Lenovo Explorer Boldly Goes Into the World of Mixed Reality

And if you don't have a headset, you'll also be able to check out some experiences in 2D with the Mixed Reality Viewer. The most affordable Mixed Reality headset will be the one from Acer, priced at $299, followed by HP's device priced at $329; while Lenovo and Dell will price theirs at $349. Starting at $350, the Lenovo Explorer fits the bill nicely with its widespread functionality: users can watch 4K TV shows, view 360-degree video, play VR games, and even use the headset for productivity via Windows programs like Excel.

That's £399 including the standard design motion controllers as part of a bundle, an expensive enough add-on in their own right.

Terry Myerson, executive vice president of Microsoft's Windows and Devices Group announces the release date at the IFA conference in Berlin on Friday.

The Microsoft Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 will be available as of October 17, 2017. We'd certainly hope so.

Designing Windows to make Microsoft cloud services available from competitors' devices and moving quickly in the nascent mixed-reality market were seen as shrewd moves by the company.

He said the county is trying to determine where the water will go, specifically from the north end of the Addicks reservoir. Two other Houston reservoirs are overflowing, despite a controlled water release that aimed to prevent flooding downtown.

The update will arrive slightly later than expected, with the firm announcing earlier this year it would aim to deliver two features updates to Windows on PCs and servers each year, around March and September.

The Halo franchise is coming to Windows Mixed Reality in some form or another, Microsoft has confirmed.

Just like other companies involved into the Windows Mixed Reality initiative, Lenovo positions its HMD for VR games and entertainment, 360° video, work, AR-supporting programs and other emerging workloads. Another feature that is delayed is the Clipboard feature, which allows users to copy data between phones and PCs. The update improves Windows Inking, making stylus controls more accurate than ever.

You'll likely notice the new My People feature when you install the update, as it allows you to select your three best friends and add them as icons in the taskbar for quick and easy contact - though the Insider Preview version limits you to using Skype or Mail alone.
