"Microsoft has partnered with HP, Lenovo, Dell, Acer, and Asus to produce VR headsets that plug into Windows 10 PCs and provide the Windows Holographic shell and experience," technology website TheVerge reported on Monday.
Both the events are designed for hardware manufacturers to better understand the software plans for Windows Holographic, a mixed reality platform built around the API of Windows 10.
If the Microsoft can convince VR headset makers to let Windows Holographic power its headsets, then the company can create a platform around VR to sell games and apps all powered by Windows 10.
The initial devices will start shipping after the Windows 10 Creators Update is made available to download in March 2017 and will function like VR headsets that connect to a PC, and will support six degrees of freedom and inside-out tracking.
