Google and Lenovo unveil first standalone Daydream VR headset

Google and Lenovo unveil first standalone Daydream VR headset

Lenovo used this week's CES in Las Vegas to highlight several aspects of their 2018 product and service lineup in the augmented reality and virtual reality spaces.

Today, Lenovo unveiled the Mirage Solo, the first standalone virtual reality headset for Google Daydream platform. With a new motion tracking feature called WorldSense, the Mirage Solo will allow users to experience the virtual environments as if they are truly there.

The Mirage Solo packs numerous same hardware specs as a high-end smartphone, including a processing chip, a high-resolution display, memory, internal storage, external storage, cameras and a massive battery. Neither Google nor Lenovo have announced the resolution of the headset's display, though Qualcomm's chip supports up to 1440p, like what you'd find in a phone with a quad-HD display.

To go with the Mirage Solo, Lenovo also announced a new virtual reality camera, the Mirage Camera. The camera will be able to capture VR videos in 180 degrees, which can then be played on the Mirage Solo and other Daydream devices.

MSRP on the base model will apparently be around $300 Dollars, with a release date around the same time as the Mirage Solo.

San Antonio Spurs: Approaching the Lakers and the LaVar Ball chaos
It's just, can we make it really interesting, for no apparent reason. " Luke doesn't have control of the team no more", Ball said. One month later, LaVar pulled LaMelo, a junior, out of high school so he could home school and prepare him for UCLA.

Lenovo's Mirage camera will be available in the spring, along with a camera from Yi Technology, the Yi Horizon.

Aside from the VR headset, Google and Lenovo also debuted the new Lenovo Mirage Camera, which also comes with Daydream technology.

But in the meantime, Google is running a contest in which would-be VR videographers can submit a story idea concerning "a special memory you want to capture to relive or share with those you love". "The resulting imagery is far more immersive than what you get with a traditional camera", Bavor says.

Designed specifically with the Mirage Solo in mind is Lenovo's Mirage Camera, a VR180 camera featuring dual 13 MP fisheye lenses, and integrated features like direct uploading to YouTube or Google Photos.
