Stopping just short of making any outright product announcements, HP has signaled that it is wholeheartedly embracing the 3D capabilities of Microsoft's upcoming Creators Update for Windows 10 and Windows Holographic for VR. According to HP, that entails working with Microsoft to further blur the line between mixed reality and the real world in its future products.
HP has also confirmed its intention to launch a dedicated VR headset compatible with Windows Holographic. While the company didn't have much more to say outside of a confirmation that something is coming, it did confirm the headset will start at the $299 price point Microsoft alluded to during the Windows 10 event. Headsets are also expected from the likes of Dell, Lenovo, ASUS and Acer.

Fans of 3D printing and scanning should take note as well, as HP notes that both its Sprout scanner and its Jet Fusion 3D printer are compatible with the same 3MF 3D content standard that Windows uses. This should open up plenty of opportunities for experimentation with the Creators Update's 3D capabilities.
In any case, it sounds like we can expect to see some interesting stuff out of HP as we head into 2017.
