. The hologram images and Jedi challenges come through a companion app included with the purchase of the product and powered by the user’s tablet device which projects these holograms into the unique Jedi themed training base.
There are 10 different Jedi training levels through which fans can advance from Padawan to Jedi Knight to Jedi Master, with instruction and guidance from Jedi Master Yoda. Additional Jedi challenges will also be available for download on updated versions of the app as new Star Wars movies are released. Ages 8+. SRP $119.99. Available Fall 2015.
