When the technology industry began to adopt Virtual Reality, Microsoft was one of the few companies lacking a game plan outside of HoloLens. However, things changed with the announcement of Mixed Reality, a blend between Virtual Reality and the technology that powers HoloLens.
In a bid to keep up with the competition and to provide something new to the market, Microsoft is pushing its Mixed Reality ideas to its third-party partners around the world. The planned devices from Asus and HP will cost less to own than the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. Furthermore, there’s no need for an ultra-powerful computer to get great results.
