Microsoft have revealed they’ve teamed up with various hardware makers to develop virtual reality headsets, many of which are expected to release next year.
The headsets are part of the wider Windows 10 ‘Creators Update’, as seen in the video below.
Powerful and affordable virtual reality is coming to everyone with the Creators Update. HP, Dell, Lenovo, ASUS, and Acer will ship the first VR headsets capable of mixed reality with the Windows 10 Creators Update. And these accessories will be the first and only with inside-out, six-degrees of freedom. Unlike every other virtual reality headset in the market today, there will be zero need for a separate room and complicated setup. While the less immersive VR accessories today cost more than $500, or require a new expensive device, these accessories will start at just $299 and work with affordable laptops and PCs.
At current there’s no more information on specs or any additional details, however we do know that the headsets are due to market around Spring 2017.
