If you're also interested in creating virtual reality content to play on the Mirage Solo or other existing headsets, the Lenovo Mirage Camera with Daydream is on display at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show too.
The headset comes with its own wireless Daydream controller, acting as a "unique and intuitive extension of your hand", and the combo should cost no more than $400 when it finally goes on sale. Unlike Google's model, most of the pressure is on your forehead when you wear the Mirage Solo, and it remains comfortable enough even when using it for a longer duration. 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. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM, while the lenses provide 110 degrees field of view.
We're now all familiar with VR headsets that you slot a smartphone into, but we're about to be hit by a wave of kit where the smartphone components come built into the device itself, so you can keep your phone in your pocket. Like the Daydream View, you get a simple little motion controller to hold and point with as well. Both devices are expected to be available later this year in Q2 2018.
The headset supports Google's Daydream VR platform, but adds 6-degrees-of-freedom tech to the mix (the Daydream View only supports 3DOF).
Once you have shot your VR video, you will want a headset to watch it on.
During our limited demo, we tried the new Blade Runner: Revelations, an upcoming game that takes full advantage of WorldSense to let you investigate clues and interact with in-world elements by turning your head and walking around.
The Lenovo Mirage Camera will be priced at "under $300".
The Mirage Solo is the first step in fully integrating Daydream into a headset.
More options to get involved with VR experiences could accelerate adoption of this still-nascent technology.
Lenovo's positioning the Mirage Solo as the perfect compliment to its YouTube-focused VR180 Mirage Camera, which it announced separately on Tuesday. All you need is a VR180 camera to shoot and a viewer (like Daydream or Cardboard) to quickly check it out. What's more, the AR image projection technology does have a significant impact on your field of view. Goslin said Disney may also release additional accessories in the future.
So there you have it for this quick look at the Lenovo Mirage Solo and Camera! We don't know that, either.
