Earlier today, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Lenovo announced a two-year patent license agreement, which will allow Lenovo to use the design of the PlayStation VR headset in their products. This design will be used in Lenovo's Mirage Solo virtual reality headset, which will offer Daydream VR capabilities without needing an additional smartphone or computer.

"We are pleased to announce that we have licensed the PS VR headset design to Lenovo," said Riley Russell, Chief Legal Officer at SIE. "The industrial design for PS VR has been widely acclaimed, and that was the result of years of hard work by PlayStation engineers. This agreement with Lenovo is a testament to the quality of PS VR's design, as well as SIE's commitment to creating great virtual reality experiences and helping the VR industry expand."

The Lenovo Mirage Solo has been on sale for many months, but we can assume future designs will look even more similar to the PlayStation VR than they do now. No additional details on how the agreement will impact the Mirage Solo were given.
