While virtual reality has quickly started to become mainstream, mixed reality has of yet to see a release of a consumer headset based on the upcoming Windows Mixed Reality platform and HoloLens. Dell is looking to join a number of more affordable mixed reality headsets later this fall with the Dell Visor, a sleek and comfortable headset which uses the same technology as the Microsoft HoloLens.
