Mixed reality for the masses

Immersive experiences are in demand. And the upcoming Windows Mixed Reality headsets starting at $299 will pair with Windows Mixed Reality-ready PCs starting at $499. These price points will make mixed reality accessible to more users.

Untether your customers

Windows Mixed Reality releases your apps—and your customers—from the limitations of the flat screen. Create fully untethered experiences on HoloLens, the world’s first self-contained, holographic computer. Or add new depth and immersion to your PC software when using a Windows Mixed Reality headset.

Familiar toolset

We made it simple: The Windows 10 SDK lets you apply your skills to PCs, HoloLens, Xbox and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Use the same app model, tools, and UX to develop for all Windows devices—you won’t have to start from square one to get your mixed reality software up and running.

Why Windows Mixed Reality?

Natural interactions

Give your users the freedom to interact with your software using gesture, gaze, and voice—as well as traditional inputs like mice, keyboards, and controllers.

Simpler setup

Inside-out tracking lets your users jump right in without setting up room-based gear, and eliminates room size requirements so they can experience your app almost anywhere.

HoloLens and beyond

Microsoft HoloLens is the first self-contained holographic computer, and a broad range of new devices with a broad range of capabilities are on the way. More devices means more users and more demand.

Code with your headset on

Windows Mixed Reality improves your workflow between coding and testing. View your 2D desktop from within your headset or view your physical surroundings without fully removing your headset.
