Lenovo's mixed reality headset offers built-in tracking for $350

It promises improvements to photo editing, gaming, security, accessibility, and will introduce Windows Mixed Reality.

Today, we're pleased to announce that the next update of Windows 10, the Fall Creators Update, will be available worldwide October 17. Now with the Fall Creators Update, it is adding View 3D to allow users to view mixed reality creations on their screen, provided they have a camera. Further, users can save all of their work in OneDrive Files On-Demand and access these cloud files on their PC anytime. Inputs will also change, with support for eye-tracking and the ability to more widely and more easily use digital pens.

In a blog post, Terry Myerson, Executive VP of the Windows and Devices Group, discussed all of the ways that the Fall Creators Update will improve Windows 10. Users should expect each feature update to receive 18 months of support before Microsoft require users to be on a current release in order to continue receiving updates and support. Asus won't be releasing its Windows Mixed Reality headset until Spring 2018, despite showing off its unique polygon design at IFA this week. Headsets will have a starting as low as $299.

Japan, South Korea agree to seek stronger United Nations resolution against N. Korea
The Government says the United Kingdom is seeking to "cement its position as Japan's strongest security partner in Europe". In terms of what's we're doing, we're looking to work with our partners.

Unfortunately, the new release won't include one of the more exciting features that Microsoft has planned. "By combining our physical and digital worlds, we believe mixed reality is the next step in the evolution of human computing", said Terry Myerson, executive vice president of the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft, in a September 1 announcement.

Lenovo actually showed off its headset during IFA 2017 called The Explorer, which will cost $350. Windows users and administrators can enforce the upgrade to install it as early as possible, or wait until Windows Update selects the PC for the update.

Amid all the talk about virtual reality and augmented reality, Microsoft (MSFT) wants consumers to embrace "mixed reality", its take on VR technology. For those, who plan to use apps designed for the WMR platform, Lenovo will offer Motion Controllers (similar to those supplied with other WMR HDMs), whereas for gamers the company will offer an Xbox One controller.
