Halo Mixed Reality Experience in Development

HTC Vive

"Virtual reality enthusiasts know that Steam is a great place to enjoy cutting-edge immersive experiences. Microsoft's significant investment in mixed reality speaks volumes about the future of this medium", said Jaunt CEO & President, George Kliavkoff in a statement. Join us as we take you through the edited highlights. First, we are excited to announce the first wave of content partners coming to Windows Mixed Reality. Both of these offer six-degrees-of-freedom positional tracking, have a total 3K resolution and don't require any external sensors or software in the process.

To be clear, the actual entertainment experiences are all based in virtual reality, as we learned during a hands-on preview. The rift is even cheaper, costing just $399 during its summer sale.

While the company's HoloLens, which is aimed at developers and used by NASA and Audi among others, costs thousands of pounds, the new headsets and motion controller bundle will be priced at £399. Redmond wants to make Windows Mixed Reality easy to setup, affordable, and to give users a range of hardware choices to generate immersive experiences. According to The Verge, the cameras on the front of the headset could theoretically provide a reality which is halfway between AR and VR. The new gear, which connects to the computer, will also be compatible with content featured on SteamVR. The controllers look like the HTC Vive Wands and Oculus Touch controllers had a baby, and those headsets include internal sensors that negate the need for any boxes or mic stands scattered around your living room. Now, you can travel the world. Plug-and-play if you will. However the Vive headsets are required in using or playing them. Dubbed Windows Mixed Reality, the technology is made to run on Windows 10. In addition to being thousands of dollars cheaper than HoloLens (which technically isnot a consumer device), the mixed reality headsets were created to be tethered to a PC. In addition, you'll be able to multitask with only three open apps at a time. Fortunately, Microsoft has a plan for that. "We are working with 343 Industries to bring future Halo experiences into mixed reality", Kipman said.

Tillerson On Trump's C'Ville Response: 'The President Speaks For Himself'
During an appearance on Fox News Sunday , Tillerson stated that Trump speaks for himself on his values. Racism is evil; it is antithetical to America's values.

But Microsoft did not invent the concept or phrase Mixed Reality. Now the company is looking to carve out its own niche in the market with its mixed-reality headsets.

However, some things have changed since Microsoft's price confirmation.
