Watch the first teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story

After weeks of waiting, Disney has finally released its first official look at its upcoming Star Wars film, Solo: A Star Wars Story with a brief teaser during this evening’s Super Bowl.

The teaser opens with an Imperial recruiting officer asking a recruit what branch he’s interested in joining, to which he’s told, “I’m going to be a pilot, the best in the galaxy.” Along the way, we get some glimpses of a new-looking Millennium Falcon, Woody Harrelson’s Beckett, Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, and a brief glimpse of the film’s titular character, played by Alden Ehrenreich, all accompanied by some all-too-quick action scenes involving fighters, speeders, and what look like trains.

Fans have been desperately waiting for the…

Lenovo and Google unveil first stand-alone Daydream VR headset – the Mirage Solo

Lenovo is the usual suspect when Google wants to try out new hardware. Project Tango did not work out, but stand-alone Daydream VR headsets may be better. The first of its kind is the Lenovo Mirage Solo. The brain that powers this headset is called WorldSense. It tracks your movements without needing external sensors, similar to other stand-alone headsets. The familiar Daydream controller will let you interact with the virtual world. Lenovo is mum on the screen resolution but promises 110° field of view – matching the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The headset is powered by the Snapdragon…

Lenovo Mirage Solo revealed as a standalone Google Daydream VR headset

Lenovo Mirage Solo standalone Google Daydream VR headset

Google teased more than six months ago that it’d be teaming up with Lenovo to create a standalone Daydream virtual reality headset, and today that device has been revealed.

The Lenovo Mirage Solo will let you experience Google’s Daydream virtual reality platform without a compatible Android phone. The device includes a Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, and a 110-degree field of view.

Lenovo has also crammed a 4,000mAh battery inside the Mirage Solo that it says will give you seven hours of gameplay or video viewing. There’s a Daydream controller included with the device, too.

The Mirage Solo will launch in Q2 2018 at a price below $ 400.

After the news that HTC would no longer be creating a standalone Google Daydream VR headset, it’s good to see the Lenovo model finally revealed. While it’s not exactly cheap, the Lenovo Mirage Solo does offer a mobile VR experience without the need to buy a new Android phone. While the number of Daydream-compatible phones has grown recently, there are still lots of phones out there that don’t support it, and the Mirage Solo enables those people to give mobile VR a go without having to buy both a new phone and a VR headset.

Also announced today is the Lenovo Mirage Camera, a VR180 camera that’ll let you capture VR images and videos. You’ll be able to easily share those images and videos thanks to integration with YouTube and Google Photos. The Mirage Camera will launch later this year for under $ 400.

John Williams will compose the theme for Solo: A Star Wars Story

A veteran of the Star Wars universe is returning to the franchise for next year’s entry, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Variety says that composer John Williams will write the theme for the upcoming standalone film.

The move is unusual: Bourne Identity and How to Train Your Dragon composer John Powell will still score the film, but Williams will be responsible for composing the film’s theme. Williams tells Variety that he’ll write the theme for the film, which he will “offer […] to John [Powell], and to [director] Ron Howard.” If they’re happy with it, Powell will use it as the basis for his score. Williams recently composed the score for December’s The Last Jedi.

It looks as though Disney is looking to use some original work from Williams…
