Hands On: Lenovo's Mirage Solo with Google Daydream VR Headset – CES 2018

Lenovo Mirage Solo Daydream Headset Starts at $450, Supports WorldSense Inside-Out Tracking

We didn't think we'd be saying this, but that's now the entry-level headset for Daydream.

But unlike the Daydream View and many other headsets out there, the Mirage Solo will be able to track movement without the use of external sensors.

VR footage from a 360-degree camera typically feels held away from the action. Along the back, you have the large knob, which allows you to adjust the diameter of the headband. The lightsaber consists of a realistic replica of the handle with a small LED propped on top.

Lenovo is pairing AI and AR with the Glass C220 consisting of a Glass Unit and Pocket Unit that recognises real-life objects using AI technologies. However, most of the hardware available are either of terrible quality or are too cumbersome to use. Similar to VR headsets like the Samsung Gear VR, Disney's headset also relies on a phone for graphics rendering.

Look ma, no phone or wires!

The Lenovo Mirage Solo has both LTE and Wi-Fi-only variants and under the hood, it ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 SoC mated with 2GB RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.

A twisting knob brings the headset around your skull, making it fully adjustable - friendly even to those who wear glasses. That's mainly because Google's approach puts the onus on what's in front of you instead of stitching everything's that around in a single frame.

Complementing the Mirage Solo is a wireless Daydream controller.

The Mirage headset is slated for a second-quarter release.

The visual fidelity provided by the wide 110-degree field of view of its 2,560 x 1,440 LCD display was immediately noticeable.

Cameras embracing the VR180 format are trying to hit a sweet spot offering low cost and convenience while capturing a stereoscopic image for each of your eyes.

It has 20 hours of local video playback. That means you'll get access to services like Netflix (NFLX) VR, YouTube VR, Hulu, HBO GO VR and a number of other VR games and experiences. I will say that I'm pleasantly surprised by my initial viewing.

More options to get involved with VR experiences could accelerate adoption of this still-nascent technology.

Google's new cameras are meant to address another handicap.

The Mirage has three simple operating modes: photo, video, and live broadcasting. It has depth, but the 180-degree field of view feels very, very not VR-things and people fade in and out of the frame as they enter the field of view.

Once you have shot your VR video, you will want a headset to watch it on. Just point, shoot and voila! The Mirage Solo will have a suggested retail price of $449.99 and the Mirage Camera a suggested price of $299.99.
