Daydream, on the other hand, seems to have been a huge success for Google, as it is now partnering with Lenovo to manufacture a standalone Daydream VR headset, the Lenovo Mirage Solo.

However, the Mirage Solo also improves on the Daydream concept with Google's WorldSense cameras on the front, which grant the headset six degrees of freedom for more in-depth gaming interactions. It sports 4 gigabytes (GB) of random access memory (RAM) and 64 GB of storage for apps and multimedia content, with SD card slot to expand the storage to up to 256 GB. The device's inside-out positional tracking technology will be able to track the user's position in space through built-in tracking cameras and sensors.

To go with the Mirage Solo, Lenovo also announced a new virtual reality camera, the Mirage Camera.

Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE) Short Interest Up 19.3% in December
After $0.67 actual EPS reported by Pfizer Inc . for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts -16.42% negative EPS growth. The market capitalization (Stock Price Multiply by Total Number of Outstanding Shares) for the company is reported at $217.51B.

The headset marks a major milestone for Google's virtual reality efforts as it's the first wireless headset that doesn't depend on a Daydream-compatible smartphone to use, giving it the potential to reach a much wider audience than the Daydream View headsets. Your two eyes will get to try Lenovo's devices in the second quarter of this year.

It is also being claimed that the standalone VR headset will be able to deliver up to 7 hours of usage time on a single charge. The controller is a lot like Google's Daydream VR controller and serves the same goal.

While there are differences in specs for each device, the gist is the same: Google wants consumers to think of their VR cameras just like they do a traditional point-and-shoot, except instead of only still photos, they can capture 3D video and images.
