Dell unveils Inspiron laptop primed for Windows mixed reality

Microsoft still hopes it can put the "reality" into virtual reality sales.

"Second, it's my pleasure to let you know that we are working with 343 Industries to bring future Halo experiences into mixed reality".

The collaboration on the ASUS Windows Mixed Reality Headset underscores the strong partnership between ASUS and Microsoft Corp. and their commitment to creating innovative technology and providing high quality and attainable experiences to users. But if Microsoft wants a truly portable system, they'll have to find a way to cut the cord like the Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream View.

Taylor Swift's new music video makes biggest YouTube debut ever
After 24 hours, the video racked in over 43.2 million viewers, smashing Psy's record of 36 million for his "Gentleman" video. Taylor slams someone for their "titled stage", which the "All Day" hitmaker had one during his 'Saint.

Microsoft says that existing high-end VR headsets are neither easy to setup, nor affordable.

While the company's HoloLens, which is aimed at developers and used by NASA and Audi among others, costs thousands of pounds, the new headsets and motion controller bundle will be priced at £399. Microsoft did hint at some upcoming tech that would widen the scope of applications that mixed reality is capable of. Notably during a 30-minute play session with the headset on a Mixed Reality Ultra-specced PC (with a 1080 GPU no less), it was hard to notice any obvious issues with the headset's lower-quality LCD displays.

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 Windows Mixed Reality platform on Windows 10 PCs offers a combination of virtual reality with a "sense of presence". Developers may have to retroactively add Windows VR support for each game, so be aware that these new headsets may not work with all VR games straight out of the box.

Numerous headsets will be arriving this fall with full details being shared at IFA this week for some of the partners. "We can't wait to bring their content to you", Kipman said. The question isn't so much whether an integrated GPU can run VR, but what kind of quality sacrifices will be required to run it well, and whether we'll ever see games support this beyond the simplest titles. And all of these headsets are supposed to be affordable.

Microsoft says that these PCs will start at $499. At its Build conference in May, Acer announced a $399 bundle of headset plus a set of motion controllers. In other words, Microsoft has to prepare for an intense competition.
