  • CES 2018 Google and YI Technology Unveil YI Horizon VR180 Camera

Google 's first standalone virtual reality ( VR ) headset is here, courtesy of Lenovo: The two companies unveiled the Mirage Solo headset, which runs on Google 's Daydream VR platform and is being built by Lenovo, at CES in Las Vegas Tuesday. VR180 cameras, by contrast, capture a greater sense of immersive depth as there's more space within the captured file dedicated to the core of the action. All you need is a VR180 camera to shoot and a viewer (like Daydream or Cardboard) to quickly check it out. It's completely self-sufficient, all while having as much power as most high-end smartphones.

Lenovo is making a big deal about the Mirage VR camera's point-and-shoot simplicity.

The Mirage Solo comes with high quality lenses with a 110 degree field of view, which should keep everything nice and sharp while minimizing the screen-door effect. Part of that is due to the use of more advanced technology.

Bafta Film Awards 2018: who missed out on a nomination?
The Shape of Water received 12 nominations on Tuesday, the most of any film, including the coveted best film award. Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson both received nominations for supporting actor .

The Mirage Solo is powered by WorldSense, a new Google technology that can understand a user's movement without requiring external sensors, according to a Google product page.

What this means for average users is you have absolute freedom to enjoy VR anywhere. Today, Google announced a Blade Runner game that you can play on the Solo.

Powering this experience is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 VR platform, which includes 2017's hottest smartphone SoC paired with 4GB of RAM.

The duo were tied together in way where their backs were facing each other and they had to pick the flags and put in other pot. Puneesh Sharma started his speech talking about the struggle of a commoner in Bigg Boss 11 than that of a celebrity.

The Mirage Solo's smooth plastic exterior, which sports an adjustable head strap, houses hardware powerful enough to drive VR apps and games.

The camera has 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot to increase this by up to 128GB. The field of view isn't as wide as something like the PIMAX VR headset, but it's pretty respectable for Daydream.

Outside of that it appears as though the standalone and phone-based versions of Daydream VR will run the same software. The removable battery offers up to two hours of continuous recording per charge. Breathable, insulated, and contoured padding around the areas that touch your face is designed for comfort. That way you'll look good and feel good while enjoying VR for 5-7 hours at a time if you'd like. Along with this device, Lenovo has launched the Lenovo Mirage Camera with Daydream technology to let the user capture their own VR video in a broad 180 degrees and then watch it on Lenovo Mirage Solo. Relying heavily on Google's YouTube, the VR180 format is focused on reducing the barrier of entry to creating VR content and sharing it with the world. Is VR180 something you could get behind?
