Consumer Windows 10 Mixed Reality Headsets Launching From $350

HTC Vive

Dell Visor has 1440×1440 resolution for each eye which is same as that to HP and Acer headsets. With Windows Mixed Reality, you can escape the everyday into a world of imagination.

Microsoft is now ready to give up more details on its plan with these PC makers at IFA in Berlin.

This holiday season, Microsoft and its hardware partners are joining forces to deliver mixed-reality hardware with prices that are a little more down to earth. The controllers look like the HTC Vive Wands and Oculus Touch controllers had a baby, and those headsets include internal sensors that negate the need for any boxes or mic stands scattered around your living room. The company also said its mixed reality content would include Steam's VR games and even some sort of Halo experience. Microsoft and Mojang partnered with Oculus past year to bring the game to both the Rift and the Gear VR. On the Acer one, the ring juts out from the front of the controller and is covered with constellation of bright LEDs, which are used for positioning by the headset's two external cameras.

The headset has a cable management clip to secure cords and route them to the back of the headband.

Last spring, Microsoft and a few hardware partners introduced the first series of affordable "mixed reality" headsets.

The lower-price ($499) standard PCs will feature integrated graphics and be capable of processing images at 60 frames per second, while a line of more expensive so-called ultra-PCs will feature discreet graphics and run at 90 frames per second.

"The wording here - "[bringing] future Halo experiences into mixed reality" - could imply that these will be additional mixed reality experiences within forthcoming games, rather than standalone.

Learning from competitors, Microsoft is looking to avoid the missteps of others by making its technology reasonably priced, easy to use and compatible with a wider range of PC options.

Windows Mixed Reality needs some software to make it an attractive proposition and what better library for entertainment than Steam? Customers can choose the PC that's right for them i.e. Windows Mixed Reality PCs and Windows Mixed Reality Ultra PCs. Microsoft has, and the ease of use that results is probably the clearest differentiating factor it has from the broader competition. HoloLens demonstrations have included a Halo experience in the past, but 343's next work could well take the form of VR.
