Lenovo debuts the Mirage Solo, its standalone Daydream VR headset

Lenovo Mirage Solo is a standalone VR headset Daydream capable
       By John Hoff

The company recently unveiled its Mirage Solo headset, the first all-in-one, Google Daydream-compatible VR headset.

The Lenovo Mirage camera and Yi Technology's Horizon VR180 camera are expected to be available beginning in the second quarter this year.

VR footage from a 360-degree camera typically feels held away from the action.

What do you guys think?

Look ma, no phone or wires! The smaller one's back has a gray rubbery texture, while the bigger one has a classy bamboo paneling. That means you can expect smooth rendering when exploring your virtual vistas with minimal lag. WorldSense lets user move around and explore their virtual environments.

Lenovo's standalone Daydream headset is called the Mirage Solo. The fact that the headset provides almost perfect isolation from light also plays into this gain in immersion. Today at CES, it's announced an expansion of the platform by working with OEM partners. We've featured countless of VR headsets already (i.e. Homido, Speck Pocket VR, Pocket VR with CandyShell Grip, Samsung Gear) but we prefer those standalone VR headsets like the Oculus GO and IDEALENS K2. There is an LTE version as well. However, later Google and HTC confirmed the cancellation of plans.

Daydream is Google's platform for devices which are VR ready and deliver immersive experiences. The images captured in this way can be viewed with the Mirage Solo and other Daydream platform devices. There is a screw for tripods, a shutter button, a power button, and a function button to toggle between photo, video and live streaming as well. It has depth, but the 180-degree field of view feels very, very not VR-things and people fade in and out of the frame as they enter the field of view. You can also change its functionality from app to app. For example, Lenovo says that you can use it as a baseball bat or a steering wheel in certain virtual reality scenarios. Just point, shoot and voila! This is a stereoscopic camera that can capture 13 MP photos and videos in a wide, 180 degree field of view.

"VR180 cameras are simple and designed for anyone to use, even if they've never tried VR before".

Lenovo has officially revealed the Mirage Solo, its standalone Daydream-powered VR headset. I'm particularly hopeful about the battery life, and am excited about expanding the onboard memory via a microSD card. These videos and photos can be stored in the internal storage of the Lenovo Mirage Camera. Leveraging on Google Daydream, the Mirage Solo headset also features WorldSense, the motion-tracking technology that allows for incredibly immersive VR experiences without being tethered to a PC.
