Hands on: Lenovo Mirage Solo review

Today, Lenovo unveiled the Mirage Solo, the first standalone virtual reality headset for Google Daydream platform. That, combined with inside-out positional tracking, not only makes Daydream apps and games that are available now even better, but it blasts away the gates that have previously kept mobile VR from being more interactive, like PC users currently enjoy with the HTC Vive.

There's no need for you to connect the Mirage Solo to a powerful PC or phone, and the easy setup requires no wires or external sensors. In 2017 Google promised to release standalone VR kit, and at CES 2018 Lenovo finally delivered. It's completely self-sufficient, all while having as much power as most high-end smartphones.

Lenovo's new Mirage Solo VR has a little of everything. Part of that is due to the use of more advanced technology. The Lenovo Mirage camera and Yi Technology's Horizon VR180 camera will hit stores this spring, and a camera from LG will be announced later this year.

What this means for average users is you have absolute freedom to enjoy VR anywhere.

His strategic affairs ministry has a budget of around $36 million to make counter-plan to tackle the BDS movement. Supporters of the movement say the tactics are a nonviolent way to promote the Palestinian cause.

The Mirage Solo's the first with Google's WorldSense technology, which uses a two-camera array to track your location in three-dimensional space. There are no integrated headphones, but unlike many modern phones, the Mirage Solo at least comes with a traditional headphone jack.

The headset also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a 5.5-inch QHD (2560x1440) display with 6DoF view, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

Moving around the device, one side plays host to a power button and a microSD slot that's handy for loading VR180 videos captured by the Lenovo Mirage Camera. They transition seamlessly to a VR experience when viewed with Cardboard, Daydream, and PSVR, which allow you to view the images stereoscopically in 3-D, where near things look near, and far things appear far. Running Android 7.0 Nougat and Google's Daydream OS. The removable battery offers up to two hours of continuous recording per charge. "We also lined the areas that touch your face and forehead with breathable, insulated contoured padding for maximum comfort".

Lenovo's Mirage camera uses dual-13 megapixel fisheyes cameras and 180- by 180-degree field of view to capture stereoscopic photos and video. VR180 cameras capture photos and video in 3D, but can be viewed and shared in either 2D or 3D. You just mount this thing on your head, with "size accommodations for almost every face shape, visual aid and head proportion", and get transported into a whole new world of gaming and other hypnotic experiences.
