#IFA2017 – We expected to hear more information about Windows Mixed Reality headsets from Microsoft’s hardware partners at IFA 2017 and we’ve not been disappointed. ASUS has officially unveiled its Windows Mixed Reality headset today at its IFA 2017 press event. As far as the design is concerned, it’s quite unique when compared to some of the other Mixed Reality headsets that we’ve seen so far.
Hundreds of 3D polygons make the design beautifully unique> There’s a glossy tone-on-tone effect for more flair. It weighs just under 400g and features premium antibacterial cushioned materials. The balanced-crown design reduces pressure on the nose and face so the headset is cool and comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
On the technical front, it features inside-out tracking with two built-in front-facing tracking cameras with six-degrees-of-freedom position tracking. It doesn’t need external hardware of software for this so users can get up and running in mere minutes.
ASUS has confirmed that its Windows Mixed Reality headset is going to cost 449 euros. That’s around $535 when converted per the prevailing exchange rate so you now have an idea what the headset is likely to cost when it does arrive in North America.
The company is yet to confirm when it’s going to release the headset, though.
