HP, Lenovo, Dell VR Headsets Coming To Windows 10 October 10th

The update contains many new features, including an eye-tracking component that can serve as a lifeline for users with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and new mixed-reality capabilities that can deposit users into convincing virtual experiences with the appropriate peripherals. More specifically, the main goal is to complete the Fall Creators Update with the new Windows 10 Inside Preview 16278.

What are your thoughts on new Mixed Reality devices?

"With the Fall Creators Update, Windows Defender is smarter and defends better than ever before, with behind the scenes cloud intelligence that enables these new defences against ransomware and exploits", said Terry Myerson, executive VP for the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft, in his IFA keynote. Asus won't be able to release its own Mixed Reality headset until Spring 2018. Microsoft plans to target these features first at advanced video game players using VR headsets, with business applications to follow, officials said.

The company has also improved Game Mode with the FCU, allowing you to "use the full processing power of your device as if it was an Xbox game console", from a button on the Game Bar.

Microsoft puts big hopes into its Mixed Reality platform, and aims to make it the next big thing. The update will also include the new Windows Fluent Design System, which will work to enhance the feel and look of apps and the operating system in general. In early May 2017, Microsoft ended support for version 1507; the first version of Windows 10 released in July of 2015. But with a price tag of $3,000, Windows-based mixed reality was a niche market made up of tech-savvy enterprises, developers and deep-pocketed enthusiasts. Acer and Dell have holiday bundles planned that include both a headset and a set of controllers. The headsets will start at $299.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators update arrives on October 17. That may sound impossible but there's one caveat: On iOS and Android the feature is powered by SwiftKey (that's the keyboard app Microsoft acquired for $250 million last year), so you'll need to have that app installed in order to use the feature.
