  • Google announces Lenovo Mirage Solo, the first standalone Daydream headset

The Lenovo Mirage Solo is the world's first standalone Daydream VR headset. And, let's face it, Google Daydream isn't exactly the most prolific VR platform out there.

The Mirage Solo packs everything into one powerful, affordable, and easy-to-use device.

Blade Runner: Revelations is a virtual reality experience based on the iconic Blade Runner universe in which users assume the role of Harper, a seasoned blade runner who unravels a twisted replicant plot that threatens the delicate balance of Los Angeles in 2023.

The visual fidelity provided by the wide 110-degree field of view of its 2,560 x 1,440 LCD display was immediately noticeable. Read on for more details about the exciting new WorldSense technology and the full spec sheet.

There is quite a bit of Daydream content now available through Google's VR storefront, the question is whether the Lenovo headset will be popular enough to drive developers to update content for its positional tracking and create wholly new experiences that are only possible with the 6DoF tracking technology. So basically, the Lenovo Mirage Solo VR gets rid of nearly every pain-point when it comes to virtual reality.

Lenovo's Mirage Solo is poised to send the mobile VR scene for a loop. A microSD card slot will allow for expansion by up to a further 256GB.

The headset supports Google's Daydream VR platform, but adds 6-degrees-of-freedom tech to the mix (the Daydream View only supports 3DOF). At the time, an HTC spokesperson told Fast Company that "We still have a great relationship with Google...but [we] will not be bringing a stand-alone device to Western markets on Daydream". The device recharge using a USB-C connector and delivers up to two hours of HD video recording on a single charge, according to the manufacturer. Then, there's a quick-release button for visor adjustments, although Lenovo says it will fit any size head. Also keep an eye out for the optional (but fun) Move controllers, and remember you'll still need a PS4 or PS4 Pro to play it all on.

Other than being standalone, the Mirage Solo's other big selling point is that it's the first all-in-one to run on Google's Daydream. And, as with the Vive, do not forget to look out for bargains on VR-ready PCs too, if you don't have one yet.

Lenovo's Mirage Camera, a VR camera that captures a 180-degree view of your surroundings. Once footage is filmed, users can upload it to Google Photos or YouTube for viewing and sharing, and can watch on a standard browser or on any VR headset. The unit will be wireless and will not require a smartphone: everything you need to experience VR cord-free is packed into the Solo.

Lenovo unveiled the Mirage Solo headset today, which it hopes to ship in the second quarter of this year.
