Lenovo is targeting business users with its ThinkReality VR headset. The color passthrough headset is now available.
Lenovo’s ThinkReality VR headset is now available in select markets, including Germany and the United States. The enterprise headset with thin pancake lenses features a resolution of 2280 x 2280 pixels per eye and the Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 1 chip system. In addition to four tracking cameras, there are two color cameras in the front that provide a stereoscopic view of the outside world.
Lenovo has tailored the mixed reality headset for enterprise use. The headset can be used as a standalone device with built-in content, connected to a PC or to a workstation. The VR headset can be wired or wirelessly connected to the PC.
VR/AR headset for enterprise
The battery on the back of the headset is said to be designed to balance weight distribution for comfortable use over long periods of time. A ventilation system is designed to increase comfort and dissipate heat away from the face.
In addition, the device supports enterprise-level security requirements, according to the manufacturer. This includes a protected supply chain. The VR controllers in the trailer are similar to those on the Quest 2, but with a gap in the front of the tracking ring. Hand tracking is also shown in the video.
A software suite includes various “end-to-end services, from consulting and content creation to cloud deployment and customer support”. The ThinkReality software platform allows companies to manage, configure and deploy applications to multiple VR headsets simultaneously. Developers can access the Snapdragon Spaces AR platform and its OpenXR SDK.
Lenovo mentions meetings, simulations, sales, and security training, as well as working on digital twins. Interested parties can register on the official website to be contacted by a sales representative. Prices start at $1,299 and can vary depending on the quantity purchased. Financing options are also available.
Lenovo has developed several VR headsets over the years, including the Lenovo Explorer Windows Mixed Reality headset. Lenovo was also involved in Meta’s Rift S. In August 2022, the standalone Lenovo VR700 aimed at gamers was launched in China.
