Lenovo’s Mirage Solo, a standalone VR headset in the Daydream app ecosystem, has had an official release date and price for some time now: May 5th and $400. Pre-orders are now live for both the VR headset and Lenovo’s VR180 camera.

You can pre-order Lenovo Mirage Solo on Amazon for $400 with a release date of May 6th.

There’s also a bundle featuring the Mirage Solo headset and Mirage Solo VR180 camera for $700, although the bundle doesn’t provide any discount off the combined prices; the camera costs $300 on its own.

The Mirage Solo is a standalone VR headset, meaning it has everything on board for VR, and doesn’t rely on a docked smartphone or host PC. Based on Google’s Daydream Android VR ecosystem, the headset’s biggest claim to fame is its 6 degrees of freedom (6DoF) tracking, which allows for room-scale positional tracking.

Much like Vive Focus, which was previously intended as a Daydream headset before HTC decided to use Viveport Mobile and release it first in China, tracking is done through the headset’s front-facing cameras, requiring no external sensors for room-scale experiences.

We went hands-on with Lenovo Mirage Solo back at CES 2018 in January, and while the system clearly has strong fundamentals, the price point puts it in a weird segment that may ward off many. The hands-on article offers a comprehensive look at the headset, so it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re still on the fence.

    Pretty expensive. But will work well if u don’t have a capable PC.

    • jj

      yes, the whole point of these smaller headsets coming out are that they are self contained and dont ever need a pc. for future reference, thats what standalone headset means!

      • jean thompson

        Yes, I know….i was making a comment about the price…and how it’s not a bad deal if u don’t have a computer…. because a VR pc runs $800+ …. but I think u knew that.

    If this means you can have positional tracking inside Daydream Apps then I can see a bit of market for this HMD, especially after some price drops :)

    • JJ

      yeah about that, its 6 dof for the headset but the controller is only 3dof, so the controller it floats at a fixed point in front of your chest and only rotates with your hand it does not move around. This kinda sucks imo
