Windows 10 Creators Update
"We designed Windows 10 to empower the creator in all of us," said Yusef Mehdi, corporate VP of the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft. "To us, that means that everyone has the power to dream big, whether that involves starting a company, developing a lesson plan, inventing a product, developing or broadcasting games, or imagining a whole new world in Minecraft or mixed reality."
The Creators Update will also bring MR to the mainstream with consumer headsets expected to be available later this year from Acer Inc., ASUSTeK Computer Inc., Dell, HP and Lenovo. Acer was the first to introduce a headset based on Microsoft's MR interfaces during a Microsoft-hosted session at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) held in San Francisco in March. Microsoft is including the Acer headsets with its own MR toolkit, including SDKs to enable developers to build MR applications.
Microsoft claims the new MR headsets are plug-and-play and are the first to provide built-in inside-out tracking, not requiring users to purchase external trackers or wall sensors. The Acer MR headsets include two high-resolution 1440x1440 LCD displays with a refresh rate of up to 90Hz (native), built-in audio output, a 3.5mm jack for a microphone, and an HDMI 2.0 cable for display and support for USB 3.0 data connectivity.
