Microsoft has achieved this by essentially giving you a VR headset with a mounted, front-facing camera.

Microsoft rebranded its Windows Holographic tech recently, to Windows Mixed Reality, and announced that other manufacturers would be creating their own headsets for PC.

The Warriors can survive without Kevin Durant
And considering today is Thursday, and the game will air on TNT, why wouldn't they win? Golden State can't fall back on progress. It seems weird to say this after the Durant injury, but the Warriors absolutely should consider themselves fortunate.

Microsoft didn't go into details about its plans for the game console; the company has said in the past that it wants "Project Scorpio" to be VR-capable. Microsoft HoloLens team leader Alex Kipman told CNet that mixed reality involves taking real-life scanned items and placing them in virtual reality (VR). Gesture tracking, another key pillar of the HoloLens experience, is also missing from the Acer HMD.

The future Windows Mixed Reality headsets will cost $299 and will pair with compatible Windows Mixed Reality-ready PCs starting at $499.

Hillsborough Boy Dies In Hot Car
The high temperature in the Brandon area reached the mid-80s on Tuesday. "Today, a sweet little boy passed away". A toddler died in Florida on Tuesday after being left inside a hot vehicle for five hours, authorities said.

According to officials of the company, Microsoft is also planning to bring the MR content to Xbox devices, along with the Project Scorpio by next year.

This news is especially significant since the software giant is now shipping Windows Mixed Reality headsets (previously known as Windows Holographic headset) to developers. Any user can head to their local game store, purchase an Xbox One and delve into its depths in order to develop and ship games for the console. The SDK is a core element in the offering, allowing developers to build mixed reality applications. That makes PlayStation VR the most popular high-end VR headset to date. One of those partners is Acer and it's come along so much, that we could see it launch its first iteration of its AR headset in March. She says, "We use this term mixed reality to represent this spectrum of augmented reality to virtual reality and everything in-between". That means Windows 7's share of the desktop operating market actually increased a bit, leaving Windows XP's slight decrease as the only real positive for Microsoft. The announcement was made during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

Congress, Sheila Dikshit in damage control mode
BJP leader, Dharmendra Pradhan told a press conference that he thanked Sheila Dixit for acknowledging Rahul Gandhi was immature. "It was delayed, but at least the acknowledgement has come".
