Dell has revealed its new Windows 10 mixed reality head-mounted display (HMD) at IFA.
We’ve gotten a chance to put it on ourselves and its clear the design has been built to provide not just an immersive ‘in-your-face’ VR experience, but a comfortable one, too.
The Dell Visor sports a pair of LCD panels featuring a resolution of 1,440 x 1,440, providing a suitably sharp viewing experience. The flip-up visor also allows users to easily switch between the virtual environment and real world.
Both the visor and headband are well-padded for comfort, and Dell promises there’s plenty of room so even those who wear glasses won’t find that their specs get in the way.
The headband is easily adjustable for any size head, not to mention ergonomically designed to relieve the pressure on the user’s nose and cheeks, so you can wear it for extended periods without feeling like your face is tired.
Several other convenient touches include cable management clips to keep the device’s cord out of the way, and the visor has an anti-stain coating to help it stay clean.
Expect to see the Dell Visor on shelves come October 17 with a starting price of $360 (around £280, AU$450) for the headset. The HMD will also have companion controllers similar to the Oculus Rift Touch Controller, which will retail at $100 (around £80, AU$125) separately.
Dell will also offer the Visor as a bundle with the controllers for $459 (about £360, AU$580)
This is one of a number of Windows 10 HMDs we first saw back at the start of the year.
