Hands-on with the Lenovo Mirage Solo and Camera with Daydream

TODO alt text

The Lenovo Mirage Solo is expected to be available starting in the second quarter this year. That dichotomy represents the two options that consumers have had for VR experiences thus far; either they can sandwich their smartphone in a cardboard or plastic viewer, or break the bank on buying a high-end PC and peripheral attachment like Oculus or HTC Vive. It projected that only a meager two per cent of the US population would have adopted smartphone-based VR by this year, and about one per cent would have adopted more dedicated high-end VR headsets.

The device also features Google WorldSense, which is a new positional tracking technology that claims to provide PC quality tracking without extra sensors. It is powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor, designed for VR experiences, with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in UFS storage. So basically, the Lenovo Mirage Solo VR gets rid of nearly every pain-point when it comes to virtual reality. The headset is the first to use Google's WorldSense technology, which enables the headset to track where you are in a room without using external sensors.

If you find that you're missing out on Amazon's Lightning deals, which run for just a few hours and offer limited stock, we'd recommend signing up for Amazon's 30 day free trial of Prime, which will get you access to deals 30 minutes before everyone else.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce Suffered Concussion vs. Titans
He led all tight ends with 83 receptions this season and had five catches for 84 yards in the first half of Saturday's game. What looked to be yet another head injury marred Saturday's AFC wild-card game between the Chiefs and Titans .

VR is more affordable than ever before - but that doesn't stop potential purchasers from holding out for sales and special deals as the tech giants make the push to get virtual reality into the mainstream. Pictures taken with the Lenovo Mirage Camera are still pretty immersive, and actually look pretty good. Around to the other end, you have your volume controls and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Or a 2D version can be viewed on a typical mobile or desktop screen. When Google teased both cameras in the past, it said they will be "as easy to use as point-and-shoot cameras, for around the same price". Google says that YI will have a camera out this Spring (seen above). The camera features a dual 13 MP fisheye camera and a 180 x 180 degree field of view. Meanwhile, other companies like Z Cam and Panasonic are offering VR180 devices aimed at professionals. Read on for more details about the exciting new WorldSense technology and the full spec sheet.

Of course, Lenovo has also included Google's Daydream remote, a necessary accessory for interaction within games and apps.

Despite being the cheapest of the VR sets on the market right now, we've seen impressive discounts and bundles for the PSVR headset, cameras and games.
