MIXED REALITY HEADSETS
ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING NEW FEATURES OF THE FALL CREATORS UPDATE IS SUPPORT FOR WINDOWS MIXED REALITY, AND TO COINCIDE WITH THE LAUNCH OF THE UPDATE, A NUMBER OF BIG NAMES IN THE COMPUTING WORLD HAVE LAUNCHED THEIR DEVICES.
For example, the Acer Windows Mixed Reality headmounted display (HMD) launched at $649, while the Dell Visor can be bought for $799. Both of these prices are well below the asking price of the HTC Vive kit ($999), and close to the Oculus Rift. Other Mixed Reality headsets include the HP Windows Mixed Reality Headset, the Lenovo Explorer, the ASUS Windows Mixed Reality Headset and the Samsung HMD Odyssey.
With this early support for Windows Mixed Reality from these brands, it’s clear there’s a lot of faith in Microsoft’s new augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR) platform — and we should see even more Mixed Reality devices become available in the very near future.
Windows Mixed Reality mixes augmented reality and virtual reality tech to bring you a whole new way to interact with your PC — and gadget makers are already getting onboard.
