Samsung's Mixed Reality Headset Has AMOLED Displays, Spatial Audio

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.

Update, 11:00 a.m. PT: This headset is now official, and we're at an event right now in San Francisco learning about it.

Intel says it's planning to deliver a Windows Mixed Reality experience for the Winter Olympics next year. Indeed, aside from Halo: Recruit, Microsoft also announced that developers will finally be able to access the preview for Windows Mixed Reality SteamVR (which it announced over a month ago) starting today. The Samsung HMD Odyssey (information about which leaked recently thanks to "The Walking Cat" on Twitter) will be available for $499. The team will be spending a lot of the next few weeks talking to the AltspaceVR community and finding out how they can build an even better place to hang out in virtual reality. It's called the HMD Odyssey, and it's the first Samsung VR headset to run on the Windows Mixed Reality platform. You can preorder your Windows Mixed Reality headsets at Microsoft Store and Microsoft.com. The headset offers a 110-degree field of view, and its spatial AKG headphones are created to put sound all around you. Microsoft's goal here is to foster an integrated mixed reality ecosystem that all feeds back into Windows 10.

The French police have prevented a terrorist attack at the stadium
French politicians are set to vote later on a new counter-terror law created to end the country's two-year state of emergency. Police found two cylinders of gas in the hall of a building in the city's 16th arrondissement and two others on the sidewalk.

Designed and engineered in partnership with Microsoft, the Samsung HMD Odyssey features dual AMOLED displays, screen tech Samsung is known for in its Galaxy line of smartphones. "With the widest field of view, built-in spatial sound and easy setup, the Samsung HMD Odyssey transports consumers to incredible virtual reality experiences". Halo: Recruit, teased at an event in San Francisco, gave us our first look at the popular game in mixed reality, with users getting a fuller look on october 17. We've definitely preferred having them on the Oculus Rift, compared to the HTC Vive and PlayStation VR, which require you to plug in additional parts.

All the headsets come with the same motion controllers.
