The headsets, made by Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Samsung, will ship by the holidays. Each headset should provide a relatively similar experience and, with Microsoft's Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update rolling out on Oct. 17, will let you experience new ways to interact with Windows.
Early models first went on sale for developers in May.
During an early hands-on with a developer version of the Acer headset, for example, we were able to step into a digital room where we could sit at a digital desk and interact with Mixed Reality-enabled apps, including some of Microsoft's own, watch videos on a big screen and more. The experience is a hair bizarre and all takes place while you move around a virtual apartment. It's from here you can launch into other apps, too, such as games, which will probably be the main selling point for the headsets.
