Lenovo Debuts Standalone Mirage Solo Daydream VR Headset, Mirage Daydream VR Camera

10 January 2018

To learn more, please visit www.yitechnology.com/180-vr-camera, and to learn more about YI Technology's other VR offerings go to yitechnology.com/yi-360-vr-camera and yitechnology.com/yi-halo-vr-camera. The Mirage Camera is no headset, though it might look like a collapsed Google Cardboard.

Showcased in Las Vegas for the ongoing CES 2018 ahead of a commercial launch sometime "in the second quarter this year", the affordable "self-sufficient" VR device "combines the simplicity of an all-in-one headset" with the "immersive experience of motion-tracking technology".

Google also announced two VR180 cameras made by Lenovo and Yi Technologies which shoot 4K 180-degree video. These also sport f/2.1 apertures, so they aren't going to give you insane depth of field like some of the other smartphones on the market right now, but you will get some crisp images.

Monaco don't think they can hold onto Arsenal, Liverpool target
According to The Daily Mail , Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in signing Lemar from Monaco this month.

Powering this experience is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 VR platform, which includes 2017's hottest smartphone SoC paired with 4GB of RAM.

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. It does also support LTE, although Lenovo was quiet about which carriers would support the Mirage Camera (based on the bands supported, likely AT&T and/or Verizon - there's no band 12 here for T-Mobile).

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.

Stars to walk Golden Globes red carpet with activists
In keeping with the spirit of the empowering Time's Up movement, eight actresses will take female activists as their plus-ones to the Golden Globes Sunday night.

There are still no details about the teased LG VR180 camera. You've also got one-button live streaming on board and a touch screen. Is VR180 something you could get behind? Underneath the flap on the end, there is a micro SD card slot, and a USB-C port.

Both forms of tracking eliminate the need for the kind of clunky sensors and cameras used by the likes of the Rift, Vive and Sony's (SNE) Playstation VR headsets. There will also be a cellular-connected variant of the Camera, but pricing was not provided. Which again, makes it lighter weight and since it is already pretty thin, it can slide right into your pocket without looking awkward - unlike most 360-degree cameras on the market right now. The Mirage Camera with Daydream, on the other hand, might have a price tag that's a bit harder to swallow at $300. Because it's integrated into the device, pixels are nearly indiscernible to the degree that we didn't find ourselves trying to readjust the headset to get a better look.
