Microsoft announces range of VR headsets for Windows 10 starting at $299


Microsoft at its Surface event announced that its new Windows 10 Creators Update is coming early next year and also announced that the update will bring support for VR headsets and mixed reality. Microsoft is partnering with HP, Lenovo, Dell, Acer and ASUS who will sell their first VR headsets capable of mixed reality through the Creators Update.

These VR headsets will have built-in sensors to enable inside-out, six-degrees of freedom for simplified setup and to more easily move around your home as you experience virtual worlds without any markers “Unlike every other virtual reality headset in the market today, there will be zero need for a separate room and complicated setup,” said Microsoft.

The VR headsets will work with HoloTour software included with the HoloLens headset to transport you to countries and places around the world. From within Microsoft’s virtual world you can create your own space.

The new VR headsets will work with affordable laptops and PCs, arrive in 2017, and start at US$ 299 (Rs. 19,990 approx.).
