      #49916 - 10/04/17 02:08 PM

Acer America announced its new Acer Windows Mixed Reality HMDs are now available for pre-order by consumers in the United States for $39999 (MSRP). The headsets will ship Oct. 17th, come bundled with two wireless motion controllers and pair right out-of-the-box with Windows Mixed Reality-ready PCs. They deliver a thrilling and immersive virtual experience, enabling people to virtually tour travel destinations, get inside exciting games, view popular events and even travel across time and space within their own home. Here's more info:

The Acer Windows Mixed Reality HMD lets customers interact with software using gesture, gaze and voice, while also having the option to use traditional inputs like mice, keyboards and controllers. The bundled Acer motion controllers use Bluetooth wireless technology, so gamers can take action and interact with digital objects in mixed reality. They come with a Windows 10 button, touchpad, grab button and constellation lights that look cool and serve to sync the headset with the controllers in the virtual space. With inside-out tracking, the camera is on the headset, so there is no need to drill holes in a wall or set up extraneous hardware. As soon as the headset connects to a Windows Mixed Reality-ready PC, it installs the required software, making it possible to experience mixed reality almost anywhere. The 6-degrees of freedom positional tracking includes forward/back, up/down, left/right as well as pitch, yaw and roll. The headset comes with a 13-foot cable allowing a wide range movement and connects to a PC via HDMI 2.0, while a USB 3.0 connector downloads data.

Acer's Windows Mixed Reality HMD is lightweight at just 1.34 lbs. A simple adjustment of the headband ensures the perfect fit, which is double-padded with sweat-resistant material for comfort and durability. Two front-hinged 2.89-inch high-resolution liquid crystal displays provide a wide 95-degree field of view and sport a 2880 x 1440 resolution. A fast refresh rate of up to 90Hz delivers clear and realistic images for a fantastic mixed reality experience.

Content is available from the Windows Store. This library is constantly expanding with limitless possibilities for content developers to improve how people communicate, create and explore. Acer also offers a wide variety of Windows Mixed Reality Ultra certified laptop and desktop PCs, including the Acer Nitro 5.


The Acer Windows Mixed Reality AH101 headsets are available in blue, can be pre-ordered from leading retailers for $399.99 (MSRP) and are scheduled to ship on Oct.17, 2017. They come bundled with two wireless motion controllers and a limited one-year parts and labor warranty.
