Lenovo to Officially Launch Daydream VR Headset at CES
Lenovo revealed on December 26, 2017 that it is going to launch standalone VR headset, which is based on Daydream platform of Google.
Google’s mobile VR initiative Daydream, may soon have another VR headset on board. According to the filings of Federal Communications Commission and LetsGoDigital reports, a standalone Lenovo VR headset is on the way called the Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream. The filings don’t reveal too much about the device.
The VR headset is expected to have a 4,000 mAh battery installed. Unlike Google’s Daydream View devices, the Lenovo headset is expected to come with all the necessary components installed. The Mirage Solo has wireless controller for pointing at and interacting with things in a VR space. However, the speed of the processor or field of view is unknown.
According to Virtual and Augmented Reality Market report published by Coherent Market Insights, augmented reality is the integration of digital and real environment in real time, whereas virtual reality creates a digital environment to provide real lifelike experience to the user. From providing a virtual tour of the house to prospect buyers, watching a football game in immersive augmented reality or interacting with doctors remotely are some of the examples which shows the potential of the virtual and augmented reality market. HTC Vive Focus and the Oculus Go are expected to hit the market within the next few months, offering VR at the low- cost for those who don’t want to shell out for a full-fat headset and a gaming PC.
Although HTC was supposedly working on a standalone Daydream headset of its own, the Taiwanese company has since cancelled the plans. Huawei is working on a Daydream-compatible headset of its own but it’s not clear whether it will work as a standalone device or require a smartphone.
