Latest update of Microsoft Windows 10 to be released Oct.2017

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

It's available from a wide range of partners around the world, like Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo with headsets starting as low as $299.

Myerson said those dealing with Lou Gehrig's disease would welcome the update, as might other physically challenged Windows users, because Microsoft has included Eye Control. Among the few it mentioned, Windows Story Remix will allow users automatically turn a collage of images into a cohesive narrative.

Microsoft announced their new Windows 10 Mixed Reality initiative for the home computing platform.

"Our mission at Microsoft is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more", said Windows Chief Terry Myerson.

Technically billed as mixed reality products, these will essentially work the same way as a Rift or Vive, beaming the user into a "new reality" by combining "physical and digital worlds". Access to the Windows Store is also an important part of running the latest versions of Windows 10. Perhaps the most exciting is the addition of Windows Mixed Reality support, bringing immersive experiences to most everyone with a Windows 10 PC.


The Photos app will also be able to deliver what Microsoft calls "remixed experiences". When activated, Game Mode will let users play their games with the full processing power of their Windows 10 device.

The update also comes with some improvements to Windows Ink, allowing you to mark up PDF files in the Edge browser.

Unfortunately, the new release won't include one of the more exciting features that Microsoft has planned. But with a price tag of $3,000, Windows-based mixed reality was a niche market made up of tech-savvy enterprises, developers and deep-pocketed enthusiasts. The Lenovo Explorer device requires a PC to operate and runs applications developed for WMR or Microsoft HoloLens and other AR/VR devices. As part of this effort, the first batch of Windows Mixed Reality headsets will be available on October 17.

For those without a headset, there will be a Mixed Reality viewer within Windows 10 on desktop. In April, the company promised to come up with twice-yearly Windows 10 updates in March and September.
