CES 2018: Lenovo's VR180 Mirage Camera Starts Under $300

1000x1000

That's notable because of the much cheaper Oculus Go, the standalone VR headset made by Facebook and Xiaomi that is supposed to go on sale early this year. To do this, Google and its partners built special, easy to use hardware that is now being announced at CES 2018.

The Mirage Solo is the first step in fully integrating Daydream into a headset.

The Mirage Solo will enter an increasingly crowded field of tech companies seeking to enhance the VR experience and bring it to the enterprise this year. Part of that is due to the use of more advanced technology.

There is quite a bit of Daydream content now available through Google's VR storefront, the question is whether the Lenovo headset will be popular enough to drive developers to update content for its positional tracking and create wholly new experiences that are only possible with the 6DoF tracking technology. In short, it lets you move around and explore your virtual environments with just the headset on, no need to set up a room specifically for virtual reality, thanks to built-in tracking cameras and sensors.

WSU online business programs receive US News & World Report honors

Korea seeks to discuss divided families, easing tensions at inter-Korean talks
The Trump administration has agreed to delay upcoming springtime drills with South Korea until after the Olympic Games. The annual event helps maintain stability on the Korean Peninsula. "We will listen to what North Korea will say".

What this means for average users is you have absolute freedom to enjoy VR anywhere. So basically, the Lenovo Mirage Solo VR gets rid of nearly every pain-point when it comes to virtual reality. "This gives you an ergonomic headset that looks and feels like something you want to wear". The headset itself houses A Qualcomm 835 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard memory, a seven-hour battery, and a 2560 x 1440 LCD screen. On-board storage is provided by microSD and can be expanded up to 256GB.

The problem, though, is that, like other VR headsets, there still isn't a killer app for Daydream VR. Running Android 7.0 Nougat and Google's Daydream OS. Battery life is a claimed two hours of continuous recording and the device is charged via a USB-C port.

As for wearing the device, Lenovo thought of comfort and the overall fit first, then everything else. There's also some breathable padding in areas where the headset touches the skin, though it remains to be seen how fast that will become a grime depository. Adjustable visors and dials accommodates virtually every face shape, head size, and also accommodates various visual aids (such as glasses). The Lenovo Mirage Solo combines an all-in-one VR headset - without the need of a smartphone or tethered to a PC - with the inside-out tracking technology on Google Daydream. Once footage is filmed, users can upload it to Google Photos or YouTube for viewing and sharing, and can watch on a standard browser or on any VR headset.
