It will be the first such product in the market

As action camera-maker GoPro launched its first 360-degree camera Fusion in India recently, Chinese technology giant Lenovo is all set to add a new dimension to the product with plans to bring its virtual reality 360-degree camera Mirage to India. Lenovo will also be launching the Mirage VR headset.

A senior Lenovo executive told BusinessLine that the company is working out details to bring the two devices to India as Lenovo builds its portfolio of high-end devices in the Indian market.

Mirage would be the first VR camera to enter the market as consumers look to go beyond their smartphone cameras for a different way to capture their moments.

The Mirage Camera is the simplest way to capture life’s special moments in virtual reality (VR) video and photos — everything you see, it sees so you can relive life later as if you were in a time capsule. So imagine you miss going to the IPL final due to a last minute assignment at work; but if your friends are there, they can record the whole match with the VR camera and you can play it back with a VR headset. This way, you can get to replay the match later and also actually experience it.

Its VR180 format integrates easily with YouTube and Google Photos, so sharing with friends and family is a breeze. Live stream to loved ones, capture, share, and relive like never before.

The Lenovo Mirage Camera lets you live-stream any video, from weddings and live concerts to your late-night YouTube vlog. Live-streaming with the Lenovo Mirage Camera fuses the immersive nature of stereoscopic 3D with a 180-degree field of view. You can stream these live moments in either 4K, 1440p, or 1080p (depending on your WiFi bandwidth).

Designed to be easy to carry, the Mirage Camera sports a light and compact frame made for day trips and travel excursions. At just over four inches long and two inches tall, and weighing 139 grams, you can slip it into your pocket and take it anywhere you go.

All VR content created on the Mirage Camera can be viewed and shared on the Mirage Solo with Daydream, the world’s first standalone Daydream headset.

The devices are expected to hit the Indian market before the end of the holiday season. And while the company is still working on its pricing, we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
