KXIP vs KKR Live Score

A VR headset, including even a Google Cardboard headset, is all that's required to experience in VR so your friends and family can step into your memories and look around like they were there. 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.

Lenovo also launches the Lenovo Mirage Camera with Daydream, which can capture 180 degrees of VR video to watch on the Solo.

The Mirage Solo is nearly like the lovechild of the PSVR headset and the Google Daydream View, combining their sheer simplicity in design with impressive functionality that enhances the VR experience during marathon sessions.

Of course, with its mobile-level performance, headsets like this can't compete with the graphics quality of the likes of the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.

So the two cameras they announced today are the Lenovo Mirage Camera with Daydream and the Yi Horizon VR180 Camera.

The Mirage Solo is definitely bigger than a regular VR headset, but is still relatively compact when you consider all that it's packing inside. The field of view isn't as wide as something like the PIMAX VR headset, but it's pretty respectable for Daydream. 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.

Lots of cameras launched in the previous year that record 360 degrees of action. Unlike most VR cameras, which film a full 360-degree view, the Mirage only captures a 180-degree view. The dual-lens shooter captures stereoscopic video, so you can view it in a Daydream View or similar headset, and captures 5.7K video for 2D and 3D playback. A tripod thread is built into the bottom, so it is obvious that Lenovo wants you to take this with you wherever you go. The Mirage Camera is powered by a Snapdragon 626 processor and helps capture your world in virtual reality, and can wirelessly upload your VR content to share with others via Google Photos and YouTube (it supports the new VR180 video format). The Mirage Solo VR headset is priced at $449, while the Mirage Camera will set you back $229.

Lenovo hopes to start selling the Mirage Solo VR headset for "under $400" in Q2 of this year.
