At Intel’s Developer Conference today, Microsoft’s Terry Myerson announced that the company  will be bringing the Windows Holographic “shell” to all Windows 10 PCs next year. The “shell” will allow users to enjoy Windows 10 on a virtual reality headset such as the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. Basically, you will be able to enjoy the full power of Windows 10 right on your virtual reality headset, and use some of the main features in Windows 10 such as Universal Windows Apps on their VR headsets.

Microsoft is yet to announce when exactly the feature will be available for Windows 10 PCs, but we will let you know once it’s available. For those wondering, Microsoft stated that the new shell will be available to all Windows 10 PCs.
