  • Lenovo reveals Daydream VR headset

YI Horizon VR180 seamlessly integrates with YouTube and Google Photos so viewers can easily activate a VR experience when viewed with Google Cardboard, Daydream, PSVR, and a number of other certified VR viewers.

The Mirage Camera includes 16GB of built-in storage and can be expanded with up to 128GB of additional storage via a microSD card.

The Mirage Solo is powered by WorldSense, a new Google technology that can understand a user's movement without requiring external sensors, according to a Google product page.

Today, Lenovo unveiled the Mirage Solo, the first standalone virtual reality headset for Google Daydream platform. A 5.5-inch display is housed within the headset giving each eye a 1280x1440 "window" into a virtual world. That means you'll get access to services like Netflix (NFLX) VR, YouTube VR, Hulu, HBO GO VR and a number of other VR games and experiences. The Mirage Solo uses the same Daydream controller as the official model to control the virtual world around you. Overall, it's a pretty stark - and not necessarily positive - change from Google's fabric-covered Daydream View, but it also seems created to offer greater stability. Running Android 7.0 Nougat and Google's Daydream OS.

But unless that price is as low as Facebook's (FB) upcoming standalone headset, the Oculus Go, priced at $199 and scheduled for release in early 2018, Lenovo could have serious trouble moving units. The removable battery offers up to two hours of continuous recording per charge. The area that touches your face and forehead is a soft breathable padding with comfort in mind. Because it's integrated into the device, pixels are nearly indiscernible to the degree that we didn't find ourselves trying to readjust the headset to get a better look. The $199 headset will lack the Mirage Solo's positional tracking and more powerful internals, but sits at what may be a much more palatable price point for consumers wanting to flirt with the technology but who aren't quite ready to buy a bulky PC or a game console variant. And, as with the Vive, keep in mind to look out for bargains on VR-ready PCs too, if you don't have one yet.

The Lenovo Mirage Solo VR headset was previously leaked, when it appeared in an FCC filing over Christmas previous year, but now we know much more about it. This is a stereoscopic camera that can capture 13 MP photos and videos in a wide, 180 degree field of view. 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. Stay tuned for more details.
