Samsung in Partnership with Microsoft Announced the Samsung HMD Odyssey Today”

Samsung's HMD Odyssey has been made available for pre-order on that same day, priced at $499 per unit and expected to start shipping early next month. This is an incredible product and another important step for the mixed reality journey we are on at Microsoft.

Coinciding with the WMR hardware release date, Halo Recruit will be available on 17th October. The Odyssey doesn't let you interact with virtual objects overlaid on the real world (nor is it as stylish as Hololens), but it does offer the more familiar VR interface.

High-end headsets, like Facebook-owned Oculus' Rift and the HTC Vive, require powerful Windows PCs to run.

Microsoft held a private event yesterday and announced the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

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".

For a more immersive experience, Samsung HMD Odyssey comes with a Six Degrees of Freedom (6 DOF) sensor allowing for intuitive and natural movements. This will make the headset better for content consumption and gaming. We've already seen similar products that the likes of Acer, Dell, Lenovo, ASUS, and others have been working on.

Of course, the outlook is still more favorable with Westbrook signed up for the next six seasons. The 2017-18 National Basketball Association regular season will begin on October 17.

Mixed reality headsets are compatible with the Windows Mixed Reality platform as well as Steam VR.

It should be noted that this isn't a VR Halo game as it is a short, five-minute experience created to test out VR technology.

Honestly, the industry is just genesis to figure out connecting models for virtual reality, and further developments are yet to come.

Alex Kipman, Technical Fellow of new device categories in the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft, said: "With the AltspaceVR team onboard we look forward to building the world's preeminent mixed reality community".

Windows is refining a range of VR and augmented experiences and bringing them to more affordable price points, with native Windows support.
