Windows Holographic VR takes you to an immersive virtual world

Microsoft demonstrated the power of Windows Holographic VR during the company's October event. As part of the Creators Update, this new functionality will enable those with compatible headwear to teleport into a fully immersive virtual world. Think of this much like HoloLens but instead you'll be entering a fully-generated environment.

HoloTour takes map viewing to a whole new level with full 360-degree video and interactive elements. You'll be able to enter buildings, reveal locations and more. Creators Update headsets will start at $299 from manufacturers including HP, Asus, Lenovo, Dell, Acer.
