The Lenovo Explorer arrived with the launch of Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality efforts in the Fall Creators Update in October, but it wasn't immediately available from the UK Microsoft Store. Just over two weeks later, you can now order the headset directly from Microsoft's digital UK storefront for £399.99.
The Lenovo Explorer works much like the other Windows Mixed Reality headsets from other manufacturers, leveraging inside-out tracking through cameras flanking each side of the front of the headset. This allows the headset to keep an eye on Microsoft's motion controllers, as well as track the space around you.
Also like the other headsets, Lenovo's offering works over a single cable plugged into your PC running the Fall Creators Update. Your PC powers the mixed reality experience that is beamed into the two 1440 x 1440 LCD displays in front of your eyes. In our review, we found the Lenovo Explorer to be a solid choice for jumping into Windows Mixed Reality, albeit with a couple of small gripes.
In any case, if you live in the UK, you can now order the Lenovo Explorer directly from the Microsoft Store online.
