Indeed, the Mirage Solo actually has six degrees of freedom, letting you dodge enemy fire and duck behind virtual barricades like you could with an Oculus Rift or a HTC Vive. You've also got one-button live streaming on board and a touch screen. In addition to the headset, Lenovo is also bundling a wireless Daydream controller, as well as a bonus free VR experience set in the Blade Runner world. It's a pocket sized 3D camera fitted with two 13MP fish-eye cameras, each with 180 degree field of view, for recording not just photos, but VR movies too. "We're excited to see what consumers and creators are able to create and bring to virtual reality".

The Mirage Solo is equipped with a QHD display (2560 x 1440), which rivals a Samsung Gear VR outfitted with a Samsung Galaxy S8+ (2960 x 1440). Once it becomes available, it'll be very interesting to see how it compares to other VR headsets on the market since it's one of the first standalone VR headsets in the market. Then, you tighten it by turning a ratcheting wheel at the back.

Essentially, there's a flagship smartphone packed inside of the Mirage Solo.

In a bid to reach out to a large segment of buyers, Chinese multinational technology company Lenovo launched three new products here to bring tech advancement in the fields of tablet/PC, Virtual Reality (VR) and smart home devices.

"It's based on years of investment in simultaneous localization and mapping, and it enables PC-quality positional tracking on a mobile device without the need for any additional external sensors", Google's Clay Bavor explained.

Lenovo said that it prioritized comfort when designing the Mirage Solo headset. Lenovo says it gives users the flexibility and productivity of a Windows 10 S laptop with the always on, always connected mobility of a smartphone.

Also revealed at CES in Las Vegas today (January 9), the Mirage Solo complies with Google's Daydream VR standards and offers a 110-degree view wherever you look. I'm also happy to learn that you can cast the content you're experiencing in the Mirage Solo to a compatible television so everyone can get in on the fun. A 2,200 mAh battery promises two hours of general usage with charging over USB-C. "WorldSense tracking and Mirage Solo'shigh-performancee graphics mean that the objects you see will stay fixed in place just like in the real world, no matter which way you tilt or move your head". There is your basic lightsaber combat against a number of enemies, including Kylo Ren and Darth Vader; a strategic combat game allows you to command troops to fight against the Empire as they fight on your living room floor; Holochess is, well, Holochess as known from the franchise.
