Lenovo debuts the Mirage Solo, its standalone Daydream VR headset

Google unveils Mirage Solo VR headset

Lenovo's Mirage Camera, a VR camera that captures a 180-degree view of your surroundings. At the moment, this headset is the lone WorldSense headset in existence, and without any new partnership announcements, it will stay that way for a bit.

It'll be available from Q2 this year for an RRP of $449.99 (around £332 at today's exchange rate, but we're waiting for official United Kingdom pricing).

All we know is that it will be "affordable", apparently.

The Mirage Solo will cost below $400 when it goes on sale in Q2, though an exact price is yet to be confirmed.

Google has announced a few new products made by its partners and one of them is the Lenovo Mirage Solo.

WorldSense is Google's positional tracking system that does not require external sensors to track the user's movement. That means you can duck, jump, and peek around corners to really feel like you are immersed in a new world, without needing additional wires. 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. The 256x1440 display offers a 110-degree filed of view, and the whole headset weighs in at 1.42 pounds. That headset is retailing for around US$600. 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. The Mirage Solo uses the same Daydream controller as the official model to control the virtual world around you. The controller can also serve as an in-game controllable object (Lenovo gives the example of its being used as a baseball bat or a steering wheel for racing games). There's now plenty of decent content and apps on Google's Daydream platform, and if you're looking for a relatively cheap and simple way into VR, this could be it. And since these cameras have WiFi built-in, shipping those captured media files to Google Photos or YouTube is relatively easy. Lenovo promises that a suite of apps will be coming soon to expand the platform, though that will happen closer to the device's release in the second quarter. Running Android 7.0 Nougat and Google's Daydream OS.

Blade Runner: Revelations is a virtual reality experience based on the iconic Blade Runner universe in which users assume the role of Harper, a seasoned blade runner who unravels a twisted replicant plot that threatens the delicate balance of Los Angeles in 2023.

The headset marks a major milestone for Google's virtual reality efforts as it's the first wireless headset that doesn't depend on a Daydream-compatible smartphone to use, giving it the potential to reach a much wider audience than the Daydream View headsets.
