Microsoft unveils Windows Mixed Reality headsets at Computex

Dell is yet another hardware company that has partnered with Microsoft to deliver an affordable mixed reality headset.

The preview marked the company's commitment to establish Windows 10 as a leading driver of mixed reality capabilities, as well as to open up the market to a wider variety of price points and consumer demographics. After revealing that Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo will all create headsets, Microsoft is providing a little more detail about the Dell, Asus, and Lenovo devices today.

At the ongoing Computex 2017 in Taipei, Microsoft showcased new developments in the field of mixed reality headsets. Sensors are equipped with the device to provide inside-out tracking and get rid of the necessity for external equipment.

Barlow highlighted innovations coming in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, announced over the last month. The headset's connectivity solutions are built in, including a 3.5-mm jack for audio and microphone support, a USB 3.0 port for data transference, and an HDMI 2.0 slot for media.

The response has been positive, Han said. ASUS is engaged with Microsoft to make this HMD fast, powerful, and ultra-light with a six degrees of freedom (DOF) tracked motion controller, for an incredible, immersive MR experience.

Dell is working on its own headset is focused on user comfort and is designed by the same team that creates their premium XPS and Alienware PCs.

The device will be ready by the upcoming holiday shopping season.

These Head Mounted Devices, HMDs for short, are fully enclosed virtual reality headsets - there is no mixed reality to be had using these devices - there is no visual aspect of using these and also seeing your actual local environment.

According to Parker, this vision begins by inspiring customers with new experiences and devices that empower people and businesses to achieve more. Each will be relatively affordable, depending on your definition of affordable, with prices starting at $300.

At the show this year, we are able to show off the great new designs from these partners making mixed reality available for everyone later this year. In addition, the inside-out tracking technology negates the need for additional sensors around a room, and the headsets can run on relatively low-powered Windows-based computers.
