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.
