Just installed earlier this week, from Oculus Go Google and Lenovo have made their own independent virtual reality (VR) headsets starting today.
The Lenovo Mirage Solo is the first independent VR headset that runs on the platform Google Daydream VR which means it does not require a smartphone. Its biggest highlight is WorldSense, the positional tracking technology that allows you to walk within a virtual world without external sensors.
Mirage Solo's Daydream library has more than 350 experiences to buy, including around 70 using the exclusive WorldSense technology.
We tested some experiences of Mirage Solo, and we felt that the WorldSense bubble was unfortunately small at times, but it carries a lot of potential for future experiences.
] In terms of technology, Mirage Solo has an IPS IPS display of 2,560 x 1,440, 2.5 hours of battery life, 64 GB of storage (plus a microSD slot) and a Snapdragon 835 processor .
As for the price of Lenovo Mirage Solo, the device will cost you $ 399 (around £ 293, AU $ 530).
For comparison, the Oculus Go price of 64 GB is $ 249 / £ 249 / AU $ 369, while the Oculus Rift for PC sells for $ 399 / £ 399.
You can purchase the Lenovo Mirage Solo at Amazon Best Buy Walmart and Lenovo .
Details of the version of the Mirage camera from Lenovo
In addition to the first independent Daydream VR headset, it is also possible to Purchase the Lenovo Mirage camera starting today.
Marketed as the first camera VR180 the Mirage camera uses two 13-megapixel fisheye lenses to shoot 3D-enabled virtual reality, but not a full 360-degree view.
With it, you can shoot virtual reality experiences and then look at them through your Lenovo Mirage Solo.
In our review of the camera, we found that the footage in 4K was sometimes bright but often had inconsistent visual quality, and we were frustrated by the lack of a preview screen in the back part.
The price of the Lenovo Mirage camera is $ 299 (approximately £ 220, AU $ 400), which is comparable to many 360-degree cameras.
You can buy it at Amazon Best Buy or Lenovo . And anyone who knows they want both devices can also choose a Solo + Camera package to get a $ 50 discount on Amazon .
