At CES in Las Vegas, companies are presenting some of their technology products that will launch throughout the year. The Lenovo manufacturer has introduced a virtual reality glasses with Daydream, Google's high-performance virtual reality. These glasses stand out because they do not require a certified cell phone, which helps reduce the experience.
A few months ago, we told you about Oculus GO and how promising was a virtual reality device that worked independently (and during CES, we know will be manufactured by Xiaomi ). Lenovo raises the ante with a device certified for Daydream.
Daydream, Google's virtual reality platform
Daydream is the new version of Android developed by Google to bring virtual reality to the mobile phones revealed in this I / O 2016
The new Lenovo Mirage does not need a cell phone and works with Daydream
During the year 2016, Google introduced Daydream, a virtual reality platform different from what we already knew in Android. If Google Cardboard stood out as being accessible to any user with a high-end cell phone, Daydream was geared to delivering the best experience at the expense of a compatibility that we could set almost as ridiculous.
According to Google itself only Pixel 2, Pixel, Galaxy S8, Note 8, Mate 9 Pro, Moto Z, Moto Z2 and Asus Zenfone AR are compatible with this virtual reality, discarding the most of mobile phones on the market. If you are interested in this virtual reality, it's your lucky day, since Lenovo presented certified virtual reality glasses to work with Daydream.
These glasses include everything needed to work with the Daydream virtual reality by itself, as they include a screen inside the glasses and all the necessary sensors. Power is provided by the Snapdragon 835 processor along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, expandable by the micro USB ports and USB type C. They also have Bluetooth 5.0 and jack jacks, so the compatibility with headphones of ear is absolute.
With a battery of 4000 mAh Lenovo promises up to 7 hours of use with a single charge, which will also depend on the type of use we are making, since it does not consume the same to watch videos to play. And of course they work with an Android version prepared for high-performance virtual reality.
Lenovo Mirage will not be available until second quarter of 2018 at a price of $ 400 . Not that it is an affordable price (already cost twice as much as the Oculus GO) but are still more affordable than the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, also more versatile than the Playstation VR (which costs a little less, but needs of a Playstation 4).
Can Google have a sense of Virtual Reality?
