Microsoft showcases new mixed reality headsets from ASUS, Dell, and Lenovo
The “mixed reality” ecosystem is growing as three new manufacturers have joined.
Microsoft has just revealed mixed reality headsets from ASUS, Dell, and Lenovo. Dell is going for a white headset designed by the company’s XPS and Alienware teams. The headset is slick and will be available this coming holiday at an “affordable” price. The package includes a weight balanced headband, replaceable cushions, cable routing, and a flip-up visor.
As for ASUS, theirs is pretty unique and edgy. It reminds us of the ‘Deluxe’ variants of the Zenfone 2 with its polygonal 3D cover panel. Not much has been unveiled about the headset aside from having a six degrees of freedom (DOF) tracked motion controller. It’s unlikely to become available until 2018.
Lastly, Lenovo’s headset will be “incredibly affordable” and features built-in sensors for inside-out tracking and simplified set-up. It’ll be available sometime later year.
