A VR headset, including even a Google Cardboard headset, is all that's required to experience in VR so your friends and family can step into your memories and look around like they were there. There's now plenty of decent content and apps on Google's Daydream platform, and if you're looking for a relatively low-cost and simple way into VR, this could be it. The Lenovo Mirage Solo combines an all-in-one VR headset - without the need of a smartphone or tethered to a PC - with the inside-out tracking technology on Google Daydream.

Lenovo (OTCPK:LNVGF, OTCPK:LNVGY) unveils the Lenovo Mirage Solo, the first standalone Google (GOOG, GOOGL) Daydream VR headset.

Lenovo Mirage Solo users will be the first to experience the full potential of motion-tracking technology, called WorldSense, on Google's Daydream virtual reality platform.

The Mirage Solo is definitely bigger than a regular VR headset, but is still relatively compact when you consider all that it's packing inside.

The visual fidelity provided by the wide 110-degree field of view of its 2,560 x 1,440 LCD display was immediately noticeable. That means you can duck, jump, and peek around corners to really feel like you are immersed in a new world, without needing additional wires. If it's not entirely obvious, it's a camera that's made for capturing 360-degree video, which is flawless for viewing in virtual reality. The controller can also serve as an in-game controllable object (Lenovo gives the example of its being used as a baseball bat or a steering wheel for racing games).

In other words, whereas the Daydream View can tell when you move your head to the left and right, the Mirage Solo understands when you're crouching, jumping, and moving forwards and backwards too. A tripod thread is built into the bottom, so it is obvious that Lenovo wants you to take this with you wherever you go.

Lenovo said that it prioritized comfort when designing the Mirage Solo headset.

Everything comes with a price, and the Mirage Solo is expect to come in under $400 (about £300, AU$500).

Pricing isn't finalized, but Lenovo tells VentureBeat that the Mirage Solo will cost under $400 in the US and the Mirage Camera will cost under $300.
