(Variety)  Microsoft announced at the recent Game Developers Conference that it is bringing its Windows Mixed Reality technology to the Xbox next year. Microsoft will launch mixed reality content on the Xbox One, and the next version of the Xbox, code-named “Project Scorpio,” in 2018.
Windows Mixed Reality is the technology that powers Microsoft’s Hololens augmented reality headset, as well as headsets from other manufacturers that combine augmented and virtual reality experiences. Microsoft provided some additional details on one of the upcoming Mixed Reality headsets this week. Acer’s Windows Mixed Reality Development Edition headset, which Microsoft is going to ship to developers in the coming weeks, combines a VR-headset-like display with external cameras for experiences that include both computer-generated and real-world images.
