First Windows Mixed Reality headsets to be released this October

The Dell, Lenovo, HP and Acer headsets are all shown in the image on the Microsoft UK news centre, and given the USA pricing for these it's probably safe to assume these will be the ones we're looking at. We see students playing and learning with Minecraft, lawyers creating with words, accountants painting with numbers, designers sharing their ideas with slides, and engineers crafting in code.

The Update will also include support for mixed reality, both from headsets and on the PC.

Microsoft's personal-computer hardware partners will start selling mixed-reality headsets on october 17 when Microsoft debuts the next version of its Windows 10 operating system, dubbed the Fall Creators Update. First off, Windows Ink is getting an upgrade, allowing users to "ink directly onto PDFs", which will make it easier and faster to share comments with others. And you know how sometimes you can't find your keys, wallet, and phone, sometimes it's hard to find your pen to do the inking. Currently, Microsoft is finalizing the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and the testing is expected to be completed by the end of September. Access to the Windows Store is also an important part of running the latest versions of Windows 10.

Photos and Videos: The Photos application has been redesigned, and you may tell "stories with photos, videos, music, 3D and even inking" using it.

The fuel that often inspires creativity is play.

Asus' Mixed Reality headset is set for the spring 2018 release, and it will be priced at $535.

Microsoft hardware partners announced a whole range of new devices, and Microsoft choose to highlight some on the Windows blog.

The Explorer ships in October, and the pricing will seem very familiar if you've read about other WMR headsets.
