Price won’t be a problem anymore, at least not when it comes to VR headsets. Microsoft just announced the development of an affordable, mid-range Windows 10 headset #realitymagic
Unlike Samsung Gear VR and Daydream, Microsoft’s Windows 10 headset will come with inside-out tracking, a technology used for Hololens, too. This means the headset doesn’t need external cameras to track your motions and project them into the other environment. Instead, everything should happen smoothly, really immersing you in the desired world.
If you think this improvement will be felt in the price, you’re wrong. Microsoft partners like Asus, Lenovo, Acer, HP and Dell will sell these devices starting from $299.
The price & features combo could make the headset an immediate hit. One thing is sure: it’s going to fill the empty spot left between accessible mobile headsets and premium, powerful Oculus Rift one.
