Microsoft announced Samsung HMD Odyssey MR headset

Former Intel CEO Paul Otellini passes away at 66

It allows you to enter a world via a VR headset where thousands of other real people hang out virtually. That's right; despite Microsoft insisting that we call its new hardware Mixed Reality, it seems it's OK to refer to them as VR after all.

Microsoft has announced the latest Mixed Reality Headset for its augmented reality experiences, this time from Samsung dubbed the HMD Odyssey.

Microsoft, he said, has crafted an entirely new reality for Windows; "We didn't want to just build a new operating system". For example, gamers who can't attend the next Xbox event in person may be able to do so using a headset and this app.

The device gives users very best experience and is created to give a comfortable and snug fit. Thanks to their inclusion, the Odyssey should work with most SteamVR games when support rolls out later this year. At Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality event, conducted today both Microsoft and Samsung have officially disclosed it at last.




Halo: Recruit will be available as a free download on the headset, and it will apparently be a "VR environment of characters in the popular game". "Halo Recruit" was developed in partnership with our good friends, Endeavor One. With inside-out position tracking, users are not restricted to a limited space during their virtual reality experience.

It's not the Halo experience that everyone would have expected, but it's a fun little introduction into the Halo universe that shows off what the Mixed Reality headset can do. The Samsung HMD Odyssey will be available later this year in the US, China, Korea, Brazil and Hong Kong, with pre-orders beginning in the US only on October 3rd.

Available for $499.99 on November 6th in the United States, the headset and bundled controllers are primarily being marketed as a gaming device on Samsung's website, and appears alongside two Odyssey branded laptops that will support its Windows Mixed Reality Ultra tier of graphical capability.
