Mixed Reality to XBox

Expanding market for AR display

Thanks Mike.

Engadget: Mixed reality to Xbox

Last year, Microsoft revealed that it would be opening up its Windows Holographic Platform to other hardware manufacturers, and at CES, we got to take a look at a few different Windows VR headsets. At GDC 2017, Microsoft revealed yet more plans for its mixed reality platform. While its headsets are strictly for the PC for now, they would soon be coming to the Xbox -- as well as Project Scorpio -- in 2018.

It's unclear yet on what this will actually look like -- will there be an Xbox VR headset? -- but it's certainly implied. "We're also excited to share that Windows Mixed Reality experiences will light up on other devices over time, beyond desktop and Microsoft HoloLens," said the company in a statement. "Our plan is to bring mixed reality content to the Xbox One family of devices, including Project Scorpio, in 2018."
