Samsung Odyssey looks like the best Windows Mixed Reality headset yet

Windows Mixed Reality headsets

"Designed in partnership with Microsoft, the Samsung HMD Odyssey transports consumers to the next frontier of Windows Mixed Reality, which introduces to them to a new, industry-leading virtual reality experience". The PC you'll use to run this headset will get its update to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on October 17th.

6DOF and inside-out tracking give you a sense of space inside a VR realm, but there's an unmistakable separation from the virtual world and what's going on outside the visor that leaves you feeling a little bit vulnerable. However, where Samsung, and by extension Microsoft, do have an advantage is in accessibility. Samsung is also bundling the Microsoft's motion controllers and it can be used with any mixed reality headset. This all a part of Microsoft's Mixed Reality efforts, which no doubt will be a force to reckon with in the months and years ahead. An array of microphones is built into the headset for voice commands, and a set of two handheld motion controllers is included in the package.

It's important to note that developer editions for some of these headsets have already been offered through the Microsoft Store.

While it is unknown if this will lead to more Halo mixed reality experiences, fans can look forward to Halo Recruit very soon Unfortunately, it won't be a full game or even minigame, so don't get your hopes completely up. Though unlike with Oculus Home, Kipman was able to move around the space naturally and without worrying about the line of sight of nearby cameras.

Both Apple and Google are focused on bringing a slightly different format called "augmented reality" to smartphones running on their software. "Mixed reality offers a plethora of fun and engaging content that is continually evolving". Here is all we know about the high-end device debuting today. I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop. "Microsoft is most interested in preserving the current community that uses AltspaceVR to connect and interact with new and old friends".

"Microsoft is providing an OpenVR driver that allows SteamVR to automatically identify Windows MR hardware". (You do with the existing Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR.) But we haven't yet tried it under real-world conditions, only in fairly dim rooms, and we had some tracking issues in early demos.
