Lenovo Explorer Mixed Reality Headset


Virtual reality used to mean you had to shell out the big bucks for the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive or go mobile with the Samsung Gear VR. But now, with the release of the Windows 10 Fall Creator’s Update, VR will be more accessible, thanks to the Lenovo Explorer Mixed Reality Headset.

The Lenovo Explorer Mixed Reality Headset is designed to be a natural extension of your computer. With it, you’ll be able to watch your favorite shows in a virtual environment, play VR games, travel the world through holo-tours, watch 3D, 360°, and 4K videos, browse websites, or even be productive in Microsoft Office suite.

Housing dual 2.89" LCD screens, each eye will get a resolution of 1440 x 1440, for a total of 2880 x 1440. The field of view is 110°. The Lenovo Explorer headset may not be wireless, but it does have a lengthy 13.1' Y-cable with built-in USB 3.0 and HDMI 2.0 connectors. You can use the Lenovo Explorer headset in a 11.5 x 11.5' area without the need for additional external sensors.

The Lenovo Explorer Mixed Reality Headset provides a variety of ways that you can interact. There are optional Motion Controllers from Lenovo that provide a natural, fine-tuned experience. These controllers use Bluetooth wireless technology to connect. You can also use a Microsoft Xbox controller, as well as the classic keyboard-and-mouse combo. If you’re looking for a more hands-free approach, Cortana Voice can provide limited interactions.

Please note that Windows 10 Fall Creator’s Update is required. To find out if your current computer’s specs meet the requirements for Windows Mixed Reality, please consult Microsoft’s official website.
