Microsoft is finally making two of its Windows Mixed Reality headsets available to everyone.
The Acer headset which goes for $299 and the HP headset for $329. Both of them have similar specs with 2.89-inch displays and six degrees of freedom tracking for Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality world.
Microsoft started pre-orders back in May, allowing developers to get early access. While these are aimed at developers, people can still buy one of these from the Microsoft Store. Both development kits use internal tracking sensors which remove the need for external cameras or markers. The experience is very similar to VR regardless of the branding.
People will need a PC with Nvidia GTX 980/1060 or higher to get a good experience despite its promise of running on Intel HD 620 graphics. Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo are all planning to release Windows Mixed Reality headsets later this year.
