Star Wars\’ Dejarik Becomes a Reality



The “Dejarik” holo-chess from Star Wars is becoming a reality, and the man behind the stop-motion characters is involved.

A new mobile game called “HoloGrid” is being co-developed with the Tippet Studio, and it’s an augmented-reality game where holographic monsters will fight it out on a grid.
