You can now pre-order Acer and HP’s Mixed Reality headsets (specs and links)

Developers can now pre-order Developer Edition Mixed Reality headsets from HP and Acer from the Microsoft Store in USA and Canada.

The HP Windows Mixed Reality Headset Developer Edition is priced at $329 USD and has the following specs:

  • Two high-resolution liquid crystal displays at 1440 x 1440
  • Front hinged display
  • 95 degrees horizontal field of view
  • Display refresh rate up to 90 Hz (native)
  • Built-in audio out and microphone support through 3.5mm jack
  • Single cable with HDMI 2.0 (display) and USB 3.0 (data) for connectivity
  • Inside-out tracking
  • 4.0m/0.6m removable cable
  • Double-padded headband and easy adjustment knob for all day comfort

The headset can be found in the Microsoft Store here (USA / Canada).

The somewhat less pretty Acer Mixed Reality headset costs $299 and has the following specs:

  • Two high-resolution liquid crystal displays at 1440 x 1440
  • Front hinged display
  • 95 degree horizontal field of view
  • Display refresh rate up to 90 Hz (native)
  • Built-in audio out and microphone support through 3.5mm jack
  • Single cable with HDMI 2.0 (display) and USB 3.0 (data) for connectivity
  • Inside-out tracking
  • 4.0 meter cable

It appears to be lighter, have but less padding and be less adjustable.

The headset can be found in the Microsoft Store here (USA / Canada).

Both headsets, which ship in August 2017,  feature state-of-the-art, inside-out tracking so you don’t need to set up external cameras or IR emitters to have a truly immersive experience as you move with six degrees of freedom (6DoF) in mixed reality.

Developers can visit the Windows Dev Center to view documentation, download tools and join the community of Windows Mixed Reality developers.
