Microsoft unveiled a few things during their BUILD 2017 conference this week, one of which was some new news about their Windows Mixed Reality development kits.
During the conference, Microsoft revealed that you can pre-order these kits from their website today and get it shipped to you in the summer of this year, including both Acer’s and HP’s development kits.
Acer’s is priced at $299 in the US and HP’s is priced at $329.
You can see Acer’s in the image above and HP’s in the image below.
Both of these kits will use Microsoft’s new Windows VR platform for the purpose of consuming mixed reality content.
We don’t the expect specifications about any of these kits just yet, however, we do know that Acer’s has a 1,440 x 1,440-pixel resolution per eye.
But these aren’t the only partners, 3Glasses, Dell, and Lenovo will also have their own kits.
And Microsoft had more to show off. They also revealed their new mixed reality controller during the show which you can see in the video below.
They look similar to the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive controllers, however, they have a ring of LEDs at the end of each controller for the purpose of tracking.
They also have a panel that contains a round trackpad, analog stick, and a menu button on the top with a Windows button and a side grip trigger on the body.
We will be sure to update you as we hear more about all of these. In the meantime, you can find out more and pre-order both kits at the source link below.
