Asus Shares Its Microsoft Mixed Reality Headset

Asus drops details on its contribution to Microsoft's mission to democratize virtual reality.


The democratization of virtual reality is upon us. For the benefit of consumers, the more the merrier when it comes to just about any industry. Virtual reality is one such industry that is on the verge of democratization and Asus has revealed their own addition to headset options.

A handful of companies were mentioned when Microsoft announced a line of mixed reality headsets coming to market in October this year and Asus has shed some light on their contribution. Their creation doesn’t carry a unique name like Dell’s Visor, the company instead going with the incredibly default name of Asus Windows Mixed Reality Headset.

Bit-Tech reports that Asus’ headset will retail for €449 (roughly $534) and come with a pair of motion controllers at that price point. It has the similar features as other headsets in this first wave of Microsoft Mixed Reality including a 1440 x 1440 display, an internal sensor, and 90hz refresh rate. To get an idea of what you’ll be playing with these new headsets, take a look at our report on the companies working with Microsoft on content.
