Home » Dell’s Visor can interact with other mixed reality headsets

Dell’s newest Windows Mixed Reality headset is called the Visor, and the company is one of the first ones to enter this particular market. The Dell Visor headset will feature the very same technology that is found in the HoloLens, and will be available this October for $349.99 or in a bundle with two controllers. The device itself will be priced at $499.99. The controllers are also sold separately for $99.99.

The Oculus Rift shifts with controllers for $399. With such similar pricing, Microsoft and Dell will need a good pitch to convince users to choose their device over the competitors’ ones.

The Dell Visor

The Visor features a flip-up visor, some padding for the head, weight balancing, and a thumbwheel band adjustment and weight balancing. Its cables are routed to the back, and the device’s white finish is said to be durable and clean. We will see if it will work as promised.

The headset’s inside is the fascinating part of the device. There are tracking cameras with a panoramic view which allows the headset to scan all surroundings. The company said that it included “platform-agnostic communication” support which would offer users the possibility to interact with people using other mixed reality headsets.

Dell first announced its plans to build a headset back in May and the new platform was announced at the same time. Microsoft calls it Mixed Reality and even if there are cameras on the front of the headsets that might allow for something similar to an experience that is half AR and half VR, the early demos of the platform have just shown only VR experiences until now.

It seems like this is all we’re getting from the first wave of headsets.
