First Windows Mixed Reality headsets to be released this October

Lenovo Explorer hands-on

The release of the Fall Creators Update also signals the arrival of some of the very first Mixed Reality headsets from third-party manufacturers. All of this innovation will be brought to life by a range of beautifully designed, and feature rich modern devices available from our hardware partners this holiday.

Emoji Picker will let you find the emoji faster in any of the Windows 10 apps. As "launch" and "release" don't always coincide with Microsoft products, Server 1709 also will likely begin rolling out to users in October. Windows Defender gets an upgrade, as does the Photos app, and there's better support for getting OneDrive files on the fly. Microsoft, in its infinite wisdom, made a decision to bury the feature when Windows 10 was introduced, much to the dismay of many users.

Microsoft has been testing several of these features in its Windows Insider Preview Programme, including eye control. With the Fall Creators Update, we've updated Game Mode, which allows your games to use the full processing power of your device as if it was an Xbox game console, right from a new button on the Game bar. This will be ideal for those users who are planning on playing Xbox Play Anywhere games. Last month, it moved testers onto separate programmes so it could ensure a stable version when Fall Creators Update was ready for release.

Get ready for new 'Star Wars' toys: 'Force Friday II' is tonight
The list is massive , especially in the USA where everyone from Build-a-Bear to Walmart is getting in on the Star Wars action. And REMEMBER, most importantly - if you've no ticket, there's NO WAY you're getting in, so here's what you have to do.

Other updates include a new smart pen system which enables the tracking of the implement if it is lost, along with general security updates. We have previously seen Halo augmented reality experiences for marketing purposes, so this Halo mixed reality experience could be much like that. That allows eye controllers to replace mouse and keyboard. In April, the company promised to come up with twice-yearly Windows 10 updates in March and September. The most affordable Mixed Reality headset will be the one from Acer, priced at $299, followed by HP's device priced at $329; while Lenovo and Dell will price theirs at $349.

The biggest change in Windows 10 is the inclusion of Windows Mixed Reality. And if you don't have a headset, you'll also be able to check out some experiences in 2D with the Mixed Reality Viewer. Considering that Microsoft confirmed the date today, Lenovo might edit the release a second time to add the official date to it again.

While the HoloLens, which is aimed at developers and used by NASA and Audi among others, costs thousands of pounds, the new headsets and motion controller bundle will be priced at £399.
