Talking about the new gear, the headset comes with a two front-hinged 2.89-inch high-resolution liquid crystal displays that provide a wide 95-degree field of view. It offers a 2880x1440 resolution and the company claims that it lets users enjoy an incredibly interactive and immersive VR experience. The headset offers fast refresh rate of up to 90Hz that delivers clear and realistic images for an eccentric mixed reality experience.


Further, the device comes with a double-padded sweat-resistant material, offers comfort and durability and allows easy adjustments of headbands, which ensures the perfect fit. For greater flexibility and freedom, the mixed reality gives users the ability to interact directly with their environment. It enables customers to interact with software using gesture, gaze and voice, while also having the option to use traditional inputs like mice, keyboards, and controllers.

With inside-out tracking, the camera is on the headset, so there is no need to drill holes in a wall or set up extraneous hardware. As soon as the headset connects to a Windows Mixed Reality-ready PC, it installs the required software, making it possible to experience mixed reality almost anywhere.

The 6-degrees of freedom positional tracking includes forward/back, up/down, left/right as well as pitch, yaw, and roll. The headset comes with a 13-foot cable allowing a wide range movement and connects to a PC via HDMI 2.0, while a USB 3.0 connector downloads data.

The pricing and availability details are yet to be revealed.
