This week Microsoft sent out some invites to the media for a Widows Mixed Reality event that they will be hosting in San Francisco on October 3rd, during which time Microsoft has promised to discuss “where Microsoft is headed next”.
It should be an interesting event from the company, who has been slowly stepping into this mixed reality space with a number of details over the last few years, however, they haven’t released a completed headset to the public yet.
They first announced their HoloLens mixed reality headset back in 2015, which is a headset that is capable of showcasing both augmented and virtual reality content. Recently they expanded upon that with some details about the PC partners that will be working with Microsoft on the headset, which are due to arrive on October 17th.
We don’t really know what Microsoft will unveil during this October 3rd event, but since this is before the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update and these headsets, we might hear more about these ahead of the release.
But there could be much more than that and possibly even details about Microsoft’s own HoloLens headset that we are expecting to see a public release for at some point.
That said, ZDNet has said that Microsoft won’t unveil any hardware during the event. Instead, they will probably just reveal some more information about their plans for mixed reality, which we would agree with.
Of course, we will update you as we hear more.
