"We are excited about our collaboration with ASUS to deliver a Windows Mixed Reality headset, unlocking unbelievable content experiences on an affordable and easy-to-set-up device", said Peter Han, vice president, Partner Devices and Solutions, Microsoft.

HP, Lenovo, and Acer are three other companies working on headsets.

"The introduction of Windows Mixed Reality headsets is big step forward for VR".

Sean also reports the controllers are not completely comfortable to use, but this is likely something which will vary from hand-size to hand-size. HTC has recently announced a permanent price-cut for the Vive; the Oculus Rift is even more affordable.

"Mixed Reality is the future, and we want everyone on the journey with us", said Kipman. Tuesday, Acer spoke briefly of its Windows Mixed Reality HMD, though it didn't reveal anything we didn't already know about the bright blue headset. They will have built-in sensors to track your physical position, and they don't require you to buy or install external sensors in your room.

Microsoft is planning on dropping more virtual reality news later this year, and we'll keep you posted when more information comes to light. For customers, we are creating the best, most affordable mixed reality headsets and bringing you immersive experiences that you will love. 343 Industries will bring future Halo experiences into mixed reality.

Nevertheless, the price gap between the top-tier VR headsets and what Microsoft and its partners are cooking up has narrowed.

Hence the use of breathable materials in the headset to help keep the skin cooler, and anti-bacterial, quick-drying surfaces have also been utilized here. Microsoft claims that Mixed-Reality PCs will run MR experience to the tune of 60 frames per second while Ultra PC will deliver 90 fps.

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

Ultra PCs are notebooks and desktops equipped with discrete graphics, which should yield a smoother experience overall.

The ASUS Mixed Reality Headset sports an "digital industrial" design language, sporting an outer design comprised of 3D polygons.

Microsoft released a sizzle reel of some of the available apps, which include Dreams of Dali, SuperHot VR, and GoPro 360-degree videos, among others. HoloLens demonstrations have included a Halo experience in the past, but 343's next work could well take the form of VR.
