The Taiwanese tech brand, Acer, launched the first Windows Mixed Reality headset in India on December 9 at the Grand Finale of its Predator league in Bengaluru.
The announced product offers a combination of features from both Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), allowing users to interact innovatively with software.
To do so with the device, they can use several different options (gesture, gaze, and voice), while also having the opportunity to turn to traditional peripherals like mice, keyboards, and controllers.
Specifications-wise, the Acer Windows Mixed Reality headset sports two front 2.89-inch high-resolution LCD panels with a 95-degree field of view, offering a 1440x1440 resolution on each panel and 90Hz refresh rate, producing what the brand claims is an immersive VR experience.
For ease of use, the Mixed Reality headset comes with a 13-foot cable and several connectivity ports (HDMI 2.0, and USB 3.0).
When it comes to pricing, the base model sits at $299 and $399 for the upgraded variant that offers a bundled pair of wireless controllers.
All in all, this product looks quite promising, showing a lot of potential for a wide array of areas in the future, while also serving as a starting point for a new trend that changes the way people interact with their computers and devices.
