Many people are excited about the upcoming consumer release of the various Windows 10 Mixed Reality (MR) headsets. Its good news if you are one of those people, since pre-orders for the Dell Visor MR headset are now open.
Due to begin shipping on 17th October, the headset is available for pre-order in the US from Dell.Com, or in the UK from Dell.co.uk or PC World. The device is set to be priced at $349.99 (USD) for the headset, $99.99 for the controllers, or $449.99 for a bundle.
Similar to other Windows 10 MR devices, the Dell Visor offers a resolution of 1440×1440 per eye, dual 2.89” LCD panels, a 110 degree field of view and a refresh rate of 90Hz. Using similar technology to what is available in the Microsoft HoloLens, the Dell Visor uses inside-out tracking, so no additional cameras or tracking base stations are needed. The headset has a flip-up hinge so users can quickly check their real-life surroundings when needed.
The controllers are fully tracker and offer force-feedback, a thumbstick and track pad and is capable of 6Dof. As we have previously reported, Windows 10 MR devices will be compatible with VR content on Steam, as well as VR and MR content from the Windows Store. Like most Windows 10 Mr devices, the Dell Visor can use integrated graphics on lower-spec PC set-ups for some simple VR applications.
Upon launch on October, the device will be available from the Microsoft Store, Best Buy Stores and BestBuy.Com as well as directly from the Dell website.
