Microsoft recently revealed a new line of VR headsets that will not only take advantage of Windows 10’s VR and holographic capabilities, but will also have tracking sensors that nullify the need for an external camera.
However, there isn’t much known about the headsets themselves aside from the six degree freedom tracking system and the fact that they’re still wired. Not to be mistaken for Microsoft’s HoloLens though, which is an augmented reality headset that projects objects into the real world.
The partners that will be shipping said headsets will be HP, Dell, Acer, Lenovo and Asus, and they’re all already working in VR to a certain extent. Neither of them are big players in the VR space as of yet but this might put some needed competition into the market when they do debut their devices.
The headsets will start at USD$299 (about RM1255).
