Dell unveils its first Windows Mixed Reality headset

Microsoft Announces SteamVR Support for Mixed Reality Headsets Halo Set for Debut as Well

"The introduction of Windows Mixed Reality headsets is [a] big step forward for VR", says Valve's Joe Ludwig, stating that "working with Microsoft to include SteamVR compatibility with these devices is a big step in growing VR as an open platform for developers and consumers". Unlike most of the other Windows Mixed Reality headset, it is also designed with a flip-up visor, allowing for convenient transitions to and out of the mixed reality world.

This week, at IFA in Berlin, Microsoft plans to share more details about these Windows Mixed Reality headsets, which are due to start arriving this holiday season.

The key difference is that these Windows headsets use inside-out tracking, locating your position in VR using sensors fitted to the headset itself, while Rift and Vive rely on external sensors that can clutter up your room. You won't need a large play space either or hours of setup. And all of the headsets are supposed to be affordable. The HMD will also have companion controllers similar to the Oculus Rift Touch Controller, which will retail at $100 (around £80, AU$125) separately. The devices will work with PC systems that will start at $499. They'll eventually be offering PCs with those capable of 60 frames labeled as standard Mixed Reality PCs and those capable of 90 labeled as Mixed Reality Ultra. When plugged into these devices, the headsets will run at 60fps. There hasn't been a great deal of info released on what sort of content Microsoft has planned for the actual launch, but it has confirmed some of the experiences that'll feature on the Windows Store, as well as working alongside 343 Industries on some Halo projects.
