Microsoft held its Surface 2016 event Wednesday in New York City where the company focused on Paint 3D, augmented reality, virtual reality and more. As part of its big effort, Microsoft announced it is partnering with five different brands that will ship VR headsets for the next Windows 10 update.
Microsoft announced that HP, Dell, Lenovo, Asus and Acer are currently working on VR headsets that will cost $299 and will include inside-out tracking sensors, just like those on the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.
The Windows 10 Creators Update is also coming next spring, so you expect to buy these VR headsets when Microsoft ships this update. The company also demoed Windows 10 apps in virtual reality. You can interact with apps that are projected on a wall.
In addition, Microsoft is also working on the HoloLens, an augmented reality headset that lets you view virtual 3D objects on top of the real world. During the conference, the company also demoed Microsoft Edge in the HoloLens.
