Still, Microsoft picked the branding since it may eventually incorporate other sensory aspects of augmented reality into the headset, hence the mixed reality name.
343 Industries explain more about what you can expect from mixed reality and their new Halo Recruit experience. Acer, Asus, and a few other companies have released headsets that use Microsoft's inside-out tracking technology, but the HMD Odyssey is the first to combine it with OLED displays. The Korean company will bring to the table a handset for a room-scale virtual reality. That's a bummer, but on the bright side, it might not be a long wait-Microsoft announced at a cozy press event in San Francisco that its mixed reality platform is now open to Steam VR developers. Today, Samsung launches its own stand-alone version of new VR headset (Samsung HMD Odyssey VR) which works as a stand-alone device.
"The HMD Odyssey has a pair of 3.5" AMOLED displays with a resolution of 1440x1600 per eye. Or titles now available in market can give you a 1400 x 1400 display resolution and a 95 degree viewing angle per eye. It also has builtin AKG headphones and Samsung claims that it offers 360 degrees spatial sound. "Working with Microsoft to include SteamVR compatibility with these devices is also a big step in growing VR as an open platform for developers and consumers". That is slightly less attractive following the price cuts to both the HTC Vive ($599) and Oculus Rift ($499) this past summer, but save for mobile implementations like Samsung's Gear VR, the cost of entry is lower than it has ever been. So not only Samsung has followed the specs that were referenced by Microsoft, but they have also exceeded them. This makes the HMD Odyssey one of the best headsets, since its competitors usually come with 1440×1440 pixels or even 1080×1200 pixels per eye.
It remains to be seen how Microsoft will actually market Mixed Reality, but with the hardware that will be available and the understanding of the "virtual reality" term, the company would arguably be wise to quietly ignore the "MR" term and stick with "VR" when putting these things in front of consumers.
