Microsoft To Reveal VR Headset Plans In December

1 Mins read

US tech giant Microsoft is planning to hold two WinHEC events in December to reveal its virtual reality (VR) headset plans for Windows 10, a media report said Robot Tip. The Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) is a series of technical conferences and workshops where Microsoft elaborates on its hardware plans for Windows devices.


Microsoft has partnered with HP, Lenovo, Dell, Acer, and Asus to produce VR headsets that plug into Windows 10 PCs and provide the Windows Holographic shell and experience,” technology website TheVerge reported on Monday. Both the events are designed for hardware manufacturers to understand better the software plans for Windows Holographic, a mixed reality platform built around the API of Windows 10.

If Microsoft can convince VR headset makers to let Windows Holographic power its headsets, the company can create a platform around VR to sell games and apps all powered by Windows 10. The initial devices will start shipping after the Windows 10 Creators Update is made available to download in March 2017 and will function like VR headsets that connect to a PC and will support six degrees of freedom and inside-out tracking.
