Lenovo has announced the Lenovo VR Classroom 2 and issued the Tweet above and this press release.
According to the product page, the included “Lenovo Mirage VR S3” headset contains a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and runs on Android, with a 1,920 x 2,160 resolution per eye and a 4200mAh battery inside, USB-C charging, and a simple controller. It doesn’t look very sophisticated by gaming standards, but it also looks like it might be relatively affordable which matters in education. At least the individual units may be affordable enough to allow entire school districts to buy lots of them.

The solution comes with a new headset and content management system, as well as diverse curriculum-mapped experiences, including STEM, virtual tours, and career exploration. Lenovo VR Classroom 2 is powered by the ThinkReality™ platform, making it simple for IT staff to deploy a fleet of headsets. Lenovo VR Classroom 2 also uses LanSchool™ to enable teachers to confidently deploy VR to their classes.”
