  • Lenovo's mixed reality headset offers built-in tracking for $350

Microsoft has confirmed what leaks have suggested for a little while (thanks, Lenovo!).

The Lenovo Explorer will be sold for $350 alone and $450 with two motion controllers, but it doesn't yet have a release date, but speculation indicates the headset will launch this Fall to accompany the Windows 10 Creator's Update. Microsoft started finalizing the release last week, and we'd expect this release to follow the pattern seen in previous Windows updates: the final build will be done some time in September and roll out to members of the Windows Insider program's fast, slow, and release preview rings.

Aside from gaming and Mixed Reality, there are plenty of improvements for those that just want to get things done.

According to executive vice president of Windows and devices Terry Myerson, the Fall Creators Update will also support eye-tracking, which makes it easier for those who can't use their limbs to navigate the OS.

The update will be rolled out over a number of months, as Microsoft upgrades Windows 10 machines in phases. When activated, Game Mode will let users play their games with the full processing power of their Windows 10 device.

We have reimagined our Photos Application to deliver remixed experiences for telling your stories with photos, videos, music, 3D, and even inking. The release of the Fall Creators Update also signals the arrival of some of the very first Mixed Reality headsets from third-party manufacturers. Files are retrieved from OneDrive whenever the user needs them.

Showcased at their respective makers' IFA Berlin booths one by one, where prospective buyers learned about precise retail costs and vague release timelines, the five headsets have been brought together by project coordinator Microsoft for a little extra info.

For those without a headset, there will be a Mixed Reality viewer within Windows 10 on desktop. And, if you love these Xbox play anywhere games, coming on November 7 you can play them on the most powerful console on the planet, Xbox One X.

Security features in the Fall Creators Update include a smarter Windows Defender thanks to cloud intelligence. Its predecessor, Windows 10 Anniversary Update, a k a 1607 for July 2016, didn't begin rolling out until August.
