The Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream is a stand-alone virtual reality headset with a 110-degree field of view. The Solo does not require a PC or smartphone and is capable of working wirelessly to provide an immersive experience complete with motion tracking technology and utilising Google’s Daydream virtual reality platform.
In conjunction with the launch of the Lenovo VR headset the company is also making available Lenovo Mirage Camera also equipped with Daydream technology enabling users to capture their own virtual reality 180 degree video, which can then be watched on the Lenovo Mirage Solo headset. The motion tracking technology included in the Mirage Solo takes the form of WorldSense designed to enable users to explore virtual reality environments.
Internal components of the Lenovo Mirage Solo VR headset include Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which is supported by 4 GB of RAM allowing the Mirage Solo to handle the most demanding Daydream virtual reality experiences, says Lenovo.
