Microsoft announced last year that they were partnering with device makers Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and 3Glasses to create a range of headsets for use with Mixed-Reality compatible Windows PCs. Now Microsoft has revealed that the Acer development version of the headset will begin roll-out this month.
Microsoft development partners who attended the Windows Mixed Reality session at GDC this week are set to receive the Acer developer edition headset within the next few months. Other Windows game developers can sign up via the Windows Mixed Reality website.
Specifications for the Acer Windows Mixed Reality headset are as follows:
- Two high-resolution liquid crystal displays at 1440 x 1440
- Display refresh rate up to 90 Hz (native)
- Built-in audio out and microphone support through 3.5mm jack
- Single cable with HDMI 2.0 (display) and USB 3.0 (data) for connectivity
The development kit will also include documentation, access to Windows 10 Insider preview builds and a software development kit for building mixed reality applications.
VRFocus will provide you with further information on Windows Mixed Reality as it becomes available.
