Valve confirm Steam support for Windows VR headsets

Microsoft is taking a big step forward with its plan to conquer virtual reality

NanoEdge 4K UHD or Full HD touchscreen display has 178° wide-view technology and precision-stylus support, ideal for drawing on and highlighting web pages in Microsoft Edge or using with Windows Ink.

Asus' new Mixed Reality headset is based on Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality concept, something that the Redmond major is pushing in a major way.

Dell further notes that it's building toward platform agnostic communication, and that users may be able to interact with owners of different MR headset brands down the road. Do you have experience with VR?

Facebook appears to have effectively neutered this impact significantly through their aggressive price cuts on the Oculus Rift. The headset and motion controller bundles will start at $399.

This week the company will be "sharing more details on Windows Mixed Reality headsets" at the IFA consumer electronic trade show in Berlin, Kipman wrote.

The motion controllers are comfortable and easy to use.


Anyway, the first Windows Mixed Reality headsets will finally arrive for consumers this holiday season, as planned. For these prices you unfortunately don't get almost the level of refinement offered by the Rift or Vive.

Windows Mixed Reality Ultra PCs: will consist of desktops and laptops with discrete graphics.

This is part of a push for affordable VR as an integral part of Windows 10. Odd and not so great.

Dell has made a play for the burgeoning VR headset market with its new Visor headset and controller combo. I wasn't in the headset for more than two minutes before the warning signs availed themselves. But I am, of course, curious to see how things develop.

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

There's a lot to play. While that may seem a little confusing as the game already worked in virtual reality, for others it will be positive to know that Minecraft VR will work correctly across a variety of headsets. This means that it doesn't need base stations on the walls, nor does it need the laser-based tracking used in the HoloLens headset. The Asus headset also includes a proximity sensor. For more people to experience VR one of the barriers that needed to be removed was the need for external markers. Whether Microsoft achieves that goal - with Apple, Google, and Facebook all ramping up the competition - remains to be seen.
