One year later, a number of partners are ready with designs of their mixed reality headsets.

ASUS is said to be working on a futuristic head-mount device that will feature a unique polygonal 3D cover panel and an ergonomically adjustable strap, allowing for easy single-handed setup.

Other times, the results can be confusing, such as when Microsoft bought Nokia's phone business to bolster its struggling Windows Phone platform, and counterintuitively predicted that by owning the biggest manufacturer of Windows Phone devices, Microsoft would somehow encourage more handsets for that ecosystem from other vendors.

After that during various events we have alreday seen the Windows Mixed Reality Headsets from partners like Acer, HP and Lenovo. In addition, the inside-out tracking technology negates the need for additional sensors around a room, and the headsets can run on relatively low-powered Windows-based computers. Microsoft says that the headset will be available by the holiday. Inside-out tracking enables the device to accurately keep track of its position relative to its surroundings without the aid of external sensors and other tracking devices.

Lib Dems expected to make second European Union referendum key manifesto plank
The party, which has been polling under 10 percent , conceded that the Tories are set to make big gains in the June 8 election. Tim Farron has dismissed claims he was against abortion after it emerged that he previously said the practice was "wrong".

Microsoft says Lenovo's headset will be available sometime "later this year". Mixed reality has to catch up with VR when it comes to consumer awareness and Dell plans on doing that with its new stylish white headset which is designed by the same team that makes their premium XPS and Alienware PCs. Expected to launch at an affordable price, this Windows mixed reality headset packs a sporty weight-balanced headgear, replaceable cushions, cable routing to protect wires from dangling and a flip-up visor.

Acer and HP will start shipping their first developer kits this August for $299 and $329 respectively.

The tech giant also outlined key areas of focus to inspire customers, increase momentum in the PC market with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and spark emerging categories including Windows Mixed Reality, Windows and Azure solutions for the Internet of Things.

Dell's consumer headset is expected to be targeted at the masses with its affordable pricing. The company has been reluctant to confirm a release date, so experts believe the company will take its time to flawless the device.
