"The Lenovo Explorer Mixed Reality headset is designed as an affordable headset for your PC: You can access Microsoft Office suite, browse online or watch shows in a virtual home office environment, play virtual reality games, explore and discover through tours, and enhance the video-watching experience via 3D, 360-degree and 4K videos", Lenovo said in an official press release. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update also sees the loss of Paint, the 3D Builder app, Outlook Express, EMET, and various other features. With the Fall Creators Update, we are introducing some fun, new ways to get creative.

Mixed reality is the term Microsoft uses to describe software that covers both augmented and virtual reality.

The company has also improved Game Mode with the FCU, allowing you to "use the full processing power of your device as if it was an Xbox game console", from a button on the Game Bar. Acer, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo are the manufacturers that Microsoft has partnered with for the new headsets.

But the big additions are gaming and mixed reality - check out our review here. Headsets and motion controllers (starting at $299) from these companies are expected to be release along with the Fall Creators Update on October 17, notes PCMag.

Other updates include a new smart pen system which enables the tracking of the implement if it is lost, along with general security updates. But with a price tag of $3,000, Windows-based mixed reality was a niche market made up of tech-savvy enterprises, developers and deep-pocketed enthusiasts. Its predecessor, Windows 10 Anniversary Update, a k a 1607 for July 2016, didn't begin rolling out until August. Are you willing to buy one? "One that is easy to setup, not requiring you to mount cameras around the room, just put the headset on your head, plug it into your PC and get started, leaving your hands free to interact with the mixed world", Myerson continued.
