Microsoft VR… MSVR? WindowsVR? WINVR?
“The number of big-name manufacturers getting into VR is going to increase substantially with the entry of Microsoft VR hardware partners, revealed on stage today at Microsoft’s hardware-focused event. Terry Myerson, Microsoft executive VP of Windows and Devices took the stage today to announce that the company is partnering with HP, Lenovo, Dell, Asus, and Acer to make VR headsets as a part the new Windows 10 Creator’s Update.
“These headsets will be the first and only to ship with inside-out, 6-degrees of freedom sensors. Unlike every other VR headset on the market today, it means there’ll be zero reason for a separate room, zero need for a complicated setup, and while those less immersive accessories today cost over $500—most of the time requiring a new, expensive device, we are announcing today that these Creator’s Update accessories start at just $299,” said Myerson.
