Computex 2017: Microsoft shows off Dell and Asus Windows Mixed Reality headsets

Computex 2017: Microsoft shows off Dell and Asus Windows Mixed Reality headsets

Leading the way is ASUS, whose headset is designed with comfort in mind and "a futuristic head-mount device with a unique polygonal 3D cover panel".

In the midst of another confusing chapter in its hardware efforts - the rollout of the Microsoft Surface Laptop family - Microsoft executives at the Computex 2017 show in Taiwan seemed to feel the need to clarify that their hardware strategy continues to be about driving growth and customer demand for the OEM partner ecosystem.

Microsoft has informed us at Computex trade show that its partners are going to unveil a slew of new so-called Always Connected computers in the upcoming months. While pricing and availability were not available, Microsoft described that the ASUS headset is "fast, powerful, and ultra-light with six degrees of freedom (DOF) tracked motion controller, for an incredible, immersive MR experience". Microsoft on Wednesday pointed out partnerships with Intel, Qualcomm, ASUS, HP, Huawei, Lenovo and Xiaomi. Also showcased were the latest collections in consumer, gaming, education and commercial devices from Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Panasonic, Samsung and Toshiba. No extra USB ports or wall-mounting needed to use the Microsoft-powered headsets. One year later, a number of partners are ready with designs of their mixed reality headsets. Sensors are equipped with the device to provide inside-out tracking and get rid of the necessity for external equipment. Microsoft doesn't mention whether Asus' headset will be available later this year, so it's possible it might not arrive until 2018.

Microsoft says Dell's headset is "uniquely focused on user comfort" and is designed by the same team that builds the company's XPS and Alienware PCs. The headset will launch this holiday and will include a weight balanced headband, replaceable cushions, cable routing, and a flip-up visor. Acer's headset is priced at $299 Dollars while HP's headset sells for $329.

During Alex Kipman's Build keynote, we announced that Windows Mixed Reality dev kits from Acer and HP are now available for pre-order through the Microsoft Store for developers in the US (Acer, HP) and Canada (Acer, HP). The company has been reluctant to confirm a release date, so experts believe the company will take its time to ideal the device.
