Acer explains a little more about their new mixed reality headset which is now available to preorder directly from the official Microsoft online store.
With Windows Mixed Reality, you can escape the everyday into a world of imagination. Personalize your virtual home with great content—travel, sports, culture, live concerts, games like Minecraft, and more. Surround yourself with apps from 20K available titles: Run movies in your virtual theater, open a browser on a second screen. It’s your own multiplex of multiple apps and you’re at the center of every adventure.
Inside-out tracking is built into your headset to deliver precise movement fidelity with no need to install hardware on your walls. Spatial audio lets you hear sounds from specific locations just like in the real world, and your advanced motion controller makes it easy to move through virtual spaces. The combined effect is a sensation where your virtual and physical worlds are in perfect sync.
