Engadget Review

Lenovo’s Mirage Solo is a new kind of self-contained VR headset, and despite some quirks it gets a lot right out of the gate. The addition of WorldSense motion tracking and some clever internal design touches make the Mirage a more powerful, more flexible option than alternatives like the Oculus Go. The strength of the first batch of WorldSense-compatible apps leaves us cautiously optimistic, too. The thing is, at $400 the Mirage Solo costs far more than entry-level headsets and about the same as higher-end tethered options like the Oculus Rift. With the Mirage, Lenovo and Google charted a new path, but it’s not clear right now who this is for.
