Like thousands of other Star Wars Fans I will be making the trek to Anaheim, California for Star Wars Celebration VII next week and if you are a Star Wars fan like me you probably pride yourself in your knowledge of the characters, locations, and technology from the Star Wars films and TV series. Well, now you can put your knowledge to test and help Uncle Milton create their upcoming Star Wars Science Jedi Holocron.
Here's how to get involved:
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.

Six new items feature innovative technologies, real science-based toy experiences, and a whole new way for kids to experience the world of Star Wars!
In 2009, Uncle Milton launched a popular line of innovative toys, providing real science learning and a direct connection between the Star Wars universe and our own. Now, with the next generation of Star Wars movies comes the next generation of Star Wars Science toys with six new, innovative items in 2015. Use a Jedi Force Levitator to suspend objects in mid-air, a light blaster to create phosphorescent light-up Star Wars scenes, a Jedi Holocron that can read your mind, and the power of your concentration to move holograms with the amazing new Force Trainer! Featuring innovative technologies and real science-based toy experiences, these new toys will inspire kids through science while providing fans of all ages with fun, new ways to experience the world of Star Wars.
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.
Jedi Force Levitator: Now Star Wars fans can magically suspend and move objects in mid-air just like a real Jedi, using an invisible electrostatic force! Force Push with the Jedi Training Rod.

Millennium Falcon UV Light Battler: Create glowing, phosphorescent Star Wars images, then watch the
magically disappear! Just release UV light from the blaster to charge and create a glowing scene or drawing.

sound effects. Or, draw on your image with UV light. Includes scene stencil, UV light screen, and glow-in-
the-dark decals for added fun. Ages 5+. SRP $29.99. Available Fall 2015.
Jedi Holocron: Try and outsmart the Holocron―then watch it read your mind! Using a proprietary Star
Wars 20Q algorithm, the Holocron magically guesses whatever Star Wars person, place or thing you are

Wars Rebels TV show on Disney XD, the Jedi Holocron provides hours of interactive, thought-provoking fun! Ages 6+. SRP: $24.99. Available Fall 2015.
Lightsaber Crystal Growing Lab: Kids can now grow and display their own lightsaber crystal! Just mix
together a liquid solution and watch it crystallize and grow over time into a real crystal, just like the kind
