The Mirage is an AR headset that comes with a ‘replica standard’ lightsaber controller for playing a series of exclusive Jedi skills games, with opponents seemingly projected into the room around you.  Pick up the lightsaber and headset to get for the first time the holographic type of training and battle action.  You can choose a series of exercises to improve your skills against Stormtroopers just like Luke and Obi-Wan used in the first Star Wars movie or do battle like Rey and Kylo Ren did recently.

Choose from six separate solar systems (levels) as you improve your skills.
