Last year, Microsoft promised users a number of Windows Holographic headsets from OEM partners like Acer, HP, Dell, Lenovo and 3Glasses. At CES 2017, it appears all these companies will deliver, just as promised.

Features and pricing

The glasses feature a similar, tethered-to-the-PC design and sport headbands to suspend the glasses in front of your eyes and, in most cases, allow the glasses to be flipped up to easily switch between the real world and VR at the same time. The glasses are expected to be priced somewhere around $300-$400 and should work with a $500 PC or one with the integrated graphics of laptops.

The VR glasses’ release date

Everyone expected the glasses to have arrived by the end of the first quarter of 2017 along with the Windows 10 Creators Update, but it’s obvious that won’t happen. Head of Mixed Reality and HoloLens Alex Kipman suggested in a tweet that all five headsets will arrive by the 2017 holiday season.

Acer’s Developer Edition headset will be delivered to developers in the near future while Lenovo has suggested its own headsets will be available for the Back to School season sometime around August.

Acer’s headset proves that the company has continued to make improvements regarding the usability and the performance of its devices. For instance, Acer has increased the framerate to 90fps and the tethering cord length has been also increased by 13 feet.
