The first of the Windows Mixed Reality headsets for PCs are now being put up for preorder, with the Dell Visor being one of the first of its kind. The all-white mixed reality headset, as Dell puts it, has been built keeping design and comfort essentials in mind, so that it facilitates usage for long durations.
Dell is one of the several partners in Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality program, alongside the likes of Lenovo and HP. The Dell Visor comes with 360-degree viewing of content, and two 2.89” 1440×1440-pixel displays that facilitate it. Each of these displays have 90Hz refresh rate, and the headset also comes with an adjustable headband and face cushions to ease the pressure on the face. It also comes with additional controllers that will provide haptic feedback to users. Connectivity options include HDMI 2.0, USB 3.0 and a 3.5mm audio port. The headset also has two monochrome cameras to view and gauge the space around the user, and a thumbwheel allows the headset to be adjusted to the required size. The Visor includes a gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer to aid tracking.
The Dell Visor will ship from October 17, at a price of $349.99 for just the headset, and $99.99 for the controllers. The Dell Visor bundle with controllers will cost $449.99, and the Windows Mixed Reality headset will be available across Dell.com, Microsoft.com and Best Buy stores, once it ships.
