Lenovo Debuts Standalone Mirage Solo Daydream VR Headset, Mirage Daydream VR Camera

10 Enero 2018

In the stock demos we've seen from Lenovo, this rings true: the sense of depth in the party scene (above) feels truly immersive, almost like being there. And as there's no screen or finder on such a camera - it's not needed, as you're capturing everything top-to-bottom and left-to-right in front of you - it's super easy to use. I played a snowboarding game that called on you to stand up to play, and then jump and duck for real when you ran into obstacles. It does also support LTE, although Lenovo was quiet about which carriers would support the Mirage Camera (based on the bands supported, likely AT&T and/or Verizon - there's no band 12 here for T-Mobile).

The Mirage headset is slated for a second-quarter release. A 5.5-inch display is housed within the headset giving each eye a 1280x1440 "window" into a virtual world. Powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor, with 4GB also in tow, the Lenovo Mirage Solo provides an industry-standard 110-degree field of view, promising a solid seven hours of battery life between charges. Around to the other end, you have your volume controls and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Like the Daydream View, you get a simple little motion controller to hold and point with as well. Along with this device, Lenovo has launched the Lenovo Mirage Camera with Daydream technology to let the user capture their own VR video in a broad 180 degrees and then watch it on Lenovo Mirage Solo.

Lenovo's positioning the Mirage Solo as the perfect compliment to its YouTube-focused VR180 Mirage Camera, which it announced separately on Tuesday.

The Mirage Solo requires neither PC tethering (like the HTC Vive and Facebook's (NASDAQ:FB) Oculus Rift) nor smartphone (like the traditional Daydream and Samsung's Gear VR).

More manufacturers will be bringing V180 cameras to the market throughout 2018.

Google's official standalone Daydream View VR headset has yet to make its way to consumers.

While this short demo didn't let us mess around fully with the environment, it's clear that the newfound freedom that WorldSense brings is immense for mobile VR. Professional creators will get the Z Cam K1 Pro as well. They can't provide you with a passthrough image of nearby walls, but can warn you when you're about to run into something. A first for the Daydream platform, the Mirage Solo can function standalone, meaning it doesn't need a smartphone tether by cord or Bluetooth. Video can be uploaded from the device itself, so there is no need to rely on a connected smartphone to send your videos to YouTube.
