Microsoft To Usher In 'Mixed Reality' Technology On Oct. 17

Lenovo Explorer hands-on

For those without a headset, there will be a Mixed Reality viewer within Windows 10 on desktop.

What is Windows Mixed Reality, when can I get it and what headsets are available?

That's £399 including the standard design motion controllers as part of a bundle, an expensive enough add-on in their own right.

Microsoft announced the general availability of its Windows 10 Fall Creators Update general availability at IFA 2017 in Berlin. We'd certainly hope so.

As expected, the Celtics were unwilling to sweeten the deal with a player from their coveted young core. Thomas was emphatic during an interview with ESPN on Tuesday that he would be fine.

Mixed reality has always been on Microsoft's radar, as earlier this year, it introduced Paint 3D.

Perhaps the most exciting is the addition of Windows Mixed Reality support, bringing immersive experiences to most everyone with a Windows 10 PC.

That's a bit later than expected, as this past April Microsoft committed to twice-yearly Windows 10 updates in March and September, in perpetuity. It will even add a cloud-powered Clipboard that will sync across Windows, iOS, and Android, so you can copy from a PC and paste it on a phone.

Worries are already mounting over whether or not Microsoft will attempt another walled garden ecosystem for the software, similar to what they attempted to do with Games For Windows Live; or the disabille manner in which Facebook attempted to corner the market with the Oculus Store.

Under the program, they are temporarily allowed to live, work and go to school in the country if they pass background checks. Trump's decision imminent, activists have mobilized to defend the program with demonstrations and petitions.

In fact, the Fall Creators Update's highlight feature isn't software at all - it's hardware. Lenovo has confirmed the Explorer can run on laptops and desktops with Intel integrated graphics.

"Our mission at Microsoft is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more", said Windows Chief Terry Myerson.

Windows 10 is created to power all kinds of devices, from wearable computers to smartphones to desktop machines, and an application needs to be written just once to perform on all of them, according to Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella.

Admins will be able to more easily manage these features using Intune and System Center Configuration Manager, according to Microsoft, with these orchestration tools will also be updated to make it easier for companies to audit the security configuration and patch status of devices across their IT estate.
