Google Daydream headset launches; News getting a revamp

Google releases VR180 companion app for line of point-and-shoot cameras

According to retailers, the latter's Mirage Camera is shipping relatively soon, alongside the standalone Mirage Solo Daydream headset. Thus, you can lean, duck, and walk in VR.

This launch arrives alongside the release of the Mirage Solo, the first headset on the Daydream VR platform to make use of Google's WorldSense positional tracking system.

We tried out some Mirage Solo experiences, and felt that the WorldSense bubble was is unfortunately small at times, yet carries a ton of potential for future experiences. Support for the VR180 camera is also built in to Google photos so users will be easily able to share captured video with friends and family without them needing a special device.

There are over 350 videogames and apps available for the Lenovo Mirage Solo, with the WorldSense tracking enabling some additional gameplay elements in some titles. The Oculus Go just launched at half that price.

Disney Joke Wasn't Allowed In Deadpool 2
Actor Ryan Reynolds has always been pretty frank about his feelings on 2011's critically-panned Green Lantern film. "I told Ryan. Also, consider that 20th Century Fox ( Deadpool's studio) is now in the midst of being bought by Disney, who also own Marvel.

One of the two new cameras, the Lenovo Mirage VR180, has two 13-megapixel fisheye cameras - giving it an abstract appearance of having eyes. Although, you should probably not walk-that's unsafe in VR. Users will see this come into play with both Google News and Google's VR180 cameras.

In our review of the Camera, we found that the 4K footage was sometimes brilliant but often had inconsistent visual quality, and we were frustrated by the lack of a previewing screen on the back.

Lenovo is asking $400 for the Mirage Solo, which seems like way too much money.
