UBTECH’s Robot Joins The Galactic Fray With An AR Star Wars Experience

Star Wars fans are now one step closer to owning an actual Star Wars New Order Stormtrooper!

UBTECH Robotics, a leader in intelligent humanoid robots, enters the Star Wars Augmented Reality (AR) fray following hot on the heels of the recent release of the Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi trailer. Fans would notice vague similarities between Disney and Lenovo’s Star Wars: Jedi Challenges and UBTECH’s newly launched Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper Robot – both promising to immerse users in recreating the series’ battles on their living room floor.

Featuring first and third person AR (Augmented Reality) app modes,  Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper Robot users can immerse themselves in an interactive game experience. By issuing direct verbal orders to their Stormtrooper, they will battle on the side of the First Order against Resistance fighters in the familiar surroundings of their home.  The robot is also programmed with Voice and Facial Recognition. These features allow the robot to carry out tasks such as sentry patrolling, where it can be set to patrol designated areas your home, and detect and respond to intruders.

The Stormtrooper is connected via secured WiFi on an encrypted platform; no personal information is saved to the robot or the app. With features that are closely based on the actual character in the Star Wars franchise, this product promises to deliver a novel and interactive experience for fans.

The Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper Robot retails for SGD529 and is expected to be in stores by end of November 2017. It is available for pre-order now at www.banleong.com and selected retail partners.
