CES 2018: The First Standalone VR Headset From Google and Lenovo Is a Beauty

Every major VR player has made the same promise. A VR headset that would be completely wireless. One that would let you go anywhere without tripping over cords or being tethered to a computer/phone/PS4. Google, which has spent more than a year quietly improving its VR platform, Daydream, is now the first company to cross the standalone finish line. The Daydream-powered Lenovo Mirage Solo is a beauty. Read More >>

I Slew Star Wars Villains With This New AR Lightsaber Setup

Torches and toy lightsabers might do a decent job of making you feel like a Jedi when you’re twelve, and fancy prop reproductions might do the job when you’re an adult. But it is all still make believe. You’re not taking on Darth Vader in your living room, you’re waving a toy and making “vrm vrrm” noises. A new augmented reality game from Disney hopes to change that. Star Wars: Jedi Challenges is Disney’s first standalone augmented reality machine. Created in conjunction with Lenovo, it’s a £250 set that includes a headset, tracking beacon and lightsaber remote. Pop your Android or iOS phone into the headset, put the beacon on the floor, ignite the lightsaber and your path to becoming a Jedi Master begins. Read More >>

Lenovo’s Miix 320 is an Insanely Cheap Windows Laptop 

If you’ve wanted a cheap laptop — especially a cheap convertible tablet/laptop hybrid — Chromebooks have typically been the best option. Sure, we’ve seen some super cheap Windows PCs over the years, but rarely have we seen a sub-£200 Windows convertible. Dell has a low-end 2-in-1, but super-cheap Windows laptops with touch screens are still fairly uncommon. Read More >>

New Lenovo ThinkPads Won’t Burn If You Use the Wrong Charger

Ahead of CES 2017 Lenovo has quietly refreshed its entire ThinkPad line with an update to the slightly faster Kaby Lake processor from Intel. Besides new version of laptops that have honest-to-god DVD players and VGA ports installed, Lenovo also saw all those beautiful gadgets that exploded this year and decided that it would maybe make sure its own laptops don’t go poof like so many Note 7s and Chromebooks. So for next year Lenovo has equipped its refreshed line of ThinkPads with a chip to keep them from exploding due to a bad USB-C connection. Read More >>
