Samsung HMD Odyssey Introduces the Ultimate Windows Mixed Reality Experience

Samsung HMD Odyssey Introduces the Ultimate Windows Mixed Reality Experience

The Samsung HMD Odyssey comes with integrated AKG headphones and array mics for voice commands, as well as two motion controllers. The headset, whose visor shows computer-generated images projected onto objects in the wearer's environment without obscuring the view of the real world completely, was subsequently offered for sale to developers and businesses. The latest entrant in this space is Samsung, with its $499 Odyssey.

The VR suite is just like being in your own home, blanks walls ready to decorate and you can decorate as you wish.

Facebook, another company without its own smartphone operating system, also is betting on VR that works on standalones headsets build by its Oculus subsidiary.

PC makers Dell, HP, Acer and Lenovo also will be making VR headsets created to work with Windows 10 machines.

According to Samsung, the Windows Mixed Reality and Windows Mixed Reality Ultra badges will highlight devices "that provide great Windows Mixed Reality experiences" and "a curated list of hero devices will be tested, qualified for getting the badges this Holiday".

Iran, Iraq forces to hold joint border drills after Kurd vote
That's due to tensions over an independence referendum held this week in Iraq's Kurdish region and disputed territories. On Saturday, Erdogan said Iraqi Kurdistan "will pay a price" for the "unacceptable" referendum , without elaborating.

Yesterday, Microsoft announced it will launch Windows Mixed Reality on October 17. We've already seen similar products that the likes of Acer, Dell, Lenovo, ASUS, and others have been working on. The headset is available for pre-order from today in the U.S. only and will be available in the U.S., Hong-Kong, China, Korea, and Brazil later this year.

Most of the people raised a doubt whether it is of Virtual reality. It is ensuring Windows Mixed Reality headsets will be compatible with existing VR experiences and games, particularly those on the SteamVR store, but on top of that you'll be able to take advantage of "mixed reality" experiences which layer virtual elements on top of the real world.
