Lenovo's Mixed Reality Headset Is Called The Explorer

Lenovo inadvertently revealed yesterday during a product launch at the IFA conference that the Fall Creators Update would arrive starting on October 17.

Microsoft still has yet to deem the Fall Creators Update as being feature-complete (or, as many of us still prefer to call it, RTM), but does plan to do so in September, hence its 1709 nomenclature. Among the few it mentioned, Windows Story Remix will allow users automatically turn a collage of images into a cohesive narrative.

Applications for the mixed-reality headsets include games, education and video entertainment in immersive, 360-degree virtual environments. Terry Myerson, head of the Windows group at Microsoft, promised that this fourth update to Windows 10 would be the best yet. Then it will hit Windows Update.

What are your thoughts on new Mixed Reality devices?

OneDrive Files On-Demand - access files stored online as if they were stored locally. We have previously seen Halo augmented reality experiences for marketing purposes, so this Halo mixed reality experience could be much like that. There's also a new Find my Pen feature, which basically just tells you the last place that you were when you used your pen. Other new features will include the integrated eye tracking (in beta) and improvements to stylus support.

Improved Windows Defender - updated with "cloud intelligence", enabling new defenses against ransomware and exploits.

Microsoft's been pushing mixed reality hard, introducing Paint 3D earlier this year, and the Fall Creators Update's View 3D adds the ability to view mixed reality creations on your device's screen if it's equipped with a camera.

The Halo franchise is coming to Windows Mixed Reality in some form or another, Microsoft has confirmed. As part of this effort, the first batch of Windows Mixed Reality headsets will be available on October 17. You can get the headset by itself for $350, but if you want it bundled with the motion controller, it will cost you $450... the same price as the PlayStation VR bundle or $50 less than the Oculus Rift bundle.

The first batch of Windows Mixed Reality headsets will also ship on October 17, confirmed Myerson.
