Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) is Microsoft’s route into virtual reality (VR) experiences for Windows, without the need for a ultra-fast and expensive PC setup. There are a variety of third-party headset options, of which the Asus HC102 is perhaps the most interesting – offering a more striking design than its Acer, Dell Visor and Lenovo Explorer competition.
However, as we criticised with the already-available Acer headset, with WMR in its early days there’s not a great deal that can be done with the system. The Asus headset won’t be available until December 2017 – by which time we might have Steam VR availability and more appropriate applications to access – but is it worth waiting for, or does one of the already established headsets, such as Oculus Rift, make greater sense to buy instead?
