First look at Windows mixed reality devices – Unboxing for Business

The Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 is here, and the focus lies on Microsoft’s push into mixed reality.

This time on Unboxing for Business we take a look at what Microsoft is doing with its array of Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Plus, we speak with Amol Shah, Microsoft Canada’s consumer PC division leader, for a deep dive into what this new strategy for augmented reality and virtual reality means for the tech giant.

With the Creators update, Microsoft is bringing in more of a 3D look and feel to Windows 10 including new tab management, built-in game broadcasting and enhanced security features such as a new Microsoft privacy dashboard. OEM partners will be releasing a series of handheld augmented reality units during the launch. Microsoft Alliance partners such as HP Inc., Acer, Lenovo, Dell and Samsung have new mixed reality products that have been simplified to contain just the headset, controllers and cables.

The Windows Mixed Reality Headsets are available today, each priced under $600 dollars here in Canada.

Last time on Unboxing for Business we took a look at the tinier version of Google’s smart home assistant – the Google Home Mini. Just what can you expect from the affordable device, check out our video here to find out.
