Samsung Comes To VR World with their Out of this World Odyssey

Samsung HMD Odyssey

Samsung has thus far been content to poke at VR with its smartphone-centered Gear VR platform, but the Korean manufacturer is set to join the PC MR party with the HMD Odyssey, which is the highest-spec Windows headset we have seen thus far.

On the more upbeat side is market research firm SuperData. Gamers were some of the first adopters of VR and now Samsung has unveiled a "mixed reality" headset, which is designed with them in mind. The inside-out tracking of the Windows headsets also makes for easier installation: no need to mount base stations on the walls or anything like that; just plug the headset in and go. She also added that Samsung wants to work with Microsoft in order to shape the future of VR.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May handed 'P45' during speech
The Conservative leader used her speech to shoulder the blame for the election, and received several ovations from the audience. He claimed Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson , who has clashed with May over Brexit, told him to do it.

Less positive is IHS Markit. Still, Microsoft picked the branding since it may eventually incorporate other sensory aspects of augmented reality into the headset, hence the mixed reality name. As a developer-facing platform, "Mixed Reality" is a sensible term to use: Microsoft's APIs support a wide range of devices and use cases. Unlike the most of the VR headset, this also requires a high-end computer or laptop with powerful hardware, CPU and GPU with at least 8 GB of RAM to have a seamless uninterrupted VR headset. The app's primary trademark was its virtual online events, which featured standup comedy and talks with celebrities such as Reggie Watts, Al Roker, and Bill Nye. The fact that HMD Odyssey has built in headphones is a plus, being the only headset to feature them. Augmented reality, or AR, projects digital images into real-life scenes usually viewed through a camera lens. These headsets offer Virtual Reality experiences - not what the industry would consider Mixed Reality (e.g., the Hololens). Instead it appears that this free 5-minute experience is the beginning of more mixed reality experimentation with partner studio Endeavor One.
