We first reported that this unit was on the way when FCC Document leaks last month, and were quite excited at the prospect of FINALLY seeing the Lenovo Standalone VR Headset, as it had been announced during the 2017 Google I/O Conference. The wait is OVER, Friends.
Today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, being held from January 9 – 12, 2018, LENOVO Officially announced the Lenovo Mirage Solo Standalone VR Headset. As we had hoped (and reported back in December), the unit is indeed 6DoF!
The Mirage Solo will run on the Google Daydream Mobile VR platform, which boasts a catalog of over 250 apps and games, including all the Google apps like YouTube VR, Street View, Photos, and Expeditions. Google announced that a VR Game was specifically designed for Lenovo Mirage Solo’s 6DoF capabilities based on Blade Runner 2049 (2017) called Blade Runner: Revelations. If you’ve been reading this blog, then you know we have been very big fans of the Blade Runner VR Experiences & Games.
“We’re working closely with developers to bring new experiences to the platform that take advantage of all these new technologies,” said a Lenovo representative. So far, all the info we have been able to gather is that the unit should be available in Q2 of 2018 and should retail for $399 USD, which compares well to the $199 USD Oculus GO (3DoF).
