Microsoft’s New Reality - HoloLens Comes To UK

This is a big week for virtual reality, with Sony's PlayStation VR headset going on sale on Thursday.

But Microsoft, which has steered clear of VR, is going down a different path with what it calls mixed reality - a term it prefers for some reason to augmented reality.

It has just announced that its HoloLens headset is coming to six new countries, including the UK. Pre-orders open today and deliveries will follow in late-November.

The headset is packed with sensors and delivers to users a view of the real world overlaid with virtual objects in the form of hologram-like graphics.
