Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream VR headset launched at CES 2018

But this announcement gives us a fuller picture of the product. It weighs 645 grams, which makes it one of the heaviest mainstream VR headsets - the same weight as Samsung's Odyssey, and more than the combined 404-gram weight of a Daydream View with a Pixel 2. The result is an immersive 110-degrees VR experience anywhere that blurs the lines between reality. The first two units out of the gate are the Lenovo Mirage Camera and YI Horizon VR180 Camera.

More options to get involved with VR experiences could accelerate adoption of this still-nascent technology. Developed to leverage Google's new VR180 format, the stereoscopic, 3-D camera gives users an easy way to capture high-resolution, immersive video that lets anyone who views it immediately transport to new and fantastic places. Combining six degrees of freedom and real-time body and head-tracking technology.

With inside-out positional tracking technology, aka WorldSense, you can move around and explore virtual environments very naturally, leaning, dodging and ducking through space. The headset has everything you need, and WorldSense understands the world around you.

On traditional VR headsets, this happens with huge sensors throughout your "VR room" or living room.

Essentially, there's a flagship smartphone packed inside of the Mirage Solo. Today, Google announced a Blade Runner game that you can play on the Solo.

We're now all familiar with VR headsets that you slot a smartphone into, but we're about to be hit by a wave of kit where the smartphone components come built into the device itself, so you can keep your phone in your pocket. Running Android 7.0 Nougat and Google's Daydream OS. The removable battery offers up to two hours of continuous recording per charge.

As for wearing the device, Lenovo thought of comfort and the overall fit first, then everything else. "We also lined the areas that touch your face and forehead with breathable, insulated contoured padding for maximum comfort". You'll also enjoy adjustable dials and size accommodations for any face shape and visual aids like glasses. The images captured in this way can be viewed with the Mirage Solo and other Daydream platform devices. And, as with the Vive, do not forget to look out for bargains on VR-ready PCs too, if you don't have one yet.

Lenovo's Mirage Camera, a VR camera that captures a 180-degree view of your surroundings. VR180 cameras capture photos and video in 3D, but can be viewed and shared in either 2D or 3D.

So when can you get one and for how much?

The Mirage headset is slated for a second-quarter release. Most often, viewers stay facing forward.
