The Lenovo Mirage Solo and Mirage Camera were first unveiled back in January this year. The former is a standalone virtual reality headset that’s powered by Google’s Daydream virtual reality platform. The Lenovo Mirage Camera, billed as the first camera built specifically for VR180 and VR capture in mind, is now available for purchase as well.
The Lenovo Mirage Solo headset will make it easier for people to experience virtual reality through the Daydream platform. That’s because there aren’t a lot of Android-powered handsets out there right now with support for this platform. Since the standalone headset has all of the components it needs to power a VR experience within its body, there’s no need for users to hook up the headset with a smartphone or another device.
The specifications of this headset include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor and a QHD display. It even has support for advanced positional tracking which allows players to walk, lean, etc in virtual reality.
It’s a bit on the expensive side, though. The Lenovo Mirage Solo costs $400 which is double than the Oculus Go, another standalone VR headset that was recently released by Oculus. It’s a similar story for the camera as well which costs $300 but some will feet that it’s a justified price to pay for the first VR180 camera. The nifty camera can be used to capture photos and videos that work in virtual reality.
