Microsoft's Windows 10 Fall Creators Update rollout to kick off October 17

Lenovo Explorer Boldly Goes Into the World of Mixed Reality

And if you don't have a headset, you'll also be able to check out some experiences in 2D with the Mixed Reality Viewer. The Lenovo Explorer headset connects to a modern Windows 10-based PC using USB and HDMI cables and blends virtual reality with the real world.

That's £399 including the standard design motion controllers as part of a bundle, an expensive enough add-on in their own right. And as Windows developers don't have to make any considerations for hardware choices - the various headset options from Acer, Lenovo, Dell, Asus and HP are all cross-compatible - there's a lot of choice if the idea of mixed reality appeals. We'd certainly hope so.

The biggest change in Windows 10 is the inclusion of Windows Mixed Reality.

That's a bit later than expected, as this past April Microsoft committed to twice-yearly Windows 10 updates in March and September, in perpetuity.

Guillem Balague reveals three Arsenal players spoke to Thomas Lemar above move
The Gunners made three bids previously for Lemar , the highest of £50m, which were all rejected by the Ligue 1 champions. But Lemar remained uncertain on Arsenal and is said to prefer Liverpool as a potential destination.

Myerson said those dealing with Lou Gehrig's disease would welcome the update, as might other physically challenged Windows users, because Microsoft has included Eye Control.

It laid the foundation for a more creative operating system with the Creators Update earlier this year, but is now building on that with new 3D features, updates to media applications and gaming enhancements. Considering that Microsoft confirmed the date today, Lenovo might edit the release a second time to add the official date to it again.

Microsoft's new software release shrinks the laborious set-up of VR headsets for users to around 10 minutes, down from two to three hours now and helps cut the costs of headsets, in a step towards making such technology more mainstream, they said. Another feature that is delayed is the Clipboard feature, which allows users to copy data between phones and PCs. If you don't get the update but have a Mixed Reality Headset then simply plugging the device in will prompt the update.

The Fall Creators Update will roll-out from 17 October 2017. And, if you love these Xbox play anywhere games, coming on November 7 you can play them on the most powerful console on the planet, Xbox One X.
