Lenovo uses this year’s CES to show what they’ve got to offer in terms of virtual reality experiences. Apart from announcing the Y720 and Y520 laptops which support VR, the Chinese company also presented a prototype of a yet-to-be-named VR headset built for the Windows Holographic platform.
While details are still scarce, Windows Central reports that it is lighter than both the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift and features two displays with a resolution of 1400 x 1400 pixels. While VR headsets for the use with PCs still are extremely expensive, Microsoft previously announced that they are going to offer some competitively priced VR headsets together with their partners. And Lenovo indeed is targeting a lower than average price point with this headset as they plan to bring it to market for under $400. In addition to supporting Windows Holographic, the Lenovo VR headset will also work with the Xbox controller.
At the moment it is unclear when Lenovo is going to officially announce the product as consumer-ready version and when it is going to bring the device to market.
