Today, at CES 2018, Lenovo outlined its 2018 vision for technology innovations – this new portfolio of intelligent devices will make reality better, from the pocket to the PC to the home.
Virtual reality (VR) gets even better with a new take on VR consumption and creation. The Lenovo Mirage™ Solo with Daydream™ headset offers one of the simplest ways of exploring VR experiences to date. The headset brings immersive VR within the reach of mainstream consumersin a standalone, fully self-sufficient simple-to-use design. Use the Lenovo Mirage Camera with Daydream to capture life’s memorable moments and then relive them in 3D on the headset. Professionals too can transform their work through Augmented Reality (AR) with Lenovo C220 smart glasses. This monocular, light weight, hands free AR hardware and software experience leverages your smartphone’s capabilities to augment service tasks, training and more.
At home, get a more personalized, convenient and shared technology experience with the Lenovo Smart Display that has the Google Assistant™ built-in.™ We’ve also added more brainpower to our laptops: the always on, always connected Miix 630 2-in-1 detachable gives you the mobility of a smartphone with LTE1 and up to 20 hours of battery local video playback2 with the full performance and the productivity you’d expect of a Windows® 10 S PC. ThinkPad ups its game with a revamped X1 line and customer-centric innovations on the X, T and L Series. We’re also bringing users an easier way to migrate files and settings from one PC to another, identify secure Wi-Fi networks and get PC diagnostics and support through one app with Lenovo Vantage, on our Windows 10 PCs.
Whether it’s virtual, augmented or smarter features. Reality has never been so exhilarating.

Use your moto z to measure five vital health signs — heart rate, respiratory rate, Pulse Ox, core body temperature, and for the first time, accurate systolic and diastolic blood pressure from your finger.
A grand prize winner of the 2017 Transform the Smartphone Challenge with Indiegogo, the Livermorium Slider Keyboard Moto Mod gives you a full QWERTY slider keyboard and lets you tilt your moto z screen up to 60 degrees for the times when a touch screen can’t handle your typing needs.
