Microsoft also published a graphic of some of the developers who will be publishing apps to mixed reality. "Along with our partners, we are committed to making mixed reality affordable", Kipman wrote.

According to publication site GameRant it is said that Microsoft has announced the first-wave of upcoming Windows Mixed Reality titles. While that may seem a little confusing as the game already worked in virtual reality, for others it will be positive to know that Minecraft VR will work correctly across a variety of headsets.

The controllers are reference designs, with OEMs releasing their own very lightly rebranded versions, so his review should be applicable to the devices delivered by Asus, Dell, Acer, HP and so forth.

The Inspiron 15 7000 features Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1060 discrete graphics, which allows it to meet Microsoft's "ultra" mixed reality category since it enables playback on VR headsets at 90fps.

Mixed reality has big potential to revolutionize industry with the ability to help train new workers and to bring gaming into your home in a new way.

Dell revealed more information about its first Windows Mixed Reality headset yesterday, and now it is ASUS' turn to do the same.

Setup is pretty simple for the play space and basically just involves grabbing the headset and walking around the borders of your play space so that its cameras can pick up on the space's 3D mesh to make its job of tracking moving forward a bit easier. Dell is offering the headset for $359.99 USA and the controllers for another $99.99 US. This holiday, customers can choose the PC that's right for them - Windows Mixed Reality PCs and Windows Mixed Reality Ultra PCs.

This is part of a push for affordable VR as an integral part of Windows 10.

The Dell Visor HMD is similar to Acer's Mixed Reality HMD, and it's connected to a Windows PC with a single USB Type-C cable. When plugged into these devices, the headsets will run at 90 frames per second. With Windows Mixed Reality, you can escape the everyday into a world of imagination.

We are working with an incredible set of partners to bring the most immersive experiences to the Windows Store.

In addition, Steam content will run on Windows Mixed Reality headsets, giving owners access to a robust catalogue of virtual reality games and experiences. The first is Mixed Reality PCs, which includes laptops and desktops that have integrated graphics cards and play content at 60FPS. "We are just getting started and we are honoured to work with world class creators and developers".

To be clear, the actual entertainment experiences are all based in virtual reality, as we learned during a hands-on preview.

Hygiene has also been considered, because as Asus noted in its IFA presentation, you may well share this device around between friends, and some of the more adrenaline-fuelled VR experiences could cause users to sweat.
