How to set up your Windows mixed-reality headset

Microsoft has launched affordable and easy-to-use mixed-reality headsets that will include content from the Steam gaming platform and Halo franchise. The technology firm announced a range of devices and motion controllers from HP, Lenovo, Dell and Acer.

“Mixed reality is the future, and we want everyone on the journey with us,” Alex Kipman, Technical Fellow at Microsoft, said. “For customers, we are creating the best, most affordable mixed-reality headsets and bringing you immersive experiences that you will love. For developers, we are making it easy to create great content spanning from simple augmented reality to virtual reality and, of course, holograms.”

The new Windows mixed-reality headsets are the first to deliver virtual reality experiences with built-in sensors to track your physical position without users needing to buy and install external sensors in their room.
