Lenovo Just Released the 180-degree VR Mirage Camera

Google’s VR180 solution was announced well over a year ago, as a collaboration between YouTube and Google’s Daydream VR division, but only last week the first camera to support it hit the shelves. Lenovo Mirage Camera went on sale for $300.

The Mirage Camera has two 13MP fisheye lenses that record super-wide-angle 3D footage and can store images and videos locally, though Google and Lenovo did manage to connect it with both Google Photos and YouTube.

The design is minimal, featuring a camera screw for tripods, a power button, shutter button and a function button that toggles through photos, videos and live stream functions.

The Mirage was designed to be easy to shoot and view even for casual users. It’s a solid compromise between elegance and usability, if you’d like.

Jeff Meredith, Lenovo’s senior vice president, has said about the camera that “the vision from the beginning was, life has a lot of moments that we can’t be there for. But there could be ways to share the real experience.”
