Everything you need to know about the Mirage Solo

The Mirage Solo supposedly puts everything a user needs for mobile VR in a single device. 

Users don't need a smartphone, PC, or any external sensors.

Supposedly users can just pick it up, put it on, and they're in VR in seconds.

The headset was designed with comfort in mind, and it has a wide field of view and an advanced display that’s optimised for VR. 

It also features WorldSense, a powerful new technology that enables PC-quality positional tracking on a mobile device, without the need for any additional sensors. 

With it, users can duck, dodge and lean, step backwards, forward or side-to-side. 

All of this makes for a more natural and immersive experience, so users really feel like they’re there.

With over 350 games, apps and experiences in the Daydream library, there's tons to see and do. 

WorldSense unlocks new gameplay elements that bring the virtual world to life, and more than 70 of these titles make use of the technology, including Blade Runner: Revelations, Extreme Whiteout, Narrows, BBC Earth Live in VR, Fire Escape, Eclipse: Edge of Light, Virtual Virtual Reality, Merry Snowballs, and Rez Infinite. 

So whether users are a gamer or an explorer, there’s supposedly something for everyone.

Alongside the Mirage Solo, the first VR180 consumer camera has also been revealed, the Lenovo Mirage Camera. 

VR180 lets anyone capture immersive VR content with a point and shoot simplicity. 

Photos and videos taken with the camera supposedly transport users back to the moment of capture with a 180-degree field of view and crisp, three-dimensional imagery.

Users can relive their VR180 memories in the Lenovo Mirage Solo headset. 

And with support for VR180 built into Google Photos, users can supposedly easily share those moments with their friends and family, regardless of what device they have.
