Microsoft might sneak preview the mixed reality offerings ahead of official release

By : |September 19, 2017 0

Microsoft is likely to showcase the company’s new line of mixed reality offerings in a media event on October 3 in San Francisco. The Redmond giant has started inviting media to the event with a promise that it’ll be an opportunity to see “where Microsoft is headed next” in terms of its mixed reality vision and offerings.

While the event is expected to be a sum up of the plethora of Windows Mixed Relaity headsets arriving on October 17 alongside Windows 10’s Fall Creators Update, Microsoft is also expected to highlight games and other software experiences that take advantage of the hardware.

In August, Microsoft said that several companies like HP, Lenovo, and Dell would debut VR headsets in time for the upcoming holiday season. A special version Windows 10 operating system that was built for virtual reality will power these headsets.

Alex Kipman, a Microsoft technical fellow who helped create the HoloLens, will oversee the event, which will show off the company’s “Windows Mixed Reality experience coming this holiday to Windows 10 PCs,” Microsoft said in a statement.

Not much is expected in terms of new hardware. Rather,  it seems that company executives will try to provide a clearer picture of how the HoloLens, PCs, and virtual-reality/mixed reality headsets fit into Microsoft’s strategy in this area.
