This VR-needs glasses no PC and Smartphone

A pair of glasses that works without connecting to a Smartphone or a Computer: in order for Lenovo wants to make it easier in the second quarter of 2018, the entry in the virtual reality (VR). At CES, where on Monday already, HTC unveiled a revised Vive glasses, the company has introduced from China, the Mirage Solo. With this Headset, Lenovo is trying to combine the Strengths of two types of Glasses.

The Mirage Solo is supposed to be wireless and portable, the style is already available VR glasses, into which a Smartphone is inserted. On the other hand, the Headset also offers so-called Positional Tracking, motion capture, yet more expensive, non-mobile VR systems like the Vive and the Oculus Rift is subject to change.

Positional Tracking means that the glasses only detects where the wearer turns his head. The Headset also noticed, if the player tilts the head forward or lean over. In a Mirage-Solo Demo called “Blade Runner: Revelations” could I kneel, for example, to inspect the bottom of the sci-Fi world from the vicinity. It would also be possible, but also, virtual projectiles to Dodge.

>Motion detection, however, has limits. I leaned too far in the vicinity of a different character, the image is blurred and a warning appeared: I should position my original game.

Practically, you could make about a big step in any direction, explained to me later, a staff. Also worth knowing: in Front of obstacles on the ground or against the walls of the Mirage Solo, the Bear warns you to draws you to the best, directly in a safe environment with sufficient free space.

There is no direct Rift or Vive-competitor

Technically, the experiences glasses for the Mirage Solo with Apps for High-End like the Oculus Rift, can’t keep up with this. The Lenovo-glasses uses Google’s Daydream technology, buyers will be able to use, especially Apps, the glasses, on Phone, such as Google’s Daydream View are tailored.

Games for the Mirage Solo alone can not be, therefore, too complex, because they can be controlled only with movements and a small, out of the Daydream View is already well-known hand controller. Remember also: Previous Daydream View games do not support Positional Tracking, because they may be developed without the prospect of this function.

Exciting is how the Mirage Solo is struck against a previously announced direct competitors: Oculus will soon bring the Oculus Go onto the market, a self-sufficient glasses, but without Positional Tracking. The Oculus Go will cost you $ 200, the price of the Mirage Solo is still unknown.

About 2.5 Hours Of Battery Life

Due to their independence of Smartphones, both the Go, as well as the Mirage Solo is one of the biggest problems of mobile VR goggles: the fast heating and discharge of the mobile phone deal. The Solo should have a Lenovo that no temperature problems, your battery should be 2,5 hours with the Nintendo Switch comparable.

In addition to the Solo Lenovo brings the so-called Mirage Camera on the market. It offers WiFi and LTE reception and two 180-degree cameras, which can be used to produce photos, Videos, and live streams for VR glasses or YouTube. Videos on the 16 GB built-in storage, and a MicroSD card, which can later be directly inserted into the Mirage Solo.

180-degree video as the next big thing

The 180-degree images of the Mirage Camera staged Lenovo as the next Mainstream Standard for VR Videos. Many people in the case, it is the clear focus in one direction is easier to make such Videos, it says. Practically, the Format is – even if Lenovo falls, this Association probably miss, among other things, of the adult movies for VR goggles known.

>Also this is often filmed in only one direction, as the action happens in the front of the audience. In addition, the Format helps the film, not even in the picture to show up, what happens in the case of 360-degree images quickly.

Overall, Lenovo’s Mirage Solo made a good first impression, especially for traveling, it could be with the camera attractive, especially as the Headset fits properly, even with regular glasses underneath. Unfortunately, Lenovo has no integrated headphones. Probably it follows, therefore, ultimately, but at least with a headphone cable to the glasses.

What Lenovo has introduced yet

The VR goggles and the camera were the only two new products on the Lenovo press conference. The company also announced a networked screen, the Google Assistant is running.

>Google, for example, suggests a recipe, you can let the ingredients list on the screen. In addition, you can look over the so-called Smart Display YouTube Videos or making video calls. Should cost of the screen, 199 (8-inch) or $ 249 (10 inch). On the market, he will come in the second quarter of this year.
