While Lenovo is gradually refocusing its mixed reality ambitions on corporate customers, it remains interested in producing headsets that will be distributed by average users in classrooms, museums, and doctor’s offices. To that end, the company today announced a new all-in-one enterprise headset called Mirage VR S3, featuring 4K displays and easier-to-clean face plates considered “suitable for mass use” in the COVID-19 era.
Interestingly, the Mirage VR S3 was developed with Pico, which recently began shipping at a higher price Neo 2 and Neo 2 Eye corporate headsets under its own branding. While the Lenovo model is equally capable of carrying out independent operations, it uses less powerful ones Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip and 3DoF tracking, compared to Neo 2 Snapdragon 845 processor and 6DoF tracking. But it packs two 2160 x 1920 screens, 101 degrees of field of view, and more than three hours of battery life, all in a relatively light 1.04 pound housing compatible with glasses.
These carefully designed balanced specifications are designed to attract the attention of health care providers, for use cases that include practitioner training and patient therapy, as well as for educators looking for a more affordable and safer VR alternative for field trips and laboratory experiments . Lenovo also hopes that the Mirage VR S3 can be used for company safety instructions, training in high-risk law enforcement scenarios, and developing executive soft skills – applications that might be handled by Oculus Go but will benefit from higher S3 resolutions and ergonomic improvements. .
Apart from the older Snapdragon chip, the S3 is also behind the hardware curve in only supporting last generation wireless standards (Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2), as well as a single 3DoF controller. But Lenovo hopes to improve on the software side, with support for the company’s ThinkReality AR / VR application software platform, including enterprise integration and IT-level application and device management. S3 also supports the Lenovo VR Classroom 2 education platform and covers the company’s end-to-end global services through its life cycle.
The Mirage VR S3 will be available in the third quarter of 2020 throughout North America, England, France, Italy, Spain, China and Japan. The company’s price will be available through Lenovo ThinkReality website.
