IFA 2017: Lenovo announces Windows Mixed Reality headset and new 2-in-1 laptops

The Lenovo Explorer is designed to be a natural extension of your Windows 10 PC, allowing you to easily use apps, browse online, watch shows, play mixed reality games, explore and discover through holo-tours, and enhance your video-watching experience via 360° video. Unearth the hidden secrets of Machu Picchu in 1465, glide over Rome in a hot air balloon, live through the “7 minutes of terror” Mars sequence through NASA, take in a 360-degree courtside view of a live basketball game, or just watch shows in your own virtual theatre.
The headset tracks your movements with superior fidelity and spatial awareness, so you can move around naturally in an area of 3.5 by 3.5 meters (about 11.5 by 11.5 feet) without constantly reorienting yourself. No external sensors are needed, which means you can set it up in minutes by simply connecting a cable to your PC. Use the Lenovo Explorer’s optional Motion Controllers or an Xbox controller for easy navigation.
Pricing and Availability: The Lenovo Explorer will be available this holiday. Pricing for the Lenovo Explorer and Motion Controllers will start at US $449; retail pricing of the Lenovo Explorer without the Motion Controllers is $349. Pricing and availability may vary by country.
