Just days after launching their ultra-premium ThinkPads, Lenovo’s new standalone Daydream virtual reality headset – the Lenovo Mirage Solo – and the Mirage Camera are now available in Australia.
The Mirage was announced earlier this year at CES; its standalone build allows viewers to experience VR unlike anything before – free from wires, PCs or phones. The device comes with WorldSense motion-tracking technology on Google Daydream’s virtual reality platform, which means you can lean, dodge or duck through space naturally as you move through VR content. Based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 VR platform, the Lenovo Mirage Solo delivers high-quality, immersive experiences.
There’s also a way to make games feel more lifelike with the wireless Daydream controller – whether it’s a tennis racquet, a steering wheel, or whatever fits your chosen app.
You can also create your own VR content and then experience those moments, on demand, with the Lenovo Mirage Camera – a pocket-sized point-and-shoot camera. Its dual 13MP fisheye camera and 180 x 180 degree field of view simplifies the technology needed to capture 3D photos and videos.
Together, the Mirage Solo and the Mirage Camera mean that anyone can make their own VR content in an accessible and fun way. Photos and videos captured on the Lenovo Mirage Camera can be uploaded to and viewed on your personal Google Photos and YouTube accounts.
So get ready to watch that game-winning shot as if you’re right there in the front row. Or go a step further and live-stream your wedding ceremony in 3D or your baby’s first steps so that everyone can be part of it. With the Lenovo Mirage Solo and Mirage Camera, you can do it all!
