Mirage Solo

A standalone VR headset that runs on Google’s Daydream VR platform by Lenovo.

Lenovo put two front-facing cameras on the outside, which the headset uses to track movements in six different directions without needing external cameras or lighthouses more expensive PC-based HMDs require. And then on the inside, the Mirage Solo sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a full generation newer than the Snapdragon 821 chip in the Oculus Go, along with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. This gives the Mirage Solo’s a slight edge over the Oculus Go in the specs department, something that becomes immediately apparent as soon as you put on the headset.

Mirage Solo does a fantastic job of delivering high-resolution, low latency visuals. That last part is super important, as quite frequently, the delay between when you move your head and when the headset’s graphics actually respond is what causes VR motion sickness. Too slow and you want to vomit. The motion tracking feels quite accurate too, and thanks to those cameras on the outside, the headset can even warn you if you move your head too much and are at risk of bumping into something in meatspace.
