The Lenovo Mirage Solo, the first standalone virtual reality headset that runs Google's Daydream, alongside the Lenovo Mirage Camera, are both are available for purchase today.
These devices work both separately and together. The headset is priced at $400, while the camera is $300.
The Mirage Solo doesn't need a smartphone, PC, or any external sensors in order to operate. Just pick it up, put it on, and you're in VR in seconds.
The headset has a wide field of view and an advanced display that's optimized for VR. It also features WorldSense, a new technology that enables PC-quality positional tracking on a mobile device, without the need for any additional sensors. With it, you can duck, dodge and lean, step backward, forward or side-to-side.
Google's Daydream library includes over 350 games and apps. WorldSense unlocks new gameplay elements that bring the virtual world to life, and more than 70 of these titles make use of the technology, including Blade Runner: Revelations, Extreme Whiteout, Narrows, BBC Earth Live in VR, Fire Escape, Eclipse: Edge of Light, Virtual Virtual Reality, Merry Snowballs, and Rez Infinite.
The thing is, at $400 the Mirage Solo costs far more than entry-level headsets and about the same as higher-end options like the Oculus Rift.
Alongside the Mirage Solo, Google worked with Lenovo to develop the first VR180 consumer camera, the Lenovo Mirage Camera. VR180 lets anyone capture VR content with point and shoot simplicity. Photos and videos taken with the camera transport you back to the moment of capture with a 180 degree field of view and three-dimensional imagery.
